Moss Adams Combines with Sousa & Weber
The firm expands its presence in Southern California.
SEATTLE, June 22, 2022—Moss Adams, one of the largest accounting, consulting and wealth management firms in the nation, announced it has agreed to combine with Sousa & Weber, a public accounting, tax and business advisory firm located in Los Angeles, Calif. Effective August 1, 2022, eight professionals from Sousa & Weber, including its two founding partners, will join Moss Adams.
This combination was particularly appealing to both firms due to their shared depth of technical industry expertise, caliber of talented professionals and focus on client-centric service for middle-market businesses. Sousa & Weber has an excellent reputation in the Southern California region coupled with high-quality relationships across aerospace and defense, government contractors, real estate and private clients.
“Ken and I are pleased to partner with a firm that shares similar values and an unwavering commitment to serving clients from client engagement to business success,” said Rich Weber, partner, Sousa & Weber. “By aligning with Moss Adams, we’ll strengthen our focus on the things that matter to our clients while continuing to provide expanded business advisory capabilities.”
“Rich and I took our time looking for the right fit for our employees and clients. It was important to both of us to find a firm that values and empowers employees to thrive long-term,” said Ken Sousa, partner, Sousa & Weber. “This move allows us to grow in new ways and become a part of a national team that provides unique insights to clients for business growth and success.”
“For over 15 years, Sousa & Weber has provided tax planning and consulting expertise for middle-market clients and family businesses during periods of uncertainty,” said Roger Weninger, regional managing partner of Southern California and Phoenix at Moss Adams. “Southern California continues to lead in many key industries and is home to two significant industries that are poised for future growth: aerospace and defense and real estate.”
“Moss Adams has seen solid growth in Southern California and across our key markets. We continue to evaluate areas of focus where our clients need and want us to be,” said Eric Miles, chairman and CEO, Moss Adams. “This combination, and the addition of their talented professionals, falls in line with that core strategy. We’re pleased to have the Sousa & Weber team become a part of our team here at Moss Adams.”
Moss Adams will welcome the Sousa & Weber team to its El Segundo office, with plans to continue to grow its presence and workforce in Southern California.
