Decosimo, a Top 100 regional public accounting and advisory firm, announced that firm-wide Managing Principal Nick Decosimo was re-elected to the Board of Directors of Moore Stephens North America, Inc.

MSIL is an international network comprising more than 300 accounting and consulting firms worldwide, with nearly 670 offices located in 105 countries, with over 27,000 principals and staff that generates fees of more than $2.6 billion (USD). 

Domestically, MSNA is an association of independent accounting and business consulting firms comprising 50 member firms with nearly 150 offices located in all major cities based throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico that offer services designed to meet the domestic and international challenges faced by MSNA-affiliated clients.  With combined member-firm revenues of $1.1 billion, MSNA ranks as the sixth largest accounting firm association in North America. The Decosimo firm is part of the MSNA association. 

The firms in MSNA are able to leverage their complementary skill sets to provide industry and/or technical practice niche expertise or local engagement support, enabling clients to compete on a global basis and maintain the relationship with their trusted independent firm while accessing the expanded resources of the entire association.
