We are pleased to announce that Jacob Kuperberg, Managing Partner of accounting firm member in Israel, Kuperberg, Ezra & Co has been appointed to the EMEA Advisory Committee of Alliott Group, the global alliance of independent accounting and law firms.

Jacob joins the EMEA Regional Committee at a time of significant growth in the alliance’s presence in the EMEA region. Member firms have been appointed in the last year in Romania, Cyprus, Italy, Germany, Russia, Kenya, Budapest, Morocco, Tunisia, Belgium, Israel, Nigeria, Sweden, Turkey and Poland.

Each of the world four regions (EMEA, North America, Latin America and APAC) has a Regional Advisory Committee consisting of a maximum of 10 volunteer members who are appointed from the region’s membership by the members of the current respective advisory committee. Jacob will play an important role in representing the interests and views of the Alliott Group’s 26 member firms in Israel, feeding back their views to the alliance’s Worldwide Board. Jacob’s expertise will be valuable in helping the alliance to implement its strategic plans in the EMEA region.

Jacob comments:

“As a member of the advisory committee, I now have an excellent opportunity to contribute to the future growth of the membership in Israel and in the EMEA region. There are several countries in the EMEA region where Alliott Group is without representation and the admission of further quality members will add greater value and complement the excellent expertise that our current members firms already offer to members and clients across the world. Also, as the founding president of the Israel Business Consultants Association, I will endeavour to expand the types of services provided by members beyond accounting and taxation."

Alliott Group Chief Operating Officer Giles Brake said:

“Our advisory committee members play an important role as approachable and trusted liaisons who can communicate with the region’s members to ensure their needs are met. We have a large and very active membership in Israel and I can think of no better representative than Jacob to represent their interests. I look forward to working closely with Jacob to develop the alliance’s value proposition in the years ahead."

EMEA Chair Giorgio Marcolongo, Partner of BES Associati and Worldwide Board Member added:

“The EMEA region has the most member firms of any region at present, and we now have an improved balance of law and accounting firms. It is important that we continue with our recent progress- adding great professionals such as Jacob to our regional advisory committee reflects our commitment to ensuring that we have the best people on the team who can help increase co-operation between our members in the region and help propel us forward in the years ahead.”
