Celebrating 20 Years in Pittsburgh

We are celebrating 20 years of business this month!

It’s a Win-Win: Celebrating 20 Years in Pittsburgh

With the City of Pittsburgh as our backdrop, the team from Wilke & Associates enjoyed a few hours out of the office to take in a ball game this August 20.  And although our favorite baseball team fell 0 – 1, we believe the day was a Win-Win.

We could not have come this far without our great clients and our team that serves them. Twenty years ago in Carnegie, PA in August of 1998, Wilke & Associates started with a handful of clients helping with tax preparation, tax planning, and bookkeeping. Now two decades later in 2018, our firm has grown to over 45 team members (and still growing), 2500 clients and are serving small to medium-sized businesses locally and around the world. We have grown from simple tax preparation to serving clients in audit & assurance, advisory & planning, accounting & tax, and mergers & acquisitions services. This growth forced us to relocate to Mount Lebanon in the Fall of 2016 with our own space that has become the hub of our culture!

Wilke & Associates has come to be recognized as one of the most highly regarded CPA firms in the Western Pennsylvania region. We have been recognized with numerous accolades… but it is our dedicated team members — many here for more than 5 years that should be congratulated! Every day offers a new opportunity for individual and professional growth, and our team has not only captured the essence of being entrepreneurs, they each independently truly are entrepreneurs building their client relationships.

We believe wholeheartedly in work-life – balance as our culture allows for flexible schedules that not only improve productivity but relationships. We absolutely could not celebrate 20 years of business without our employees who serve our clients.

We help our clients go beyond the numbers. At Wilke & Associates, Tax, Audit, and Consulting are much more than transcribing numbers into a form or a spreadsheet. We consider lifestyle, personal financial goals, business objectives, investment and/or divestment in helping create a plan and budget. Informed clients, leads to better decisions, which lead to goals achieved!

We look forward to the next 20 years!

Thank you from
