RKL Named 18th Fastest-Growing Firm in U.S.

2018 growth of 21 percent also placed firm 61st on Accounting Today’s Top 100 list

LANCASTER, PA (March 14, 2019) – RKL LLP is one of the nation’s fastest-growing firms, according to industry publication Accounting Today. Fueled by its innovative and collaborative approach to helping organizations tackle emerging challenges, RKL achieved 21.46 percent growth in 2018, which earned it the 18th spot on Accounting Today’s 20 Fastest-Growing Firms list. RKL’s 2018 revenue of $82.51 million also placed it 61st on the publication’s 2019 Top 100 Firms ranking and 15th among the Mid-Atlantic region’s largest firms.

“At RKL, we’re driven to uncover new opportunities for cross-disciplinary synergy that benefit both our clients and our talented professionals,” said RKL CEO Edward W. Monborne. “It’s rewarding to see this innovation celebrated among the nation’s leading firms.”

Over the past decade, RKL has been redefining professional services with a focus on solutions that position businesses and organizations for sustained growth. In 2018, RKL continued to empower its team to collaborate around new ways to help clients tackle challenges like a competitive labor market, increasing automation and an unprecedented generational shift in business ownership. The firm expanded specialized expertise in key areas like Human Resources Consulting and Transaction Advisory Services and introduced new capabilities like cloud-based financial and management reporting.

RKL also added three new locations last year that expanded its physical presence and deepened its bench strength in key markets.

On January 1, 2018, RKL merged in Mechanicsburg-based CPA firm Padden, Guerrini & Associates, which grew its Greater Capital Region complement to approximately 50 team members, and its IT consulting subsidiary, RKL eSolutions, expanded its portfolio of market-leading solutions with the acquisition of Simi Valley, California-based Arxis Technology, Inc. In June, RKL opened its newest Pennsylvania location in Exton, allowing the team to more closely serve its sizeable client base in Greater Philadelphia and forge new relationships with the local business community.

This ever-growing menu of services and expanded geographic footprint present unlimited opportunities not only for the firm’s clients but also its talented and growing team of more than 450 professionals based throughout the U.S. RKL’s efforts to provide its team members with a fulfilling and entrepreneurial work environment once again placed the firm among the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania, rising five spots from its 2017 ranking to place 5th among large companies.
