PrimeGlobal firms Schneider Downs (Pittsburgh, PA, United States) and AUDITIA (Barcelona, Spain) have been working together for over 6 years to provide clients with outstanding services through their strong international relationship.

Being part of an international association provides members with opportunities to extend their own global reach and build close relationships.

Schneider Downs, a top regional accounting and business advisory firm located in Pittsburgh and Columbus, in the northeastern part of the United States, has an international client in the promotional solutions industry with operations in countries all over the world.  Schneider Downs, under the direction of partner James B. Yard, provides internal audit services to this client.  

AUDITIA’s audit team assists the Schneider Downs team during their audit of the company’s subsidiary in Barcelona, Spain with very country specific and specialized knowledge in the areas of tax and payroll. AUDITIA’s team is also ensuring a fluent communication between the internal audit team and the company staff. This subsidiary location is reviewed on a rotational basis, approximately every 2-3 years. The collaboration between Schneider Downs and AUDITIA has continued for more than six years. During the most recent visit, the Schneider Downs team was led by Holly L. Russo and Marcy L. King. The AUDITIA team included Jordi Prunera, with Pilar Saiz’s support.

After one week of hard work, they met up with Lluis Guerra, partner at AUDITIA, and celebrated this wonderful opportunity of working together by having lunch in a nice restaurant with views on the Barcelona harbor and the Mediterranean Sea. This project not only allows the staff of the member firms to learn about different working procedures, engagements approaches and services to deliver, but also gives the individuals involved a significant opportunity of living a wonderful human experience. Schneider Downs’ client also has key subsidiaries in other important European locations where the United States firm collaborates with other PrimeGlobal member firms.
