ALLENTOWN, PA (November 30, 2022) — One year since the launch of its Allentown location, CPA and advisory firm RKL LLP has more than tripled its office space and added new areas of specialized expertise to its local team of advisors. The firm’s investment in the Lehigh Valley comes in response to continued demand for its accounting, financial management, technology and workforce solutions among regional organizations.
“We opened our office in Allentown to be closer to many valued clients, but we always knew there was unlimited potential to serve the regional business community,” said RKL CEO Ed Monborne. “We’re proud that our growth in the Lehigh Valley allows us to help even more organizations reach the next level.”
This summer, RKL expanded its space in the Butz Corporate Center from 2,600 to 8,400 square feet. The new office provides more space for client meetings and team collaboration, and better accommodates RKL’s growing team in the region. In the past several months, three team members have transferred to Allentown from other RKL offices:
- Zachary Galloway, CPA, Small Business Services Senior Manager
- Jeremy Schultz, CPA, Small Business Services Senior Associate
- James Ruffin, CPA, CISA, IS Assurance and Advisory Manager
These recent additions grow RKL’s Allentown bench to 14 professionals and create a local base of expertise in IT risk assessment, SOC reporting and employee benefit plan audits. Additionally, Eric Williams, an existing Allentown team member, recently took on a new role as a wealth analyst, serving the financial and legacy planning needs of high-net-worth individuals and their families.
Today, RKL was joined by local business leaders and elected officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its expanded Allentown presence.
“It’s an exciting time for RKL as we continue to establish our brand and grow our presence in the Lehigh Valley,” noted Michael Stoudt, Lehigh Valley Managing Partner. “Our team is seizing the chance to work with dynamic local businesses and contribute to the region’s economic success.”
This Lehigh Valley expansion continues a trend of growth activity for the firm, which is the largest CPA and advisory firm headquartered in Central and Eastern PA. It recently launched a new entity, RKL Virtual Management Solutions, focused on optimizing and managing the accounting, finance and workforce functions of organizations nationwide. Earlier this month, RKL introduced Private Wealth, a continuum of services to grow, protect and transfer wealth.
