Wipfli, the accounting and consulting firm, has announced the acquisition of the St Louis-based Mueller Prost for an undisclosed sum.
The partners and associates of the full-service CPA group have joined Wipfli effective June 1, 2021.
Founded in 1983, Mueller Prost provides tax, audit and assurance, and business advisory services to over 4,300 clients across 47 states, specializing in healthcare, manufacturing, nonprofit, and real estate.
Kurt Gresens, managing partner at Wipfli, said that the “many points of connection” between the two companies makes it “hard to say” what he is most excited about.
He added: “While it was their entrepreneurial spirit that brought us together, our strong industry and services synergies and longstanding cultural connections between our teams will allow us, together, to bring even more value to the clients we serve and enhance our growth.
“We look forward to expanding Wipfli’s presence into Missouri and Southern California while adding to our talent base in India.”
The deal represents Wipfli’s second acquisition thus far in 2021, and ninth in the past two years.
Doug Mueller, co-founder and president at Mueller Prost, said: “Over the years, we have placed great emphasis on our culture and family values. Wipfli’s core values, knowledge and dedication to client service align very well.”
