SEATTLE--()--Peterson Sullivan LLP, one of the top ten accounting firms in the Puget Sound, announced that it is expanding its Seattle presence with the addition of Davenny & Associates PS. The combination is scheduled to close January 1, 2013.
“Our ideal candidate is a firm with clients that can benefit from our existing structure and can bring additional industry expertise and service offerings to our current clients. This is an exciting time, especially since we’re celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2013.”
Davenny & Associates was established in 1992 by Robert A. Davenny, Jr. Mr. Davenny began his career at Ernst & Young, and was the tax partner in charge of their entrepreneurial service group. Davenny & Associates specializes in providing tax preparation and consulting and business advisory services to real estate, elder care facilities, and closely-held businesses and their owners, and to high wealth individuals. Peterson Sullivan will have more than 100 employees in its offices in downtown Seattle.
"Bob Davenny has a tremendous reputation," said Chris Russell, Peterson Sullivan Partner and Executive Committee member. "We hope to take his expertise, combine it with ours, and expand our service abilities in order to better serve our clients."
In joining Peterson Sullivan, Mr. Davenny was focused on his client's needs, as well as growth and career opportunities for his staff. "Peterson Sullivan brings a high level of credibility in the marketplace and is a remarkable partner with significant resources to bring to our clients and staff," Davenny said.
This is another in a series of acquisitions in the last two years. The Seattle office of Anderson ZurMuehlen & Co. P.C. was acquired in 2010. That successful merger inspired the firm to continue its growth strategy by looking for similar opportunities. "We will continue to look to expand in the region to retain a strong position as a top 10 firm," said Russell. "Our ideal candidate is a firm with clients that can benefit from our existing structure and can bring additional industry expertise and service offerings to our current clients. This is an exciting time, especially since we’re celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2013.”
