Perry Kessler has been admitted as a partner at RyanSharkey of Reston, Va., (FY15 net revenue of $8.4 million).

In his new role, Kessler will continue to grow the firm’s government contracting niche. Kessler was promoted from his role as assurance director, where he has served as a critical member of RyanSharkey’s assurance group. In this role, Kessler provided assurance and business advisory services to a variety of government contracting and technology firms.

“Compliance and regulatory changes throughout 2017 will drive the need for experts to help our clients in government contracting and other niches navigate complex landscapes,” says MP Edward Ryan. “Perry will be instrumental in accelerating the growth of our assurance services, particularly to our government contracting services clients.”

Prior to joining RyanSharkey in 2016, Kessler spent nearly six years at Argy, Wiltse & Robinson, (acquired by BDO in 2012), first as a senior associate, then as an assurance manager. He began his career as an associate at KPMG LLP.

Kessler’s advisory specialties include design and implementation of audit procedures that are efficient and focused on adding value to government contractors; attest and advisory services to government contractors; policy and procedure reviews; government contract compliance; accounting system reviews; indirect rate structure review; merger and acquisition accounting; and due diligence engagements.
