On Friday March 3rd, employees of Crowe Horwath - UAE and their family members gathered to celebrate the annual party at the Palm, Dubai. This year's fiesta was further special, as the Firm marked its 35 years since it was founded in 1981 by Dr. Khalid Maniar.

Admittedly, the audit and advisory industry has changed dramatically from when the firm was initially established. Despite all the substantial changes in the industry over the intervening years, our values remain the same. Our continuing success is a result of the firm's commitment, sustainability, leadership, and service.

As we raise our glasses to toast our 35 glorious years in the UAE, we are both grateful for our heritage and proud of our evolution. We believe we have prospered because of our dual ability to stay focused on our core service and our willingness to change and grow.

I would like to personally thank our members, clients and employees for their loyal custom and support.
