Apex CPAs & Consultants Acquires Morrison & Associates

Apex CPAs & Consultants of St. Charles, Ill., acquired Morrison & Associates also of St. Charles. Morrison’s wealth management division will remain independent.

“Our two companies have similar mindsets. Clients come first,” says James Chakires, founder and MP of Apex. “Our combined client base will benefit from the additional expertise, from business advisory, tax consulting and accounting to retirement and succession planning and more. We are professional problem solvers and are relentlessly committed to our client’s success.”

“They will still work with their existing teams. We now will be able to provide additional accounting, tax and advisory services from a single firm that understands individual tax clients as well as emerging businesses poised for growth,” says Chakires.

William Morrison Jr., who founded Morrison & Associates in 1979, will be admitted as partner at Apex.

“Jim and I have known each other for many years, and we run in the same circles in St. Charles and Kane County. We strive to be the best business stewards for our clients, and we will continue to do that because it is our business to see our clients prosper,” says Morrison.
