Accounting and consulting firm Mazars has appointed René Schöb as the new Country Managing Partner of its Romanian practice. Schöb succeeds Jean-Pierre Vigroux, who has decided to retire from the professional life in the audit industry and focus on his own business activities.
René Schöb is a Tax Partner at Mazars and has been leading the Tax Advisory Department since September 2013, following the merger between Mazars and Adevaris, the firm that he represented as Managing Partner and co-founder. As a result of the merger, Mazars has grown to one of the top five players in the Romanian market specialising in audit, tax, accounting, payroll and advisory.
René Schöb: “It is an honour, a responsibility and a challenge for me to follow Jean-Pierre’s leadership at Mazars. He is a landmark of the professional services’ development in the last 20 years in Romania. I thank Jean-Pierre and my partner colleagues for the trust they have in me. Expectations raised with regards to Mazars’ current stage of development in Romania are high as we continue to strengthen our market position following the recent merger. I am convinced that today’s changing economic environment creates many opportunities for us that we aim to take.”
The departing Country Managing Partner, Jean-Pierre Vigroux, will pursue his career outside Mazars, although he has agreed to maintain an advisory role at the advisory firm.
Recently Mazars launched a new service line in Romania – the integrated Dutch Desk, a new service aimed at assisting the Dutch business community in the country.
