Frazier & Deeter Joins PKF International

PKF International welcomes the signing of Atlanta-based Frazier & Deeter (FY15 net revenue of $66.9 million), an IPA 100 and Best of the Best firm, to re-join its global network of independent firms.

Frazier & Deeter, also a member of CPAmerica, has prior experience with the PKF network. The firm works with many multinational clients, and the alliance with PKF International will enable Frazier & Deeter to better support these clients, the association announced.

MP Seth McDaniel says, “We are committed to producing quality work by going the extra mile to achieve great results for our clients. Frazier & Deeter has grown significantly over the years, and by re-joining PKF we will be able to better serve our clients across the U.S. and internationally. Renewing our PKF relationship will also help to open doors for us.”

Frazier & Deeter has more than 300 professionals in five offices in Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Pennsylvania. It delivers a range of tax, assurance, accounting and advisory services, and launched one of the largest CPA-based wealth management firms, SignatureFD, in 1998. It also introduced FD Fund Administration, a subsidiary firm that provides outsourced fund administration services, and FD Real Asset Advisors, a firm that assists with real estate and other project financing.

John Sim, CEO of PKF International, says, “As one of the fastest-growing, highly respected accounting firms in the U.S., they are just the type of firm we wanted as our Southeast regional anchor practice. Seth McDaniel, Sean Lager and Bill Godshall have made significant contributions to the PKF network over the years and we look forward to that continuing.”

PKF has 15 offices in the U.S. “This is a cornerstone in our quest to restructure our North American presence, which is an important part of our global strategy to strengthen our ability to provide solutions to countless clients of PKF members around the globe,” says Sebastian Wohldorf, chairman of PKF International.
