Kreston launches 50th anniversary celebrations

We have launched a series of commemorative activities around the world in celebration of its 50th anniversary this year.

Running from May to November, the global anniversary campaign is formed of several different initiatives – including the inaugural global ‘Kreston Week’ in September, which will feature a global charity challenge open to all member firms. As part of the celebrations, we will also be launching an online, interactive timeline of the network’s 50-year history from 1971 to 2021, featuring key milestones for the network over the years, as well as insights from wider industry experts.

Further schemes include the upcoming release of two video campaigns, including ‘50 Voices of Kreston’ highlighting celebrations in countries around the world and ‘Kreston Natives’ featuring insights and stories from key figures across the Kreston network. The celebrations will culminate with the release of ‘Yearbook 50’, a special publication showcasing highlights from the entire Kreston 50th anniversary celebrations.

Since our foundation in 1971 as one of the earliest accounting networks, Kreston has grown to a network of 170 independent firms in more than 120 countries around the world. Now with five decades’ experience of world class client service, Kreston continues to be a top partner of choice for dynamic businesses and individuals with international ambitions.

Liza Robbins, Chief Executive of Kreston, said:

“Reaching our 50th anniversary is a significant milestone, and one of which we are immensely proud. One of the fundamental reasons for our success has been our collaborative and community-based culture, which I believe sets us apart from everyone else. Celebrating that culture and community lies at the heart of this year’s anniversary commemorations.

“Not only does this significant milestone give us an opportunity to reflect on the progress of the network over the past five decades, it also provides the chance to look toward the future as we further consolidate our leading position in the market and continue to enhance the network’s commercial value to our members and our clients.”
