Baker Tilly International Expands African Footprint

4 Jul 2012

Baker Tilly International has expanded its African footprint, welcoming two new member firms to the network.

Baker Tilly Merali's, the network's existing member firm in Iraq, Kenya, Uganda, Maldives and Sri Lanka, has opened an office in Rwanda. Based in the capital Kigali, the office will focus predominantly on serving public sector bodies.

Voscon Incorporated, based in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, provides audit and business advisory services. Established 20 year ago and the largest firm in Liberia by staff and revenue, it will now operate as Baker Tilly Liberia. 

Geoff Barnes, CEO & President of Baker Tilly International, commented: "We have an ambitious strategy to grow and strengthen our operations across Africa, a region that is seeing increased activity by multinational businesses as they look to capitalise on the region's enormous potential. The addition of Baker Tilly Merali's in Rwanda and Baker Tilly Liberia is an important step in helping us achieve this goal and further demonstrates our commitment to ensuring we have the right coverage to support our clients' growth plans."
