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.
