London, United Kingdom, January 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- International professional services group Russell Bedford has announced the addition of Lyon-based Pyramide Conseils to its global network of independent accounting, consulting and audit firms. This addition marks an important step in the creation of a national French network, including the group's long-standing member firm, Transparence, in Paris.
Established by founding partners Ludovic Riboulon and Claudie Nieto in 1989, Pyramide Conseils is now one of the top mid-tier accounting firms in the Lyon area. Its services include all aspects of accounting and tax compliance, audit, payroll services and business consultancy. The firm's 1000-plus clients include entrepreneurs and SMEs in the retail, construction, real estate, professional services, and hotel and leisure sectors.
Pursuing an expansion strategy since 2003, the firm has been highly proactive in combining with smaller firms in the area, in Villefranche-sur-Saône, Crapone and Limonest. Headquartered in central Lyon and managed by its six partners, Pyramide has around 80 personnel located across four sites.
Audit partner Alexis Hartmann commented: "Russell Bedford's policy of accepting only market-leading firms in key localities is a perfect fit with our own development strategy. The opportunity to become part of a new and expanding network throughout France and around the world also convinced us that the time was right to strengthen the positioning of Pyramide as a provider of international support to its domestic client base."
Russell Bedford CEO Alan Bezzant added: "Pyramide Conseils have proved themselves to be one of France's most dynamic regional firms. We look forward to working closely with their team in driving the expansion of the national network throughout France."
