Large Wisconsin-based firm Wipfli has joined PKF North America. Wipfli has 110 partners and more than 800 associates in 15 offices in the US and two offices in India.
According to PKF, Wipfli is the 25th largest independent accounting firm in the US, with more than 20,000 clients and annual net revenue of $119 million.
Wipfli is the fourth firm in the past six months to join PKF North America (PKF NA), which has stepped up its campaign to recruit strong member firms in key markets.
The addition of Wipfli brings the collective net revenue of PKF NA member firms to about $1 billion, an increase of about 66 percent on the $598 million the group reported in December 2008.
PKF NA now has 88 member firms in the US, Canada and Mexico.
The firm is also a correspondent of PKF International, which has 233 member and correspondent firms in 119 countries.
The main sectors Wipfli focuses on are auto dealerships, construction and real estate, financial institutions, health care, manufacturing and distribution, and non-profit/government.
PKF North American president and chief executive Terry Snyder said Wipfli gives the organisation “rock-solid representation in Wisconsin, where we needed an anchor”.
“Plus, adding Wipfli fortifies an already-strong PKF presence in the Midwest, home of many superregional firms,” he added.
Wipfli managing partner Rick Dreher said joining PKF allows the firm to ensure it can continue to meet the growing demands of clients and serve their best interests in the US and abroad.
