Glenview, Ill.-based Weiss & Company LLP is merging in Willow CPA Group Ltd. of Inverness, Ill.
Willow focuses largely on tax and assurance services for individuals and businesses. As part of the deal, Willow partners Kim Fritzsche and Donna Fasone will join Weiss as principals.
“While Weiss has always had a strong footprint in assurance work, we were very impressed with Willow’s focus on that area,” says Weiss MP Daniel Fortman. “But the synergy between the two firms is equally important. Willow’s business model, like ours, focuses strongly on accountant-to-client relationships. There’s a sense of trust that’s built up over years, even decades. That interpersonal focus was incredibly appealing to Weiss.”
