Richard Moore has announced that he intends to step aside after 15 years as chair of Moore Stephens International, now Moore Global, and Andy Armanino will succeed him starting Jan. 1.
Armanino, the former CEO and MP of San Ramon, Calif.-based Armanino LLP (FY18 net revenue of $267.2 million) is currently a member of Moore Global’s board.
During Moore’s period as chairman, the network has grown its combined revenues significantly and extended its coverage to more than 110 countries. He will remain an active member of the network through Moore Family Office Limited, where he specializes in advising international private client families.
“We are now an organization of true global capability, with a reputation for quality and differentiated client service,” Moore says. “I am personally delighted that Andy will succeed me in the role. He is an individual with great compassion, drive and vision, and a global perspective on how the role of professional service firms must evolve and adapt.”
Armanino says that Moore’s grandfather started the original Moore firm in London more than a century ago. “The organization is well positioned to meet the main challenges facing our profession as we look ahead: sustaining the talent pool that we need to grow our future leaders and innovators; and, as our business capabilities improve because of a world made faster and smaller through technology and data, we must ensure it is clients, first and foremost, who benefit from our ability to enhance our already strong international expertise and global resources.”
