Mazars can now take care of its clients from its location in Basel as well. According to the company, it plans to use the new office to further drive forward its growth in Switzerland “in this strategically crucial region.” Basel Area Business & Innovation, the Swiss location and innovation promotion agency, supported the decision-making process. According to BaselArea, the company will “contribute to the differentiated, broad offering of auditing, tax advice, and consulting companies in the sector cluster of Basel Area with its specific profile.”

Mazars states that the canton of Basel is an important European hub due to its position and geographical proximity to Germany and France. This is why it seemed logical to the company and met their development priorities to open a new office in the dynamic city with one of the largest life science clusters in the world. This brings Mazars closer to many existing clients based in and around the city on the banks of the Rhine.

According to the Executive Director Audit & Assurance at Mazars in Basel, Fabio Cavalieri: “We are already very active in the region and promote local entrepreneurship through the Swiss Venture Club, which also includes the Prix SVC Nordschweiz award, and sponsor local health-tech startups in collaboration with Day One and BaselArea.” With DayOne, BaselArea’s accelerator program, Mazars supports the Health 4.0 Accelerator for scale-ups tackling digital health.

José Caneda, Country Managing Partner Switzerland at Mazars, also notes his particular connection to Basel: originally from Solothurn, he was born in the city.

As of 2023, Mazars is active in more than 95 countries and regions across the world and has more than 47,000 employees. A total of 30,000 members of staff work in an integrated partnership with Mazars and more than 17,000 in the Mazars North America Alliance. In Switzerland, the company is now supported by 400 employees at a total of ten locations.
