M.E. Mousa, Co-Founder, Westmusa, Inc.
“An international tax advisory that provides expert tax returns and accounting services to Nordic companies and individuals in the USA.”
That was the business concept M.E. Mousa conceived in the early 1990’s after an exemplary 28-year media career, including service as International Advertising & Media Director at Al-Ahram newspaper in Cairo and New York. In 1993 Mousa convinced his wife, Ann-Christine Westerlund, a partner at Ernst & Young in Finland and the USA, to join forces and together launch Westerlund & Mousa, later incorporated as Westmusa, Inc.
Mousa handled marketing for the new organization, enabling Ann-Christine to focus almost exclusively on client service. Mousa also inspired Ann-Christine as she met and overcamethe challenges associated with starting a client service business in hyper-competitive New York City. Over the years Ann-Christine has emerged as a leading international tax advisor and Westmusa’s client list has grown to include a “who’s who” of Nordic clients. Yet Mousa’s original business concept, vision and support remain at the center of it all.
Mousa was particularly skilled in connecting people and business. In 1991 he was honored by the US Department of State for his success promoting US-Middle Eastern businesses. After retirement, Mousa became an accomplished nature photographer. His work has been exhibited at prestigious shows in New York, Finland, Aruba, and most recently at Miami Art Week. It will be exhibited at Art Expo New York, April 4-7, 2019 at Pier 92, 711 12th Ave, New York City. Mousa’s work also serves as the leitmotif for this website.
M. E. Mousa passed away April 7, 2017.
