International Board

The International Board, which consists of a minimum of 15 elected members, has ultimate responsibility for upholding the values and standards and setting the procedures of the network, and oversees the work of the CEO and the Global Office team.

Board members are drawn from individuals who are, or have previously been, senior partners (or the equivalent) of Baker Tilly member firms and are elected for a four-year term by representatives exercising their votes through their member firms. The Board comprises directors from each of our regions and represents member firms of different sizes.

The International Board meets in person twice a year and on further occasions as required.
