Ouassim Akil appointed to Alliott Group’s EMEA Regional Advisory Committee
Global multidisciplinary alliance appoints Moroccan chartered accountant Ouassim Akil to represent African region on regional governance committee.
We are pleased to announce that Ouassim Akil, Managing Partner of accounting firm member AKONSEIL in Morocco, has been appointed to the EMEA Advisory Committee of Alliott Group, the global alliance of independent accounting and law firms.
Formerly of PwC Morocco and an Alliott Group member since January 2019, Ouassim and his experienced team offer tax, accounting, payroll, corporate financial advisory and audit services to national and multinational companies in the pharmaceutical, retail, manufacturing, construction, real estate and transportation sectors.
Advisory committee members act in an advisory and supportive capacity to members in their region and are the “eyes” and “ears” feeding back their views to the Worldwide Advisory Committee and the Worldwide Board.
Ouassim’s appointment comes at a time of significant growth right across the EMEA region, but specifically in Africa, with new firms joining within the last 16 months in Kenya, Morocco, Tunisia, Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
“As a member of the advisory committee, I now have an excellent opportunity to contribute to the future growth of the membership and to represent the interests and views of the diverse African region. The alliance has a valuable proposition for independent firms in the African region and I am pleased to help drive our expansion further across the continent.”
Alliott Group Chief Operating Officer Giles Brake said:
“We have a large and very active membership in Europe and across the African continent. Since joining Alliott Group last year, Ouassim has been an excellent advocate for the alliance in Africa. Ouassim brings important insights, ideas and energy to this role and his willingness to contribute to growth initiatives has already made a big impression on us. I look forward to working with Ouassim in the next few years as we take steps to make Alliott Group a really strong force in Africa.”
