IGAF Shows Strong Growth in Latin America
The Lafferty Survey of Leading Accounting Firms in Latin America was published in the 06/27/02 edition of International Accounting Bulletin.
The IGAF fee growth rate was 27.3%; while none the ‘final 4’ public accounting firms could achieve fee growth of greater than 9%.
Additionally, since the information for the survey was gathered, IGAF has added 11 new member firms throughout Latin America.
“This is a great achievement for us,” says Eduardo Bravo, IGAF’s Executive Director for Latin America. “We are impressed and pleased with our growth in Latin America,” says Kevin Mead, IGAF’s President. “Our Latin American growth is critical to further developing the excellence within our network.”

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
