Atlanta-based IPA 100 firm Aprio LLP (FY20 net revenue of $122.9 million) is acquiring RSM’s Firm Foundation program to expand its partnership program with independently owned CPA firms nationwide. The goal is to adopt the firm foundation model and aggressively expand it as a national alliance, focusing largely on firms with annual revenues of $1 million to $20 million. The transaction will become effective on Dec. 1, 2021.
“Aprio is taking the next step in evolving our partnership program and working with firms across the country to drive their success,” says CEO and MP Richard Kopelman. “We are dedicated to sharing breakthrough knowledge, innovation and growth strategies, as well as leadership best practices across the nation’s best, growth-focused firms.”
Aprio launched its partner program in 2017 to help CPA firms grow their businesses and service their clients by offering specialty services including R&D, business valuation, international tax, blockchain, cybersecurity and private equity services. The firm’s current partners will have the opportunity to be part of this new alliance, focused on national growth, connections and referrals.
