Top Midwest CPA firm expands westward
EDINA, MN — August 18, 2022 — Abdo, LLP, a Minnesota-based public accounting firm providing audit, tax and consulting services for a wide range of businesses, governments, and organizations, is excited to announce that it is expanding its footprint by adding an office in Arizona.
After 60 years of serving clients from its Minnesota-based offices in Minneapolis and Mankato, Abdo continues to grow in numbers and locations with a recent expansion into Scottsdale, Arizona. The new office location gives Abdo access to the thriving central Arizona marketplace, allowing the firm to better serve existing and new Phoenix-area clients, and offers additional business development and networking opportunities.
Joining Abdo in Scottsdale as a new partner is Phillip Wuollet, a seasoned tax professional with strong industry experience in real estate. Wuollet has Minnesota roots; his family founded the Wuollet Bakery, a well-known Twin Cities staple. Wuollet previously served as managing partner for Epstein Schneider CPA firm in Scottsdale. “In my many discussions with Abdo’s people leading up to this decision, it was clear to me that my future – and more importantly, my clients’ futures – would be bright in the hands of such a relationship-centered firm like Abdo. Our values are in line with each other, and I’m looking forward to bringing a new wealth of resources and expertise to Arizona businesses with Abdo,” said Wuollet. Wuollet’s long-time colleague and senior associate Marcy Kaplan is also being added to the new team in Arizona.
The firm’s managing partner, Steve McDonald, elaborated on the strategy behind this geographic expansion. “Abdo is doing what we help our clients do: to navigate a path that achieves business growth goals, focused on the people we partner with in the process. By adding a location outside of our local region, and professionals with depth of expertise, we are able to further grow and diversify what we can offer to those we serve. We believe our approach to clients and employees is unique and we are looking forward to the opportunities Scottsdale provides,” McDonald said.
The geographic expansion also enhances recruiting efforts by providing alternative and flexible work environments for employees, and by attracting new talent from the local campuses and business community.
