- New international firm will assist companies with governance, risk and

Crowe Horwath Global Risk Consulting (CHGRC) is a newly formed global
professional services firm assisting multinational companies with their
governance, risk and compliance needs. The firm's chief executive officer
(CEO) is U.S.-based Larry Rieger, who has more than 35 years of
multi-national client service experience and is a noted expert on corporate
governance, risk and compliance. As CEO, Rieger is responsible for
implementing a singular global client service delivery model.

"Companies we've worked with were looking for someone to provide a
consistent approach to their risk, governance and compliance needs across
their global markets, rather than treating it like a local service. We
created CHGRC to meet this market demand - one consistent global service
model, provided by one global firm - rather than following the network member
approach used today by many large accounting firms," said Rieger. "Each
market that we enter will be serviced by the single global firm through a
standard global service approach, with oversight established by CHGRC's CEO
and monitored by the board of directors."

In addition to its presence in the U.S., CHGRC will initially have
offices in the United Kingdom, China and Japan. The firm identified these
markets as critical economic centers within their regions, and all are
countries with a heavy presence of multinational organizations. From this
initial base, the firm will expand throughout European and Asian regions as
the market demands.

CHGRC is a member firm of Crowe Horwath International. The international
network, ranked among the top 10 global accounting networks, consists of more
than 140 independent accounting and advisory service firms with 640 offices
in more than 100 countries around the world.
