The Global Management Committee is the highest and most exclusive governing body of Andersen Global, given that it sets the strategic lines of development and management of the legal and tax services firm and is made up of 12 members.
This year, 2022, the Committee has also unanimously approved a new five-year term for Mark Vorsatz as CEO of Andersen Global.
Alongside chairman Vorsatz and José Vicente Morote, the Global Board is completed by Gerald DesRoches (U.S. – New York), Ilan Ben Eli (Israel), Joseph Karczewski (U.S. – Chicago), Ellen MacNeil (U. S. – Washington, D.C.), Dorice Pepin (U.S. – Chicago), Joseph Toce (U.S. – New York), Stefan Kraus (Germany), Jelil Bouraoui (Tunisia), Lena Hamdi (Egypt) and Juan Federico Fischer (Uruguay).
José Vicente Morote, who was elected to this body in March 2021, is also the firm’s European Legal Coordinator since 2018 and a member of the Leadership Committee.
The managing partner of Andersen in Spain has emphasised his “excitement and satisfaction at having been elected by the entire European Committee to represent all the colleagues of the firm in Europe, as it implies support for the work done during this time and a new challenge to continue to meet the expectations of all our professionals.”
During the last year, the Global Board has launched new initiatives, such as the Leadership Committee, which is responsible for ensuring, in the firm’s ambitious expansion process, the three pillars on which the Firm is based: the uniform implementation of the Andersen culture, the integration of all teams and countries and the training of professionals, in order to maintain the Firm’s quality standards. As part of this body, the Training Committee, led by José Vicente Morote, has implemented new proposals, including the relaunch of the Global New Leaders Meeting, which, for the first time after the pandemic, brought together in person last November in Miami the more than 100 new partners who have joined or been promoted at Andersen in the last year.
“We have a new mandate from our colleagues to continue contributing to the development, integration, and expansion of practices and professionals in the more than 160 countries in which Andersen is present,” said Morote, who stressed that the strategy for the coming years will be marked, as in Spain, by continuing to strengthen the culture of excellence and commitment and by focusing on promoting high capabilities in our professionals.
