HistoryEdit

In 1915, Hungarian immigrants Ernest and Edmund Horwath founded Horwath & Horwath in New York.[4][5] The original practice focused on the hospitality industry.[6] The practice later expanded to include accounting, audit and tax offerings.[7] In 1960, the umbrella organization Horwath & Horwath International Associates (HHIA) was established.[8] In 1989, the organization shortened its name to Horwath International.[9] Horwath International rebranded in April 2009 as Crowe Horwath International. In June 2018, Crowe Horwath sees a further evolution of their brand with a move to the network name 'Crowe' across their independent member firms globally.[2][10][11]
