RKL LLP is expanding its presence in the Philadelphia area.
The Central Pennsylvania accounting and business consulting firm said Tuesday it has opened an office in Exton, a suburb about 35 miles outside of Philadelphia.
“RKL’s new Exton location will allow us to more comprehensively serve our growing client base in the greater Philadelphia region and establish new relationships within the local business community,” Edward W. Monborne, RKL’s CEO, said in a statement.
RKL partner Barry M. Pelagatti will manage operations for the Exton office, in addition to his leadership of the firm’s financial services industry group.
RKL is leasing a newly constructed 10,000-square-foot office in the Exton Corporate Center, a spokeswoman for the company said. It provides space for up to 90 professionals from across the firm’s various disciplines, including assurance, tax, risk management, and financial and management consulting.
The Exton location builds upon RKL’s existing foothold in the region. In 2016 RKL acquired risk management firm GTM Risk Management, based in Radnor, near Exton.
The Radnor office has closed, and its employees are now working from the Exton office, a spokeswoman for the company said.
Exton represents the seventh Pennsylvania location for RKL’s public accounting, business consulting and investment banking entities, which have operations in Lancaster, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, Reading, York and Allentown.
With 400 employees, the Manheim Township-based firm serves clients across the country.
