Porte Brown LLC (http://www.PorteBrown.com), a Chicago area CPA firm providing accounting, audit, tax preparation, and technology services, has announced the acquisition of Arlington Heights-based accounting firm Ulbrich & Company. The move reflects Porte Brown’s fourth acquisition in just 4 years.
Chris Zdunich of Porte Brown (http://www.portebrown.com) says the acquisition is part of its long-term strategic growth plan. "We've been in business since 1946 and have built a reputation as one of the best, most respected CPA firms in the Chicago area. Our goal is to become the dominant regional accounting service provider to our target markets, by specialty and industry.” Zdunich continues, “Ulbrich & Company's practice and client base are a perfect fit for us. The acquisition enhances Porte Brown’s existing accounting, tax, 1040 and wealth management practices."

Norman H. Ulbrich, managing partner of Ulbrich & Company, points out the advantages the merger brings to its staff and clients. "We've always held Porte Brown in high regard. By becoming part of their organization, we can now provide our clients with a broader range of in-house expertise and specialized knowledge.
