New global chairman at UHY

Rick David was the COO of its US member firm UHY Advisors

David, who joined the UHY board of directors in October 2012, has over 40 years of experience in the profession. Of which 30 were spent in the audit team of KPMG US.

He takes over from Bernard Fay, managing partner at UHY's Spanish member firm, UHY Fay & Co.

David was also CFO of a Midwest law firm, Butzel Long. He served on the Professional Ethics Executive Committee of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

UHY said one of his main objectives will be expanding its global network. “We are already seeing a large increase in cross-border work coming to the network and that is something that we intend to build on. More of our clients want our member firms to represent them globally and that is what this network facilitates,” said David.

UHY has a presence in 95 countries and is in the top 20 largest global accounting networks.
