SAN FRANCISCO - Monday, March 3rd 2014
WTAS Global announces further expansion with the opening of a new office in Geneva, Switzerland this spring. The Geneva office is the third WTAS Global location established in the past eight months and reinforces the firm’s objective of providing best-in-class service to its clients whose needs are increasingly international in nature.
“Establishing a location in Geneva is a logical extension of our larger global strategy which is to be in those locations that allow us to best serve our clients,” shared Mark Vorsatz, CEO of WTAS and Chair of WTAS Global Management Council.
Hervè-Antoine Couderc, Co-Founding Partner of STC Partners (WTAS France), will serve as the Office Managing Partner of the Geneva location and will be joined by Christian Couderc, another Managing Director and four staff.
“An office in Geneva has been part of our plan for several months,” said Hervè-Antoine. “This new location bridges our Paris and Zurich locations and is essential to ensuring best-in-class service for our corporate, individual and private equity clients.”
WTAS Global first expanded into the European market in June 2013 when it joined forces with member firm PrimeTax AG, a tax-only firm based in Switzerland. In November 2013, WTAS Global added Paris-based STC Partners, bringing the total number of professionals in Europe to over 100. Geneva is one of several new WTAS Global locations planned for 2014. Hervè-Antoine Couderc serves on the European Management Council for WTAS Global. France will serve as the coordinating seat for WTAS Global’s expansion in Europe.
