New Exton office represents 7th Pennsylvania location for professional services firm
EXTON, PA (June 26, 2018) – One of Pennsylvania’s largest and most respected professional services firms is expanding its presence in Greater Philadelphia to deliver a wide range of business advisory and financial solutions to organizations throughout the region. RKL LLP today announced that it has opened an office in Exton.
“RKL’s new Exton location will allow us to more comprehensively serve our growing client base in the Greater Philadelphia region and establish new relationships within the local business community,” RKL CEO Edward W. Monborne said. “As today’s companies face increasingly complex challenges, we believe RKL’s breadth and depth of advisory solutions uniquely positions us to meet those needs today and tomorrow.”
RKL Partner Barry M. Pelagatti manages operations of RKL’s newest location in Exton, in addition to his leadership of the firm’s Financial Services Industry Group.
“Growing our presence in the Greater Philadelphia region presents a number of opportunities for our valued clients and the RKL team,” Pelagatti said. “We’re excited to bring our results-focused approach to position companies and organizations in Chester County and beyond for sustained success.”
RKL’s 10,000-square-foot office in the Exton Corporate Center, located at 102 Pickering Way, provides workspace for up to 90 professionals from across the firm’s various disciplines, including assurance, tax, risk management and financial and management consulting.
The opening of the Exton office is the latest manifestation of RKL’s longstanding, cross-disciplinary service to business and organizations throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia-based industrial safety equipment manufacturer and supplier, Arbill.
“I’ve come to rely on RKL’s thoughtful leadership across all of the services they provide for Arbill,” said Julie Copeland, Arbill CEO. “We consider RKL a trusted business partner and depend on their proactive guidance and fresh insights to help us prepare for what’s next.”
The Exton location builds upon RKL’s previous foothold in the region, a team of risk management professionals located in Radnor who joined the firm through an October 2016 acquisition. After fully integrating this risk management expertise into its fast-growing business consulting practice, RKL chose to expand its physical presence in Chester County to manage increased regional demand for its diverse lineup of advisory solutions.
Exton represents RKL’s seventh Pennsylvania location for RKL’s CPA, business consulting and investment banking entities, which have operations in Lancaster, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, Reading, York and Allentown. The firm serves clients in all 50 states and has locations across the U.S. through its Information Technology consulting subsidiary, RKL eSolutions.
This geographic expansion underscores RKL’s evolution from a traditional CPA firm to a professional services leader. Thanks to its deep bench of more than 400 team members and a growing range of service capabilities, RKL is able to play a more direct role in its clients’ business strategy and position them for real, sustained growth.
RKL’s innovative and cross-disciplinary approach to delivering solutions continues to propel the firm higher on national rankings – Accounting Today ranked RKL 64th on its 2018 Top 100 Firms list and placed it 15th among Atlantic firms. In 2017, RKL’s engaged, collaborative and community minded culture placed the firm 10th among large employers in the Best Places to Work in PA program.
