The international alliance of independent accounting firms, TIAG, recently appointed two new Advisory Board members. Among those is Ronald Storch, Partner in Charge of Operations at Berdon LLP in New York with offices in NYC and Long Island. Berdon, a U.S. Top 30 accounting firm, joined the growing alliance last summer as part of TIAG’s strategy to increase its North American presence. This strategy, a key initiative of TIAG’s Advisory Board, has also resulted in the addition of GALLINA LLP, a U.S. Top 100 firm headquartered in Northern California, and MALLETTE, a Top 10 Canadian firm.
The charge of the Advisory Board includes assisting TIAG’s management in reviewing prospective new members, offering feedback for the planning of international conferences and providing valuable guidance on future plans and initiatives. The Advisory Board holds board meetings at TIAG’s semi-annual international conferences in addition to regular teleconferences.
“Joining TIAG has been a strategic move for our firm,” said Ronald Storch. “The relationships we have, and continue to build through TIAG, and its sister alliance TAGLaw®, will allow our firm to better service our clients wherever they do business. I’m honored to be able to join the Advisory Board and help grow this dynamic, far-reaching organization.”
“Board members have to be experienced in the practice of accounting, knowledgeable about TIAG and sophisticated in their understanding of the global economy, said Robert Sattin, President of TIAG. We’re thrilled to have Ronald lending his insight and perspective.”
