We are excited to announce that FORVIS and Mazars have agreed to form a unique global network, effective June 1, 2024. This move is not a merger. It is two firms creating a new top 10 global network in the industry and operating under a single global brand — Forvis Mazars.
As the world becomes more connected, we are evolving to meet your changing needs. Mazars, with offices in more than 100 countries, has realized amazing success over the last 40 years, rising in prominence and working with some of the most recognizable brands in the world. FORVIS was built on a 100-year legacy of providing an Unmatched Client Experience®, becoming a top 10 firm in the U.S. while looking toward an expanded global platform. Together, we are creating a new global network that will be unique — a network of only two members — that will have the scale, capacity, and coverage to support our clients’ needs worldwide.
Today and always, we remain committed to delivering an Unmatched Client Experience® that is responsive, personal, and feels right for each of you. Forvis Mazars is structured to be nimble, act fast, and together with lean, aligned leadership, deliver more consistent and agile services worldwide. Our geographic footprints and respective experience complement each other and through Forvis Mazars, you will be able to seamlessly access full-scale international coverage, as well as a truly national U.S. presence, with superior local intelligence.
Why are we forming a global network?
To better serve our clients with international needs and be ready to grow with our clients as their global needs evolve one day. In addition, this ensures that our firm remains strong for the long run. It’s a unique and dynamic time in our profession, with an unprecedented amount of change in our competitive landscape. We continue to see the consolidation of audit, tax, and advisory firms coupled with unique entrants into our profession’s ownership structure. By forming this unique network, we have made sure that our strategic position is such that we will continue to provide the best level of service to our international clients, attract top talent to our firm, and enable our firm to serve your needs far into the future.
In the U.S., Mazars USA will join FORVIS, and we will then become a $2 billion firm, strengthening our position as a top 10 U.S. firm. We will expand our presence in the U.S., to approximately 7,000 team members and over 625 partners and principals active in more than 70 markets.
We are excited about our future and look forward to continuing our commitment to you and our team members as we come together as a global network. We hope you will join us in celebrating this positive development, and we look forward to discussing how it can benefit you. We will share more information in the coming months to keep you well informed of this exciting expansion. Should you have questions, please contact your client service leader.
