Schneider Downs Expands Global Resources through Strategic Membership in PrimeGlobal
Schneider Downs announces that its accounting association of choice has launched a new name and image that reflect its status as the third largest association of accounting firms in the world. Formerly known as IGAF Polaris, the new PrimeGlobal provides Schneider Downs with significant expertise and resources to meet growing client needs, both internationally and domestically.
“The new PrimeGlobal name, logo, and website set us apart in the same way that the expertise, relationships, and global connectivity of firms like Schneider Downs set us apart from many other associations in our market space,” says Kevin Mead, CEO of PrimeGlobal. “Underlying the new look and feel are all the core values our association stands for: international reach, strong personal connections, technical depth and experience, and elite quality and service. The PrimeGlobal name and image clearly express how we are viewed as an association both by our membership and by the clients that they serve.”
“As the third-largest association of accounting firms in the world, PrimeGlobal has a unique story to tell,” explained Raymond W. Buehler, Jr., President and CEO of Schneider Downs. “Through this name change, we’re better able to communicate our members’ abilities to meet the increasing global needs of our clients.”
The new association website, www.primeglobal.net, is proud to feature thought leadership and expertise from member firms. With easy-to-navigate access to PrimeGlobal firms through expanded directory search, comprehensive services/industries lists, and more, the site is an excellent complement to the resources available to clients via the Schneider Downs website and demonstrates that Schneider Downs can provide clients with the access they need to highly expert and technically skilled accounting and consulting firms around the world.
