The EGIAN group represents the European members of leading
international networks outside the Big 4. Comprising 20 members
which generate some €5bn in revenues and employ around 79,000
people in Europe, it allows mid tier firms to discuss and put
forward a common opinion on the key developments affecting the
profession in Europe.
Brown believes the group has an important role to fulfil: "The
accountancy profession is undergoing significant and rapid change
driven by new regulation and market demand. EGIAN allows its

the key regulators on important issues to ensure that the public
interest, the interests of all stakeholders and the interests of
the members are promoted".
Andrew Brown has, since 2006, responsibility at Baker Tilly
International to develop and work on international business
development projects in the public and private sectors.
