Crowe Horwath LLP is one of the largest public accounting,[dead link] consulting, and technology firms in the U.S. Crowe is an independent member of Crowe Horwath International.

History[edit]

Founding[edit]

Crowe Chizek, was established in 1942 in South Bend, Ind., by Fred P. Crowe Sr. and Cletus F. Chizek. Previously, Crowe had worked in public accounting for many years and also served as the St. Joseph County auditor for eight years. Chizek was head of the accounting department at the University of Notre Dame and also worked part-time in public accounting. Following the death of Fred P.Crowe Sr. in 1952, Cletus F. Chizek reorganized the firm as Crowe, Chizek and Company and two firm personnel, M. Mendel Piser and Fred P. Crowe Jr., became partners. The first legal partnership of Crowe Chizek and Company was formulated in 1962 with six founding partners: Cletus F. Chizek, M. Mendel Piser, Fred P. Crowe Jr., Robert W. Green, Joseph A. Bauters and John J. Pairitz.[1]

Name change to Crowe Horwath[edit]

The firm changed its name to Crowe Horwath in 2008 to strengthen its alignment with Horwath International and in 2009 Horwath International changed its name to Crowe Horwath International. The new name combined the international awareness of the Horwath brand with the United States awareness of Crowe Horwath LLP (Crowe), the network’s largest member firm in the U.S.

Historically, Crowe is one of the fastest growing firms with an average annual growth rate of 17 percent over the past 40 years.[2]
