Roseville, Calif.-based GALLINA (FY14 net revenue of $41.5 million) has admitted three senior managers to partner: Byron DeStigter in Salt Lake City, Ashley Kroyer in Walnut Creek, Calif., and John Werlhof in Rancho Cordova, Calif.

DeStigter has used his expertise as a CFO of a family-held construction contractor to help clients. He frequently speaks at contractor education seminars focused on accounting, tax and job costing for the construction industry. “GALLINA has very talented professionals. I am excited to tap into GALLINA’s knowledge base and resources to continue providing world-class service to our clients in Utah,” he says.

Kroyer primarily serves construction industry-related clients from general contractors to building owners and real estate developers. Outside of tax and assurance services, she specializes in the affordable housing industry with experience in HUD audits and RHS programs as well as final cost certification audits and low-income housing tax credit compliance.

“The caliber of clients that I work with at GALLINA is extraordinary. These companies are crucial to the Bay Area economy and infrastructure. I’m proud to be part of their team and support their growth as a partner at GALLINA,” shares Kroyer.

Werlhof has published articles in “Corporate Taxation” and “Construction Accounting and Taxation.” For over 10 years, he has provided tax planning and compliance services to privately held businesses, their owners and other high-net-worth individuals. Additionally, he has a broad range of industry experience from real estate to technology.

“GALLINA is a good balance of being large enough to have the resources necessary to provide world-class service, yet small enough to provide the responsive, personalized service of a trusted advisor,” says Werlhof. “I look forward to continuing to work with clients to grow their businesses and developing the next generation of CPAs.”
