Orlando — Orlando-based Forehand & Associates team members joined professional services firm CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen LLP) on November 1, 2019.
“Joining the team at CLA allows us to continue to provide our construction clients with the same quality service we have provided for the past 26 years,” says Whit Forehand, managing partner of Forehand & Associates. “It also allows us to offer CLA’s deep experience in wealth advisory and outsourcing to our construction clients, and a wide range of quality audit, tax, and consulting services to industries not currently served by Forehand & Associates.”
Forehand & Associates has focused exclusively on the construction industry and related enterprises since 1993, providing financial statements, income tax strategy, merger and acquisition consultation, litigation support, and general business advice.
“This year, CLA was recognized as the number one ranked construction accounting firm in the United States by Construction Executive,” says Les Eiserman, managing principal of CLA Orlando. “Welcoming Whit and his team deepens and reinforces our commitment to creating opportunities for our clients in the construction industry.”
As one of the nation’s leading professional services firms, named to Accounting Today’s top eight firms, CLA has retained the agility to serve clients of all sizes and in all locations, while at the same time bringing an unparalleled depth of capabilities, all in one place.
“To our clients, this transition should feel seamless. CLA shares our focus on delivering results to our clients that provide quality and value,” continues Forehand. “We’ve known the team at CLA for years through interactions on national construction committees and other construction industry leadership positions.”
The seven former Forehand & Associates team members will continue to serve clients locally and nationally from Orlando, alongside CLA’s Florida team of nearly 300 professionals.
CLA exists to create opportunities for our clients, our people, and our communities through industry-focused wealth advisory, outsourcing, audit, tax, and consulting services. With more than 7,500 people, 121 U.S. locations, and a global vision, we promise to know you and help you.
