Fresno-area agricultural business owners will have another accounting option when Morse Wittwer Sampson merges with Moss Adams at the end of June.
Morse Wittwer Sampson, a local accounting company specializing in agricultural business, will be combined with Moss Adams, a larger accounting and business consulting firm with dozens of locations around the U.S.
A trio of Fresno accountants founded Morse Wittwer Sampson in 2008, and the company has grown to 18 employees. That number is expected to grow once Moss Adams is integrated, a Moss Adams statement said.
Morse Wittwer Sampson founding partner Christopher Morse will lead the Fresno location once the merger is completeon June 30.
“This combination with Moss Adams felt like a natural step in the evolution of our firm,” Morse said.
The “combination” is meant to strengthen Moss Adams in the agriculture and food production sector, bringing it closer to the businesses in need of accounting and consulting services. It will also allow Morse Wittwer Sampson to grow and work with the Moss Adams location in Sacramento to reach a larger clientele.
With this merger, Moss Adams adds Fresno to its 27 existing locations on the West Coast and joins the agricultural hotspot in Central California.
