Firm to grow financial services consulting capacity

SEATTLE, November 20, 2015—Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest accounting and business consulting firms in the nation, today announced it has agreed to combine with the Spokane, Wash.–based financial services consulting firm Contineo. Effective January 1, 2016, the combination will expand the firm’s offerings to the financial services industry.

“We’ve had a good relationship with Contineo for a number of years, and it has a strong client base and similar company values,” said Jeff Green, national practice leader for the financial services practice at Moss Adams. “This combination is a great opportunity to increase our capacity to serve financial services clients.”

A boutique firm founded in 1999, Contineo has grown to provide professional services to hundreds of companies in 27 states across the country. The firm provides IT security, regulatory compliance, and internal audit services to financial services organizations. Contineo also currently offers outsourced IT services, which Moss Adams will not be absorbing.

In January, Contineo’s 14 professionals will join Moss Adams in the firm’s Spokane office and through remote hubs in Seattle, Dallas, and Meadview, Ariz. Craig Sanders, president and CEO of Contineo, will join Moss Adams as a partner, continuing his work with clients as well as working with leadership on further growth opportunities.

“Joining with Moss Adams felt like a natural step in our growth strategy,” said Craig Sanders. “Our firms share the same commitment to client service as well as similar goals and ideals. We’re excited to begin this new stage and be part of one of the leaders in the consulting and financial services industry.”
