Today, CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen LLP), the eighth largest accounting firm in the United States, announced plans for a new office in Tacoma, Washington.
The office will be the firm’s 10th in Washington and CLA will be the only national CPA firm with an office in Tacoma. CLA plans to open its Tacoma office in the first quarter of 2023.
“We’re excited to expand our footprint and bring the CLA family to a growing market like Tacoma,” said Jen Leary, CEO of CLA. “The current redevelopment of downtown Tacoma is very impressive and we’re glad to be a part of it.”
CLA has hired Robert Best, a well-known longtime Tacoma CPA, to help lead the office. Best has more than 30 years of experience working with Tacoma businesses.
CLA also already has many clients in the Tacoma area.
The new Tacoma office further solidifies CLA’s significant presence in Washington. The firm also has offices in Bellevue, Spokane, Yakima, Kennewick, Wenatchee, Omak, Othello, Quincy, and Moses Lake.
“Tacoma’s flourishing redevelopment and strong talent pool is exactly why we are so excited for our latest expansion,” said Dan Frein, managing principal of CLA Western Washington. “This is a tremendous opportunity to deliver seamless client experiences and bring our firm promise to the Tacoma marketplace, while finding ways to positively impact the community.”
