Moore Global chairman Richard Moore to step down after 15 years

After 15 years as chairman at international accountancy network Moore Global, Richard Moore will be stepping down from his position at the end of 2019.

Andy Armanino, a member of Moore Global’s board and former chief executive of US-focused Armanino LLP, will take up the chairman role from 1 January, 2020.

“I am stepping down at a time when our network can face the future with tremendous optimism,” Moore said. “We are now an organisation of true global capability, with a reputation for quality and differentiated client service.”

Since Moore took on the chairman position in 2004, the network’s revenues have grown from $600m to roughly $3bn, with over 110 countries being served.

“I am personally delighted that Andy will succeed me in the role,” Moore said. “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, to continuously better serve client needs.”

Moore is set to remain a member of the network through Moore Family Office Limited, where he will specialise in advising international private client families.

Speaking on his future appointment, Armanino said: “The organisation 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.”

Moore’s grandfather began the original firm in London in 1907 under the name Moore, Partridge & Co. Throughout the years, the name changed multiple times before settling on Moore Stephens International Ltd in 1988, which was finally changed to Moore Global in 2019.

Armanino LLP is a member of the Moore Global network.
