Crowe Horwath, the eighth largest global accounting network, has announced that the network and its member firms have rebranded to “Crowe”.
Dubai, UAE, June 11, 2018: The rebrand has seen over 220 member firms globally adopt the name, Crowe, reflecting the increasingly integrated and seamless nature of the network as well as its shared values and core purpose.
The move has assisted in promoting the network’s shared knowledge and global resources in response to changing client needs, driven by digitalization and the borderless world of modern business. The change of brand happens shortly after another significant development for the network, the appointment of a new Global CEO, David Mellor, who took over leadership as of 1st April 2018.
Under the new brand and leadership, Crowe reaffirms its determination to drive forward the profession and increase discussion of audit, tax, risk and consultancy issues at board level globally while retaining its emphasis on market-leading local expertise.
From June 2018 onwards our new name will be “Crowe”. It would reflect on our brand identity and legal name in UAE will change from Horwath Mak to Crowe Mak.
At Crowe, we know our clients inside and out — from understanding their risk and business concerns to maintaining our global view of their industries and markets. We are well positioned to help them maximize value. We have published the Crowe 100 Decision-Making Index and Report 2018. A look at the art and science of creating lasting value through smart decisions.

By using objective indicators and subjective analysis, it ranks decision-making at the 100 most profitable companies globally according to four components, Growth, Diversity, Boldness and Innovation, over a five-year period (2013 to 2017).
