Salem, Ore.-based AKT LLP (FY13 net revenue of $38.2 million) has named five new partners, Tracy Allen, Amy Fenerty, Carrie Sowders and Jaime Stimpson for the Oregon offices, and Andy Maffia for the San Diego office.

“This is the largest group of partners we have added in the history of the firm. Each of one of these individuals provides unprecedented service to their clients,” says Steve Tatone, MP.

Allen joined AKT in January 2003 and has practiced public accounting since 1999. She has spent the majority of that time focusing on the construction industry. She was chosen in 2013 as one of 36 participants across the nation for the AICPA’s Leadership Academy.

Fenerty joined AKT in 2000 and is dedicated to serving telecommunications companies. She has experience with clients of all sizes and performs all aspects of the audit. Fenerty provides financial and accounting services, cash flow projections, internal control reviews, as well as regulatory assistance and consulting.

Maffia has 15 years of experience in public accounting, with his focus on auditing nonprofit organizations, organizations subject to a single audit under OMB A-133, agreed-upon procedures and consulting work, as well as assurance audits for closely held companies. He sits on the Board of Directors and serves on the audit and finance committees of a nonprofit located in San Diego.

Sowders has more than 15 years of public accounting experience serving as creative tax advisor to companies predominantly in the manufacturing and distribution, technology and service sectors. She partners with large and middle-market companies, as well as a number of early-stage growth companies, to help them navigate evolving tax laws and plan for tax-efficient growth. She brings to AKT depth in multi-national corporate tax matters, state and local taxation and income tax accounting.

Stimpson joined AKT in 2004 and has been working in the accounting profession for nearly 15 years. Through her role with AKT private wealth, Stimpson provides strategic tax planning, personal financial planning and investment advisory services to high-net-worth individuals and business owners.
