In spring 2013, the Santa Clara office of Moss Adams will migrate to the current Mohler Nixon office in Campbell, and the San Francisco office of Mohler Nixon will combine with the Moss Adams office there. All Mohler Nixon partners and substantially all of its employees are expected to join Moss Adams.
Founded in 1986, Mohler Nixon has 25 partners and more than 160 personnel, and offers a wide range of corporate and individual tax, accounting, audit, internal control and consulting services to public and private businesses of all sizes, as well as to individuals. In addition, it claims to conduct more employee benefit plan audits annually than any other firm in the Bay Area. It ranked No. 94 on Accounting Today’s 2012 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $32.9 million in net revenue, while Moss Adams ranked No. 11, with $323 million.
Vidlock will serve as partner-in-charge of the newly combined Campbell office, and manage operations in the Silicon Valley market.
