Theo C Theodoulou, Audit Chair of Kreston Global said:

“I am honoured to have been selected as Chair of the Kreston Global Audit Group at such an exciting time for the Kreston Global network. The audit sector continues to face an escalating pace of change, and for us change starts with redefining our goals and approach, including the way in which we interact with member firms and implement strategy across the network. We will inevitably face various challenges, as well as opportunities in the coming months, and in response I hope to build on to date by promoting a fully collaborative exchange of ideas, materials, and support between individual member firms.”

Liza Robbins, Chief Executive of Kreston Global, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Theo as new Audit Chair of Kreston Global. Theo has considerable exposure to the audit profession; as we continue to evolve, and as member firms begin to adjust to the new normal, his commitment to future proofing and streamlining audit strategy and knowledge sharing will benefit not only the component parts, but also the cohesion of the whole Kreston network.”
