Prosperity CEO appointed to LEA’s Global Board

Prosperity Advisers is a member of LEA Global / Leading Edge Alliance ranked by the International Accounting Bulletin as the second largest International firm association of independent accounting firms for 2014.

The LEA Global is an International alliance of independently owned accounting and consulting firms. Established in 1999, The LEA has more than 190 member firms worldwide with collective revenues of over 2.9 billion USD. Over 100 countries are represented by the association.

“By utilising technology, developing innovative special interest groups, and connecting internationally to the knowledge of our member firms, LEA Global members are able to compete on a substantial scale, throughout the country and across the globe,” stated Michael Davis, Managing Partner HW Fisher & Company, London and LEA Chair.

“LEA provides the resources that support their consistent growth and, subsequently, its own. The combined knowledge of the many top firms in LEA is shared across all firms, and contributes to the continuing success of each.

“When the idea for LEA was conceived, the plan was to introduce an independent association that helped firms compete with the Big Four. The competitive landscape changed since our inception in 1999 as other large national and regional firms emerged. Yet the continued growth of the Alliance is a testament to the independent successes of member firms and their ability to understand and proactively deal with new challenges. The appeal of an accomplished association that consistently meets the needs of its membership is indisputable,” said Gary Shamis, Managing Partner SS&G Financial Services, Inc. & LEA Chair Emeritus.

“Accounting has come out of the dark ages. The most successful firms operate as strategic businesses, and this view extends to its client base, centers of influence and the alliance it belongs to.  Over the past 14 years, LEA’s success has proven that the attention and support it provides to its members, including their overall operations special interest groups, has been a major factor in the success of its member firms.”

LEA Foundation firm, Prosperity Advisers Group CEO, Allan McKeown has recently been appointed to LEA’s Global Advisory Board.

Prosperity is a full-service accounting, business and financial advisory firm.  Prosperity has an East Coast footprint with offices in Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane.

McKeown said “our firm’s membership has been invaluable in providing our clients with personal contacts and a global reach to assist with their International business expansion.”
