Two firms join forces to expand scope of services offered to clients
Kessler Orlean Silver & Co., P.C. (KOS) is pleased to announce that it has merged in Ruzicka & Associates, Ltd. of Northbrook, IL effective December 1, 2014. Ruzicka & Associates, Ltd. and its three principals have moved into the KOS offices in Deerfield, IL and operate under the KOS name.
Founded 38 years ago, Ruzicka & Associates, Ltd. provides a full range of accounting and tax services with a strong specialty niche servicing not for profit (NFP) clients. KOS has a long history of providing innovative accounting solutions to business owners, executives and managers, private investors and professionals. The merger will enhance KOS’s presence in the not-for-profit arena and provide Ruzicka’s clients access to a wider range of tax, accounting and business consulting capabilities.
Anne, Carl and Tony Ruzicka strongly believe that this combination positions their clients to be served with an even broader range of expertise. “We know that our combined resources will benefit our clients, KOS clients and all prospective clients,” stated Anne.
“Our firms share a common culture and a desire to provide superior service and expertise to our clients,” KOS Managing Partner Jeff Arnol said in a statement. “This enhances both of our existing niche sectors and strengthens new business opportunities. We look forward to working together to provide excellent service and deep expertise to current and future clients.”
In addition to expanding niche specialty areas for both firms, the merger also provides clients with additional depth of experience in core services such as audit, tax, accounting and business advisory services. The Ruzickas and Arnol both commented that the management teams of both firms will remain intact and will continue their management and leadership roles within the new firm.
