2016 Pinnacle Award Recipients
Each year at the Crowe Horwath International Annual Meeting, select individuals are recognized for their contributions to the global network with a Pinnacle Award. Pinnacle Awards recognize those who operate with a global mindset and donate their time and talent in extraordinary ways to advance the cause of the international network.
This year's recipients were Charles Chan, chairman and chief executive officer, Crowe Horwath Hong Kong (CHHK), Jesus Romero, partner, Crowe Horwath Legal y Tributario and Osvaldo Casalanguida, managing partner, Crowe Horwath Argentina.
- Charles founded the Hong Kong firm in 1980 and has enjoyed a sustained period of growth-today the firm ranks eighth in the territory. He has continuously looked for new and differentiated opportunities for CHHK, including forming several entities that allow for CHHK to offer a wider range of consulting services.
- Jesus exemplifies what it means to think and act globally. He has taken much of the great work he's done for Crowe Horwath Barcelona and extended it throughout the network. He is a regular contributor to global thought leadership, author and is frequently seen speaking at important brand building events.
- Osvaldo has long been a network advocate and instrumental in the development and success of the Crowe Horwath brand in Argentina, today ranked at number six in the country. He is widely recognized across the profession, playing an instrumental role in the creation of the Forum of Audit Firms in Argentina where he serves as vice president. For more than 30 years, Osvaldo has understood the importance of our international network and that belonging was just not enough. Under his leadership, Argentina has committed to the development of the network and has always provided resources to help the growth of Crowe Horwath International
Congratulations to each of these well-deserving individuals!
