KWC Certified Public Accountants (KWC) today announced its expansion in Richmond, Virginia through a merger with Kimble CPAs.

 

“We are excited to expand in the Richmond market,” said Connie Hammell, Managing Principal at KWC. “Adding the Kimble team strengthens our existing Richmond presence and provides additional opportunities to serve our mutual clients in this market.”

 

Kimble CPA has extensive experience in service to closely held interests, not-for-profit entities, and individuals. The firm serves clients located in Virginia, their home base, as well as in California, Florida, Maryland, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming. In addition to basic audit, tax and accounting engagements, Kimble has provided counsel on important financial decisions, key employment choices, trust and estate planning, business expansions, and international matters.

 

“As a StrengthsFinder firm, Kimble has always sought to leverage the talents that each of our partners, managers and staff bring to the table,” said Kimberley VanHuss, Kimble CPA Co-Founder and Tax Partner. “Through this merger with KWC, we are enhancing our commitment to bring the right people to the right project to provide the best results and client experience. I am thrilled for this new venture, which is a win for both our teams and the individuals and businesses we serve.”

 

Kimble CPA was advised on the transaction by Sterling Point Advisors, an M&A advisory firm based in Richmond, Virginia. “This combination has everything you look for in a great partnership – from alignment of culture to complementary capabilities and services,” added Luke Campbell, Managing Director at Sterling Point. “It has truly been a privilege to help Kimble start this exciting new chapter. They could not have found a better partner.”
