The International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) has today released its 2019 World Survey, revealing the international rankings of global accounting networks, which puts Russell Bedford International in 17th place.
Over the past two years, Russell Bedford has experienced the 5th highest growth of all networks in the Top 20.
Following the announcement, Russell Bedford CEO, Stephen Hamlet said: "I am immensely proud of all that has been achieved by the network over the past two years. I knew when joining Russell Bedford in 2017 there was a solid foundation upon which we could expand and advance. Our consistent efforts towards network enhancement and brand development have led to us accomplishing a host of achievements from gaining a staggering 30+ new members over the past two years to achieving a record increase in referrals last year of 35% across the network.
Our upward movement in the IAB’s ranking table is a reflection of all of these great achievements and hard work. I am grateful to my supportive team, the dedication of my Chairman, supported by a passionate board of directors, and the forever increasing energy that exists within our member firms all over the world.
We often talk about size and numbers, and ranking positions are indeed important; but with our particular focus on quality, and obtaining the most appropriate coverage for our network all over the globe, this growth promotes even stronger our position as a leading group for attracting firms looking to expand and offer more to their clients.
This is fantastic news for Russell Bedford and I look forward to another fine year head.”
