John Gosch has joined Prager Metis International LLC as partner.

One of Gosch’s main priorities will be to grow the newly merged firm throughout Los Angeles and the Silicon Valley area. (For a brief rundown of the union see: Prager & Fenton, Metis Group Merge.)

Gosch will work out of the Los Angeles office where he will provide business consulting and financial planning services to both domestic and international businesses and individuals.

“Gosch understands international business by having lived and worked abroad,” Prager Metis managing partner Glenn Friedman said in a statement. “Fluent in German and French, he has traveled overseas extensively and is an expert on U.S. and international tax issues.”

Given his experience with international tax matters Gosch will continue to make annual trips to Europe, offering presentations and lectures throughout several European countries including Germany and France.

Gosch has 30 years of experience in the accounting profession and serves clients in the international, technology, manufacturing, digital media, venture backed companies and consumer products areas.

Prior to starting his public practice in 1999, Gosch served as group and division controller for a Fortune 500 company both domestically and overseas. He was also a CFO with emerging companies and participated in the IPO of advanced technology firms. Gosch began his career with Ernst & Young.

He’s a licensed CPA in California and New York and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Lehigh University and a Master’s Degree in Accounting from Pennsylvania State University.
