CORE Revision joins Russell Bedford as member firm in Bern

June 2021

Global professional services network, Russell Bedford International, has announced the appointment of CORE Revision AG as its member firm in Bern, Switzerland.

The CORE Partner group traces its history back to the founding, in 1974, of Treuhand Cotting AG in Düdingen, near Fribourg, on the border between Switzerland's German and French speaking regions.

In 1997, an office in Bern was established and in 2004 Fiduciaire Revicor AG (founded in Fribourg in 1995) joined the Cotting Group. The group holding entity became CORE Partner AG in 2011 and the operating entities were renamed in 2017 as CORE Revision AG, CORE Treuhand AG, CORE Fiduciaire Revicor AG and CORE Medical AG.

The CORE Partner group has eight partners and around 70 personnel.

From its offices in Bern, Fribourg and Düdingen, CORE Partner supports private clients, SMEs, large corporations, public sector entities, non-profits, associations and foundations, providing a broad range of services in the fields of auditing, fiduciary, tax consulting, pensions and financial consulting.

The firm’s partners are members of EXPERTsuisse (the Swiss Institute of Certified Accountants and Tax Experts) and Treuhand Suisse (the Swiss Fiduciary Association).

Speaking about the appointment, Russell Bedford CEO, Stephen Hamlet, said: “It’s fantastic to see further network growth in the EMEA region, having gained two new firms in Malta and Senegal in recent weeks. CORE Partner brings considerable expertise and experience to an already strong region and I have no doubt that our members will welcome their contribution to the network as they add extended services in a host of sectors.”

Michael Münger, partner at CORE Revision, added: “We are delighted to join the Russell Bedford network. With a client base that has operations all over the world, being able to effectively offer global services effortlessly, is imperative to the success of our firm. We feel that we have found in Russell Bedford a like-minded culture in terms of our shared commitment to continued development and we are excited to begin this new journey as we explore new opportunities via the network.”

Klaus-Peter Hillebrand, director of the Russell Bedford board for EMEA, added: “A huge welcome to our new colleagues in Switzerland! I am very excited to begin working with the team in Bern, and their other offices, to bring comprehensive services to our mutual clients.”
