Top talent from Tanzania for Mazars

The East Midlands offices of Mazars, the international accountancy and advisory firm, have announced the appointment of Kumail Dhirani as Audit Senior.

Kumail joins the company after a four and a half year career working as an auditor in Tanzania in the Eastern African branch of an international accountancy firm.

In his new role, Kumail will be based at the firm’s Leicester office and will be responsible for planning and overseeing audits, preparing financial statements and performing audit completion procedures for Mazars’ East Midlands clients. He will also coach the junior auditors in the team, providing them with on-the-job training.

Kumail said: “Mazars has a fantastic reputation not just in the UK but worldwide and coupled with its impressive size and plans for further growth, I knew that the firm would be best placed for me to continue my auditing career. Mazars is well equipped with highly experienced individuals who specifically serve the needs of their clients which was also something that attracted me to the role. I believe that as auditors we tailor our approach to suit the client and I was pleased to see that at Mazars, they shared the same aims, objectives and work methods that I have always found important.”

Bob Johnson, Partner at Mazars, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Kumail to the team and it is so great to see our audit team expanding with the likes of such impressive talent. Senior auditors are such an integral part of our team and we are always on the look-out for talented seniors to join our team.

He added, “Forming the backbone of the audit team, Audit Seniors help train the next generation of auditors and ensure that we are always providing the exceptional levels of service that people have to come to expect from Mazars.”

Kumail’s appointment also comes just two months after the firm announced Tanzania has just joined the roster of countries in which they now operate.

Kumail added: “Mazars is not only well established in the UK but it’s great to see them continue their expansion into other countries around the world, with Tanzania and Rwanda being the most recent to join the 77 countries that they previously operated in. That being said, I believe further growth is for certain and witnessing how the Leicester office has developed and grown within the short space of three years is testament to that.”
