  • (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2021 - Global professional services network, Russell Bedford International, has announced the appointment of Amirault Mallen & Associés (AM&A) as its member firm in Marseille and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (PACA) region in France. The firm joins existing members of the network based in Paris, Lyon and Nantes.

    In existence for almost ten years, AM&A is a group of French accounting and audit firms based in Marseille and in the surrounding Bouches-du-Rhône area, France’s second largest metropolitan area by population.

    The firms include ORGATEC, CEGEX Littoral, Étang de Berre Expertise and FB Audit & Conseil.

    The group operates from ten offices throughout the PACA region. Its six partners and 95 staff serve some 2500 clients, with a wide range of offerings, including accounting, tax, legal services, payroll, auditing, management consulting and wealth management.

    Clients come from a variety of industries and include mainly small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as large national companies and professional services firms and associations.

    Commenting on the appointment, Russell Bedford's CEO Stephen Hamlet said: "The size and breadth of AM&A's services offer a significant boost to Russell Bedford's French network. I welcome Olivier and his team and wish them every success in this new opportunity for growth and development.”

    Olivier Mallen, co-founder of AM&A, added: "Joining Russell Bedford International is an exciting decision for us. Our clients demand quality services without limits. We hope that with the support and connections our group has through the Russell Bedford network, we will always meet our clients' expectations in delivering the services they need around the world”.

    Emmanuel AMIRAULT, co-founder of AM&A, said: “After consultation with all our partners, it seemed to us that this choice was both very coherent and obvious. Indeed, the sharing of skills and values that bring us together will help ensure and perpetuate the daily support that we provide to all our clients, with a significant and appreciable international touch. A new and beautiful adventure is starting!”

    Christian Esposito, partner and managing director of Étang de Berre Expertise, commented: "Joining Russell Bedford International was an obvious choice for us, in an interconnected world where clients are increasingly looking for local support in Europe and elsewhere. The opportunity, as well as the quality of services provided, allows us to position ourselves with a new target, but in a market that we know and with a level of service quality that we have always applied to our clients.”

    Franck Baumander, partner and president of FB Audit & Conseil said: “Being able to join Russell Bedford International presents a great opportunity for the development and growth of our international client base. The quality of the personalised services we offer allows us to differentiate ourselves by bringing our expertise to companies by entering new markets.”

    Anthony Liger, partner and managing director of ORGATEC added: “We were keen to join a world-renowned group such as Russell Bedford in order to find synergies and to be able to support our clients in their international development”.

    Vivien Besse-Desmoulières, future partner in AM&A CEGEX commented: “In a profession that is constantly evolving, an international opening appears to be a real opportunity, and for good reason, the digitalisation of the profession gives us all the optimal conditions to participate in the growth of our clients. The professionalism and values of Russell Bedford International are perfectly in line with our vision, which will make our collaboration a real success”.

    Klaus-Peter Hillebrand, Russell Bedford Global Board Director for EMEA, added: "Welcome to our new colleagues in Marseille! I am delighted to start working with the team to deliver superior services to clients as we seek to generate even more business opportunities”.
