McGladrey Expands with Northwest Acquisition

Minneapolis-based RSM McGladrey, the 10th largest accounting firm in the U.S., has expanded its presence in the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of Knight Vale & Gregory (KVG), one of the largest firms in the area. KVG is ranked as the 79th largest U.S. firm.

KVG has served clients in the Puget Sound area of Washington for 80 years and brings a staff of more than 150 to the McGladrey team.

"Combining our national resources with Knight Vale & Gregory's regional presence accelerates our strategy to be the leader with mid-size businesses - their one-stop solution for business advice services," said Tom Rotherham, chief executive officer of RSM McGladrey. "KVG has a strong record of serving mid-sized and owner-managed firms, as well as individuals. This is a solid foundation for building RSM McGladrey's presence in the Puget Sound area."

KVG staff members will continue to serve the same clients they have served in the past. The KVG client base covers a variety of industries including financial institutions, not-for-profit organizations, seafood and maritime businesses, real estate companies, and manufacturing and distribution companies.
