NewPoint Group Merges with Crowe Horwath

As part of Crowe Horwath LLP's continued national expansion efforts, the firm is welcoming the talent of Sacramento-based NewPoint Group, a consulting firm serving state and local government clients in California. NewPoint's seven professionals, including its two founders, join Crowe effective October 1.

Established in 1995 by James A. Gibson and Edward R. Kaempf, NewPoint has developed strong relationships with various California state and local government agencies by providing a broad range of management services, including strategic planning, program evaluation and development, environmental consulting projects, process improvement and innovation, cost allocation and rate setting, and information technology feasibility analyses. Combined, NewPoint's professionals have more than 125 years of California government consulting experience. Gibson and Kaempf will be directors at Crowe.
Crowe first expanded into Northern California in 2011 when Perry-Smith LLP personnel joined the firm, establishing a presence in Sacramento and San Francisco, with more than 100 professionals.
"Joining Crowe is the culmination of the more than ten years we've spent working with Bob Perry-Smith and his team on large government projects," said Jim Gibson, formerly of NewPoint. "We're looking forward to continuing that excellent relationship and working with other consultants at Crowe." 
"Our goal is always to provide an exceptional client experience, and with NewPoint personnel joining our team, we're able to enhance the depth of the government consulting services we can offer," said Chuck Allen, Crowe's chief executive officer. "NewPoint is known for its extensive California qualifications and experience, and we're pleased to welcome them to Crowe."
