Guthoff Mehall Allen & Company Joins CliftonLarsonAllen
Bloomington, Illinois — January 4, 2016 — Guthoff Mehall Allen & Company joined professional services firm CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA), effective January 1, 2016.
“Our industry becomes more complex and specialized all the time,” says Rick Mehall, partner at Guthoff Mehall Allen. “Joining CLA allows us to offer deeper resources and expertise to our clients, while retaining the close, personal attention our clients expect and appreciate from a small firm.”
Guthoff Mehall Allen and CLA share common roots. Each built a practice based upon forming lasting relationships and offering relevant capabilities for individuals and small- to mid-sized organizations. “Our firm’s objective has always been to provide continuous high-quality service to our clients,” says Cathy Allen, partner at Guthoff Mehall Allen. “CLA offers services similar to ours, but with a wider breadth of staff and other resources. We look forward to working with them.”
Today, CLA offers integrated wealth advisory, outsourcing, and public accounting capabilities — because clients showed a need.
“Our clients expect us to fully understand their business, not just the accounting function,” says Steve DeBruyn, chief practice officer at CLA. “When we fully understand our clients, we earn their trust and respect and they feel free to turn to us for advice. And, we feel free to come to clients with ideas and suggestions. Growth and success follow.”
