Sitzberger & Co. Acquires Bristol & Co.

Brookfield, Wis.-based Sitzberger & Co. acquired Bristol & Co. of Milwaukee, according to BizTimes. Don Bristol will join Sitzberger & Co. as a principal. Bristol has seven employees, six of whom are joining Sitzberger. They will continue to work out of the Glendale office.

“We’re going to keep that office open and we’re going to invest in that side of town,” says Bristol. “I know a lot of CPAs over there and they would join us if we had an office over there.”

“Anybody that can fog a mirror we want to buy,” says Fred Sitzberger, founder and CEO. “What we do is we just go through the list and we target everybody. If one comes up, we have the financial resources. We’ve purchased 15 in the last 15 years or so, so we know how to do it.”

The company moved into a new headquarters in December to accommodate its growth.

“We’re excited to bring Don Bristol and his team on board and to expand our presence to Milwaukee’s north shore,” says Sitzberger. “Don’s been in practice for decades, so we welcome his experience and are excited to provide him support during this upcoming busy season and beyond. His work deciphering how the new tax law affects businesses and individuals is exceptional.”
