The Whitlock Company, a full-service accounting firm, announced it is expanding in Kansas City, Missouri. The expansion represents more than $1.2 million in investment, and is expected to bring more than 40 new jobs to the region.
“I spoke with the leaders of The Whitlock Company,” said Gov. Eric Greitens. “They play an important role in providing services to our growing business community. The message is getting out there that Missouri is open for business and that our state will fight for every job to make sure hardworking Missourians have more opportunities.”
The Whitlock Company is headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, and was recently ranked among one of the regions top employers. The expansion comes after The Whitlock Company acquired Kansas-based RPA Consulting.
“All of us at The Whitlock Company and former RPA Consulting are excited to join forces,” The Whitlock Company said in a statement. “The single, stronger practice that will result from this acquisition will better position us to assist community banks across the country. And we look forward to our new location in Missouri on Ward Parkway.”
The company said they chose to expand in Kansas City due to area’s growing technology scene and professional business community.
