Clifton Gunderson Announces Merger
Clifton Gunderson, the 11th largest U.S. accounting firm, has announced its merger with the Colorado-based firm of Van Schooneveld & Co.
Van Schooneveld & Co. brings 36 professionals to the merger and plans to continue operations from its present location in Greenwood Village, a suburb of Denver.
Clifton Gunderson chief executive Carl George commented on the merger: "One of our key firm-wide growth strategies is to further enhance our presence in key Clifton Gunderson markets, like the Denver area. Our combination with the Van Schooneveld firm accomplishes just that and the synergies between our two firms are excellent."
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
