Mazars can now serve its clients from its location in Basel as well. According to the company, it plans to use the new office to accelerate its growth in Switzerland “in this strategically crucial region.” Basel Area Business & Innovation, the investment and innovation promotion agency, supported the decision-making process. Mazars with its specific profile will contribute to the differentiated and broad offering of auditing, tax advice, and consulting companies in the cluster of Basel Area.
Mazars states that the Basel Area is an important European hub due to its location and geographical proximity to Germany and France. This is why it seemed logical to the company and contributed to their development priorities to open a new office in the dynamic city of Basel with one of the best life sciences clusters in the world. This brings Mazars closer to many existing clients based in and around the city on the banks of the Rhine.
