The vision for Wilke began as many accounting firms often do: around a kitchen table with a young family trying to make the best decisions for their future.
Co-Managing Partner David Wilke and his wife had a young child when he founded the Firm in 1998. He wanted more flexibility and work-life balance than a traditional public accounting career could offer, which became the Firm's foundation.
Wilke started with two clients and has grown to more than 4,000 today – and counting!
Our mission from the beginning has been to provide an innovative framework of support for our team members to meet them where they are in their life journey, respecting individual goals and applying their entrepreneurial mindset to deliver superior client service.
Wilke went above and beyond as part of traditional accounting and tax engagements long before it was a trend; it’s just been our way of doing business since the beginning.
