Magazine for 2018, your source for the latest stories, features and developments from across the world of corporate finance. In recent news, ZTO Express Inc. (ZTO), a leading express delivery company in China, announced that effective May 1, 2018, Mr. James Guo will resign from the role of Chief Financial Officer due to personal reasons, and Ms. Huiping Yan, ZTO’s current Vice President of Finance, will be appointed as the Chief Financial Officer. Gracing the cover of this month’s issue is pharmaceutical company Sintetica S.A., a company that deliver injectable anaesthetics and analgesics to patients worldwide, through innovative science and excellence in development, production and marketing. We sat down with Pasquale Mitidieri, Global Markets Corporate Director, who provided us with an insight into the success of the firm and also its achievements. Floresta Longo e Associati (FLA) is a professional association of specialised lawyers, tax and labour consultants. They provide specialist legal services both in and out of court across a range of practice areas including but not limited to criminal, civil, administrative, fiscal and labour law. We invited Professor Antonio Longo to tell us more about the success of the company and what makes it so special. Elsewhere in this issue, we take a look at RCG Ventures, who have recently announced Wilkes Graham has joined the executive team as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Graham will lead RCG as it continues to establish itself as the premier leader of value-add real estate in the country. Lastly, Kieti Advocates is a boutique law firm based in Nairobi, Kenya offering a wide variety of expert services to clients across the region. Recently, we spoke to Managing Partner and head of the Corporate Law Practice, Sammy Ndolo, as we look to find out more about the impressive reputation of the firm. Here at Acquisition Intl. Magazine, we hope that you enjoy reading this month’s packed edition and look forward to hearing from you. Jessie Daykin - Editor - READ THIS MONTH’S CPD ACCREDITED ISSUE TO GAIN 6 CPD POINTS
