Amazing growth for IAPA International – a record breaker of 15 new firms from 16 countries

IAPA has had an explosive beginning to the New Year as it is delighted to announce a record-breaking start welcoming 15 new member firms over the last 6 weeks, with representation in 16 different countries from all 4 Regions, gaining new representation in 5 countries globally.  All Welcome to the IAPA Family!

IAPA International comprises 193 member firms from 70 countries, 337 offices, 1341 partners, some 10,500 employees and a Global Fee Income now exceeding USD$1,4B in combined services.

Nine new firms in the EMEA region, previously members of the ‘International Association of Professional Advisers’, applied and received approval to become members of IAPA International.  Not only does the addition of these firms strengthen the EMEA region generally, but also enhances IAPA’s geographical coverage in two new countries; Switzerland and Poland

As can be clearly seen by our expansion in, and investment to, Africa we now have 11 firms in 10 countries, thanks to the new representation in Benin and Cote d’Ivoire. Our target is to cover all of Africa within 2 years’ time frame.

We have just appointed a very strong legal firm from Italy with offices in Milano and Bologna (new city coverage). IAPA is providing 360 degrees of service line to its members and clients.

We continue to expand in Latin America, with a tremendous 98% growth in turnover for 2018 and now we have fantastic additional coverage in Peru  - a new country for IAPA! 

IAPA doesn’t stop there, it continues to grow in Asia Pacific. We have 2 new members from Pakistan and India that contribute 12 new offices in 12 cities to the membership.

Finally, we have added a new office from Dallas, TX which is a branch of an Asia Pacific regional firm. That is just the beginning for the expansion of our North America region, more to come!

Along with IAPA’s new strategic partnerships, also announced in January, IAPA is attracting many new, dynamic firms with its innovative approach, global strategic collaborations, expanded services and a strong focus on developing member relationships and joint business opportunities. 

Ozgur Demirdoven, IAPA CEO, is absolutely thrilled with the development of IAPA and comments:

“IAPA is rapidly evolving.  Over the last few months we have increased our service offerings and now have an amazing global resource of tax, audit, business advisory and legal professionals – as I call it, a “360 Degrees of Service Line”.

Our members are all passionate about not only providing an excellent service to fellow members and their clients but also investing their energy into developing IAPA to increase global business opportunities.  With the Centre’s extensive efforts and our members’ input, IAPA has increased its services and expertise, created a more collaborative environment for business development and enhanced its recruitment efforts.  The energy we see from our members is fantastic and our prospective members can feel the buzz.  They want to join! 

Along with our unique offerings available through our strategic partners, it is an exciting time to be a member of IAPA – we are ambitious and rapidly expanding.  I am delighted to welcome our 15 new firms from 16 new countries to our family and wish them every success.  Watch this space!  We have more great news on the horizon.”
