"There are so many points of connection between Mueller Prost and Wipfli, it would be hard to say what I'm most excited about,” said Kurt Gresens, Wipfli managing partner. “While it was their entrepreneurial spirit that brought us together, our strong industry and services synergies and longstanding cultural connections between our teams will allow us, together, to bring even more value to the clients we serve and enhance our growth. We look forward to expanding Wipfli’s presence into Missouri and Southern California while adding to our talent base in India."

The firm’s services are focused on closely held businesses and organizations in the healthcare, manufacturing and distribution, nonprofit and real estate and construction industries.
“We are excited to join the Wipfli team. We are grateful to our clients and our people who have helped us become who we are today — and we look forward to this next step in serving our clients in an even greater capacity together,” said Doug Mueller, Mueller Prost co-founder and president. “Over the years, we have placed great emphasis on our culture and family values.
