Illinois CPA firms announce strategic alliance
Mowery & Schoenfeld, an accounting, tax and consulting firm based in Lincolnshire, Illinois, has announced it has entered into a strategic alliance with the principals and other accountants of Katch, Tyson & Company, effective August 1, 2009. This transaction will create a combined staff of more than 40 people, making Mowery & Schoenfeld one of the area's largest firms focused on serving the business and financial advisory needs of mid-sized businesses.
"Combining the accounting, tax, technology, and consulting services of our two firms accelerates our strategy of building a leading firm serving mid-sized businesses," said Jeffery Mowery, managing partner of Mowery & Schoenfeld. "The people at Mowery & Schoenfeld have a history of serving the needs of closely-held owner-managed businesses, and high net worth families. We have a unique ability to work with our clients in a proactive manner to help them achieve success and build their financial strength."
"We are proud of our nearly 40 year history as a quality oriented CPA firm. We recognize that the next step for our organization was to expand by adding additional accountants of comparable quality that would enable us to expand services to our local, regional, and national clients, as well as provide more career opportunities for our people," said Ronald Katch. "Mowery & Schoenfeld shares our client philosophy of helping our middle-market clients grow and succeed, and the affiliation will broaden and deepen our existing industry and functional specialization, enabling us to offer more comprehensive business advice tailored to our clients' needs."
"The Katch Tyson personnel will work together with us to proactively serve their clients' needs from Mowery & Schoenfeld's offices in Lincolnshire, Illinois," Mowery added.
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.
