RKL CPA accounting and business consulting expands into Harrisburg PA
RKL Expands into the Greater Capital Region
New Downtown Harrisburg Office Now Open
RKL is expanding our geographic footprint and bringing our wide range of accounting and business consulting capabilities to the Greater Capital region with the opening of our new Downtown Harrisburg location. The firm opened the doors to our Strawberry Square office in early May under the leadership of newly appointed Office Managing Partner Wade G. Becker.
The move is the latest chapter in the firm’s recent successes. Named the 17th largest firm in the Mid-Atlantic in 2014, RKL has expanded our geographic presence over the past two years to meet growing demand among small- to middle-market, privately-held companies for our five-star accounting, tax and business consulting services.
“We’re looking forward to being geographically closer to our valued clients in the Greater Capital Region and to developing new business relationships in the area. We believe there’s significant opportunity in this market for an accounting and business consulting firm with the breadth and depth of capabilities that RKL uniquely offers,” says RKL CEO Edward W. Monborne.
Becker joined RKL in February bringing more than 18 years in public accounting as well as private industry experience. Prior to joining RKL, Becker was a principal with an accounting firm based in Syracuse, NY. His previous career experience also includes serving as regional managing partner with a “Top 25” firm and four years at a “Big Four” firm, as well as serving as the controller of a high-growth, private-equity backed technology company. Becker was raised outside of Gettysburg, PA and spent 14 years working in the Greater Capital Region before taking assignments outside the area.
“I’m excited to return to the Capital Region and to reconnect with the community and the individuals who provided me a strong foundation for my career as a CPA,” Becker commented.
The 10,000-square-foot office provides workspace for up to 45 professionals and is located in Downtown Harrisburg’s Strawberry Square. The new office is home to professionals from throughout the firm’s various practices including audit/accounting, tax and business consulting, as well as several professionals from RKL’s Senior Living Services Consulting Group.
RKL has experienced remarkable growth in the past two years. With the 2012-2013 expansion of its York, PA location, we added four partners and 30 team members and secured a strong position in the local market. In 2014, the firm was named the 72nd largest firm in the U.S. and 9th in the “Pacesetters for Growth” category by Accounting Today. RKL employs 300+ team members and also has locations in Lancaster, York and Reading.
