JANUARY 27, 2024

I am pleased to announce our merger with Kuhn & Company, CPAs. We officially merged our practices on January 1, 2024. Our combined firm will operate as Kuhn & Company, CPAs.

After beginning my career at Ernst & Whinney (now Young) , I joined the firm of Alexander X. Kuhn & Co in 1989 and worked with the predecessors of Kuhn & Company.

In 1997 the firm was divided resulting in what is now AXK, PLLC and Kuhn & Company. Now in its 4th generation, Kuhn & Company shares the same values we do. After working together on a few joint client projects over the last couple of years, we are merging. We are confident that together we will continue the tradition we have of excellent service, deep expertise, and an environment that best serves our clients and associates.

There are several things that I want to point out that will not change:

    • You will continue to work with the same people in our firm that you have had in the past and I will continue to be the Partner that you deal with. All our people are joining us.
    • The services we have provided in the past will continue.
    • Our contact information will not change, including our office location in Wheaton, the phone numbers and email addresses.
    • We will also have an office location at the current Kuhn & Company office at 8770 W. Bryn Mawr Ave in Chicago if that is a more convenient location for you.

If you have any questions about this exciting news and what it will mean for you, please contact us at any time. We look forward to introducing you to our new partners and associates.

We are grateful to you for the trust you have placed in us over the years and very appreciative of your loyalty and friendship . We look forward to continuing our work together and are confident that our new affiliation will serve us all well.
