For DFK Gooding Partners 2022 is a milestone year, marking global independent accountancy association DFK international’s 60th anniversary.
DFK International has 229 member firms which have a combined total of 441 offices across 93 countries. The association strives for equality, diversity and inclusion, promoting a culture that celebrates difference, challenges prejudice and ensures fairness. For DFK Gooding Partners, DFK provides support for clients to do business internationally, referring them to like-minded firms with similar values to provide a seamless service. The association provides a platform to share knowledge, ideas and best practice as well as information about the latest technology. It is also a pioneer in training and development, creating programmes to specifically develop young professionals in the industry as they progress in their careers.
Martin Sharp, executive director of DFK International, said: “In 1962 the founders of DFK International envisaged setting up an association of independent firms that could support their clients to do business internationally and provide an alternative to the big networks which were being set-up. Although DFK has grown considerably and the international business landscape has changed, the principles and ethos on which DFK was established still remain.”
“Beyond this, DFK provides a forum to share knowledge and best practice between like-minded individuals who are keen to support their clients and help fellow member firms. We have a strong family atmosphere which has grown over the years to give member firms the opportunity to build relationships with people from different countries and different cultures. This year we celebrate this success and look forward to continuing to build these relationships in the years to come.”
“DFK Gooding Partners joined DFK International in 2008 to further service its increasing number of clients conducting business overseas, and to add to our knowledge base via the extensive network that DFK offers” DFK Gooding Partners Managing Partner, and DFK International Deputy President Stephen Bushell “We are incredibly proud to be a member of DFK, and we are thrilled to be able to support the association in the celebration of a milestone anniversary year.”
