Lancaster-based CPA and advisor firm, RKL, is continuing its expansion in the Lehigh Valley.
One year since the launch of its Allentown location, the firm said it has more than tripled its office space and added new areas of specialized expertise to its local team of advisors.
The firm said it sought to expand into the Lehigh Valley because of the demand it saw for its accounting, financial management, technology and workforce solutions among companies and organizations in the area.
“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 added 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, including Zachary Galloway small business services manager; Jeremy Schultz, small business senior associate and· James Ruffin, Assurance and Advisory manager
These recent additions have grown RKL’s Allentown office staff to 14 professionals and created 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.
