On November 1, 2011, Springfield-based accounting and professional services firm The Whitlock Company welcomed five staff members and Partner Paula Wilson, CPA of Mitchell Roy & Wilson to their company.
This merger will benefit both firms’ clients, according to Joe Page, Managing Partner of The Whitlock Company. “Because we have such extensive experience providing accounting, auditing, taxation and management advisory services to individuals and businesses of all sizes, we have a lot to offer our new clients. But, the Mitchell Roy & Wilson team brings a wealth of experience and additional industry expertise to our firm as well. Our existing clients will find them an exceptional resource.”
The newly joined firms will work out of The Whitlock Company’s Springfield headquarters. According to Page, the change in venue will be the most noticeable post-merger difference for clients of the former Mitchell Roy & Wilson. “We have worked for some time to ensure that this transition is seamless. We look forward to working with our new staff members and earning the trust of their clients,” he said.
