Following a successful busy season, RKL team members gathered together at the 2014 Firm Meeting on Wednesday, May 7 at the Ware Center in Downtown Lancaster, to celebrate the firm’s success and envision its future. This year’s event had its greatest attendance yet—a testament to RKL team members’ commitment and dedication.
With over 250 attendees from all RKL offices, the day provided insights on the firm’s future growth and highlights from the company’s 2013 achievements. As the largest accounting, tax, and business consulting firm headquartered in Central Pennsylvania, currently ranking #9 on Accounting Today’s “Fastest Growing Firms in the US,” and #72 in “Top 100 Firms” list, there is definitely much to celebrate.
The all employee meeting was themed around the recognition of what makes RKL as unstoppable, unlimited, and uncommon as it is today in the accounting industry. The event jumpstarted with a pastry-filled breakfast and mixer followed by a meaningful keynote presentation by Ed Monborne, CEO, and the firm’s functional department leaders. Presenters highlighted some of the firm-wide initiatives designed to nurture a strong foundation for RKL’s client-commitment focus and industry-specific expertise, which has been instrumental in fostering revenue growth of 36% over the past three years.
In the afternoon, RKL members were in for a surprise treat—John Garrett, comedian and writer, presented a hilarious stand-up comedy performance on the world of Corporate America and the accounting industry. To add onto the surprise, attendees were randomly pulled onstage for a RKL version of Family Feud. While the stand-up show was certainly met with much laughter, it essentially provided RKL with a unique team bonding experience.
