Crowe Horwath Welcomes Personnel from Saslow Lufkin & Buggy

Chicago-based Crowe Horwath LLP (FY14 net revenue of $153.6 million) has reached an agreement with Simsbury, Conn.-based Saslow Lufkin & Buggy, LLP (SLB) to have its partners and professionals join Crowe on July 1. SLB is an accounting and consulting firm serving clients throughout the country, mainly in the insurance industry.

Established in 1999 by Richard Buggy, Glenn Saslow and Robert Lufkin, SLB is one of the nation’s leading providers of accounting, tax and consulting services to the property and casualty insurance industry. The firm, which has 90 professionals, including eight partners, also serves a variety of New England health care entities and hospital systems and has a well-developed employee benefit plan practice.

With the addition of clients from SLB, Crowe will nearly triple its number of insurance clients and its insurance industry revenue. These will be the first Crowe locations in Connecticut and Vermont.

“Our goal is always to provide an exceptional client experience and, with SLB personnel joining our team, we’re able to enhance our deep specialization in the areas of insurance, health care and benefit plans,” says Crowe CEO Jim Powers.

“Joining Crowe is a great fit with our values and way of doing business,” says Buggy, MP of SLB. “Being part of a national firm that is part of an international network will provide our clients with access to broader resources while also providing significant benefit to our personnel through expanded career opportunities.”
