Punchkick Interactive of Chicago, a digital consulting firm, will join Milwaukee-based Wipfli (FY19 net revenue of $362.5 million) on March 1.
Since 2006, Punchkick has focused on designing and developing mobile apps and websites for some of the world’s noteworthy brands. Punchkick’s engineers and designers will become part of Wipfli Digital, which offers digital and technology services that include strategy, experience, process and security.
“We’ve been quite impressed with Punchkick’s track record and technical expertise in delivering custom software development services to businesses seeking creative ways to better connect to their customers,” says Wipfli MP Kurt Gresens.
Co-founder and CEO of Punchkick, Zak Dabbas, says, “As part of Wipfli Digital, we’ll be able to better serve and drive impactful results for our mid-market clients who often stand to benefit the most from digital innovation but are largely under-served. With this combination, we’ll also be able to offer our clients the ﬂexibility and approachability of a boutique ﬁrm with the resources and expertise of a large consultancy.”
Wipfli Digital will now offer the following expanded services:
- Mobile application and software development
- Data analytics and customer insights
- Platforms that enhance customer experience

Following the effective date, the firm will have more than 2,600 associates in 50 offices.
