Crowe Horwath International has elected David Mellor as chief executive officer. Mellor, who will succeed Kevin McGrath, will lead Crowe Horwath effective April 1, 2018.

Mellor was elected CEO through a rigorous, disciplined and year-long succession process led by the network’s board of directors.

Until recently, Mellor was Crowe Clark Whitehill’s chief executive, the UK member firm of Crowe Horwath International. He has served on the Crowe Horwath International board of directors for four years. Mellor has more than 25 years of professional experience advising international businesses and their shareholders on tax matters. He will continue to provide input, support and counsel to Crowe Clark Whitehill until the end of March 2018.

“Crowe Horwath is a network that distinguishes itself in the market by bringing smart decisions that deliver lasting value to clients, talent and the communities where we live and work,” says Mellor, who is based in London.

Mellor adds, “I am committed to building on the strong foundation Kevin has created. Under Kevin’s leadership, Crowe Horwath has gained position to become the eighth largest global professional services organization and achieved five years of sustained revenue growth. He has also expanded our member footprint so that our firms can successfully serve clients wherever they choose to do business and moved the network toward becoming a more integrated global brand.”
