Wednesday, June 18, 2014

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. (MSNA). MSNA is one of eight regional members of Moore Stephens International Limited (MSIL) headquartered in London. 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. This ability to house a depth and breadth of service offerings and expertise within an accounting firm association enables MSNA to compete with the Big 4 and other large national firms. 

Mr. Decosimo is a part of a seven-member Board of Directors for Moore Stephens North America. “Moore Stephens has established a worldwide reputation for excellence, and I am honored to have been reelected to serve on the board of Moore Stephens North America,” said Mr. Decosimo. “Our firm and our clients have greatly benefitted from Decosimo’s association with Moore Stephens and I am looking forward to continuing to work with the MSNA Board of Directors.”  MSNA’s executive director Steven Sacks said: “We are very pleased to have Nick’s continuing participation and guidance during this period of enormous changes in the profession.”
