Accounting and consulting firm Kreston has in recent months added three new member firms to its international network: Díaz & Zeledón in Costa Rica, KPMT Orien in Tajikistan and PT Pratama Indomitra Konsultan in Indonesia.
Founded in 2001 and based in San José, Costa Rica, Díaz & Zeledón is a local professional services firm that offers the full range of audit, accounting and advisory services. Remarking on the addition, Kreston CEO Jon Lisby, says “This quality firm was recommended by Lisicki Litvin y Asociados, Kreston’s member in Argentina and we look forward to working with Lorena Zeledon and her team and to raising the prominence of the Kreston brand in Costa Rica.”
KPMT, which means ‘Analytical and Consulting’ in the Tajik language, is based in Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s capital and largest city. The firm is run by three partners and works mainly across the public, real estate and non-profit sectors. The move expands Kreston’s profile across Central Asia, adding to its existing base in Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
Bakhtovar Sherov, one of KPMT Orien’s partners, says it is an honour to join Kreston International, adding “We look forward to working alongside fellow member firms in the region and we will now be able to better compete in the local and global market place.”
Founded in 2010, Pratama Indomitra offers tax consulting, accounting, risk management and corporate governance services to its clients in Indonesia. The affiliation adds to Kreston’s existing member base in Indonesia (KAP Hendrawinata Eddy Siddharta and Tanzil), with the bolt-on, according to Lisby, enabling the firm to offer the full range of business advisory services. Combined, Kreston Indonesia now has a team of 29 partners and more than 420 professional and support staff covering Jakarta, Medan, Surabaya and Yogyakarta.
Lisby, reflecting on the additions, says: “We are delighted to welcome all from Pratama Indomitra to the network. Combined our local firms are expected to advance within the top 10 national rankings and will be better placed to compete in the market”.
