MCM CPAs & Advisors adds Kramer Consulting

MCM CPAs & Advisors, a Top 100 Firm based in Louisville, Kentucky, has added the team of Kramer Consulting Inc., a local provider of outsourced IT consulting services, to form a new affiliate, MCM Kramer Technology Solutions, effective Oct. 1, 2018.

MCM CPAs & Advisors will continue offering tax, assurance, accounting and consulting services to clients in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and other parts of the country.

Financial terms were not disclosed. MCM, , formerly known as Mountjoy Chilton Medley, ranked 78th on Accounting Today’s 2018 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $53.91 million in annual revenue. MCM has more than 350 employees and 49 partners, while Kramer has two partners and 21 other employees.

MCM’s Risk Advisory Services Team has been offering cybersecurity and IT risk services for a number of years, but the new MCM Kramer Technology Solutions unit will be able to give clients more types of technology solutions. Kramer has been offering managed IT, cloud computing, security, data, hardware and software services since 1989.

“As MCM has developed relationships with our clients that go beyond traditional tax and assurance offerings, it has become increasingly clear that IT consulting and strategic, state-of-the-art technology solutions are the answer to many of the most pressing 21st century business challenges,” said MCM Managing Partner Diane Medley in a statement. “The MCM Kramer partnership will allow us to continue raising the bar for our clients.”

MCM Kramer will operate from KCI’s existing offices in Crestwood, Kentucky, near Louisville. KCI is currently the 13th biggest IT consulting firm in the Louisville area. It is currently led by President Jim Kramer and Vice President Nate Deskins, both of whom will now be leading MCM Kramer.

“We’re thrilled about this partnership,” Kramer said in a statement. “We have decided to join with MCM because it will empower our team with more resources and capabilities, especially those within synergistic fields like risk advisory and compliance, which are becoming more important than ever for the businesses we serve.”
