WNDE Named a Top Accounting Firm by the OC Business Journal
For the second consecutive year, White Nelson Diehl Evans LLP (WNDE) has been ranked as one of the top ten largest accounting firms in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal.
“It is a big honor to once again appear among the top firms on the annual OCBJ accounting list,” said Paul Treinen WNDE’s managing partner. “Being recognized as a leading Orange County firm speaks volumes about both the quality of our external services and the internal health of our organization.”
The firm’s services were fairly evenly split between audit and tax related services, with 40% of its work being audit-related over the past year, and 50% tax. Advisory services represented 10% of the firm’s work effort. WNDE’s primary clients are privately held companies in the manufacturing, distribution, business and professional services, retail, and financial services sectors, along with nonprofit and government entities and entrepreneurial and high net worth individuals.
Statistics included with the list show that WNDE had a significant increase in Orange County CPAs over the past year. Currently, WNDE employs 78 OC CPAs—an increase of 8% since last year. The firm has also enjoyed a general increase in employment across the board, with a 3% rise in firmwide employees and a 2% rise in OC employees, in particular. Paul noted that “this steady growth is a mark of good things happening at WNDE.” He added, “We are very proud of the group of hardworking, team-oriented professionals that we’ve assembled.”
