Alliott Global Alliance, the world’s sixth largest, multidisciplinary alliance of professional services firms, has expanded its reach in Central America by appointing Galeano & Asociados as their accounting member in Panama. The alliance has member firms in Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador, and now Panama.

Galeano & Asociados’ affiliation with a global alliance positions the firm as an internationally connected, local provider of accounting, audit, tax and advisory services to domestic and foreign companies and investors operating in and through Panama. The firm also gains access to the depth and breadth of resources and new opportunities for business growth offered by a global alliance that has 180 member firms in 80 countries across the Asia Pacific, EMEA, Latin America and North America regions.

Established in 2019 by Managing Partner Juan Galeano Him, a former EY partner, Juan and his experienced team offer the full range of audit, tax, and accounting services to clients in the commercial, education, real estate, retail and finance sectors. The firm’s client base includes companies with business activity in Central and South America, but also in North America and Northern Europe.

“I am delighted that we have been selected to be Alliott Global Alliance’s accounting firm member in Panama. Developing our international connections through a recognized professional services alliance is an important part of our expansion strategy. We are 100% committed to offering our clients and those of our alliance colleagues, a transparent and quality service, and will support each of them with their business interests, ensuring that whatever we advise, has a positive impact on their business and industry.

“Among our professional staff, we have vast local and international experience and offer a high level of professionalism that is aligned with other member firms. I look forward to collaborating with members in the region and internationally, and to contributing to the alliance’s ongoing success.”

Alliott Group COO Giles Brake adds:

Thanks to their clear vision and strategic approach, I have no doubt that Juan and his partners will propel their firm forward to become one of Panama’s major players in the country’s professional services market. This is a firm to watch!”
