Trio of New Members for DFK USA

Three firms have joined DFK USA, taking the national group’s membership to 27.

The new members are Lauterbach & Amen, Reynolds + Rowella and Ridout Barrett.

Lauterbach & Amen is a mid-sized public accounting firm established in 1997 in Napervillle, Ill., by partners Sherry Lauterbach and Ron Amen. The firm’s foundation is in the governmental sector, and over the years, it has extended client relationships to other entities outside of government, providing accounting, compilation, assurance, actuary and consulting services.

Ridgefield, Conn.-based Reynolds + Rowella, also has an office in New Canaan, Conn. It was founded in 1985 as a result of the merger of the CPA practices of Tom Reynolds and Frank Rowella. The firm provides consulting, tax and assurance services and acts for businesses across all industries.

Ridout Barrett, with offices in San Antonio and Austin, Texas, founded in 1986, provides professional accounting, tax and business advisory services to businesses of all sizes and across a range of sectors.

Harriet Greenberg, president of DFK USA and deputy president of DFK International, says that 2018 has been a time of growth for DFK International. “The addition of Ridout Barrett and Reynolds + Rowella provide an additional tax-centric layer to the community, while Lauterbach & Amen bring a targeted audit-based view with a specialized focus in government auditing.”

As deputy president of DFK International, Harriet’s vision is to grow membership both in the U.S. and internationally, and she hopes this latest recruitment will act as a springboard for attracting more firms to DFK USA.

“We are doing some really amazing things in DFK USA in collaboration with DFK International. As we continue to execute our powerful initiatives, I’m confident that our members will grow across the nation in major cities,” she says.
