McKonly & Asbury is pleased to announce that Kurt M. Trimarchi, current Managing Partner of McKonly & Asbury, will be joined by Michael D. Hoffner in the Managing Partner role as of January 1, 2020. Mike has been a valued member of the McKonly & Asbury team for nearly 15 years and this recognition comes from his continued role on the firm’s Executive Committee as well as his many years of dedicated service to the success of the firm.
This new paradigm in leadership comes off the heels of recent firm growth in 2019, both internally as well as within the firm’s affiliated companies. In January 2019, McKonly & Asbury acquired a third office in Bloomsburg, PA, expanding geographic reach and adding to the team of talented individuals to support future growth. The additional office location also enriched the firm’s expertise in audit, tax compliance, and back-office consulting as well as allowed for additional time and resources to devote to specialty services and industry niches.
Firm growth continued in 2019 with an ownership stake in Dale Carnegie Mid-Atlantic. As an owner, McKonly & Asbury offers an extension of services to clients and expands the depth and breadth of their expertise in the areas of leadership, team building, and people development while broadening their footprint into the Maryland, Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, and West Virginia marketplaces.
During 2019, McKonly & Asbury’s affiliate, Bridgeford Trust Company – an independent, full service trust company with South Dakota Trust powers – saw exponential growth as it continues to provide industry leading progressive fiduciary services to domestic and international families across the country and around the world.
Collectively, Kurt and Mike will be responsible for firm strategy and growth, client engagement, team development, corporate culture, and community presence. In addition to this, enhancing the Managing Partner role allows them to continue to use their strengths to move the firm forward, while still providing the superior services that clients have come to rely on in their individual areas of expertise.
Kurt M. Trimarchi, CPA, CM&AA, joined McKonly & Asbury in 2003 and became Managing Partner in 2015. Within this role, he has been leading the firm with his extensive experience in serving family businesses and providing domestic and international tax services. In addition to family businesses, Kurt has developed expertise in serving clients in our Manufacturing and Retail industries.
“I am thrilled to have Mike recognized for his contribution to the firm,” said Kurt M. Trimarchi, Managing Partner at McKonly & Asbury. “He has been a key leader since the day he joined the firm and instrumental in assisting my role in leading the firm, even before I was named Managing Partner. This announcement is a mere formality of the role he has already been performing. More importantly, what it means to our firm and our clients, is that we will continue to focus on controlled growth and exceptional client service. As a partner group, we are so excited about our future and Mike’s contribution to that end.”
Michael D. Hoffner, CPA, joined McKonly & Asbury in 2005 and has developed a well-known expertise in assurance services and in serving our growing industries including Service Organizations (SOC), Manufacturing, Construction and Engineering, and Technology.
“Under Kurt’s leadership, McKonly & Asbury has continued to build on the foundation laid by his predecessors, and has strategically invested in ways that we believe allow us to enhance the way we serve the marketplace,” said Michael D. Hoffner, Managing Partner at McKonly & Asbury. “I am excited about the opportunity to join Kurt in leading the firm, and leveraging our collective strengths as we further integrate our recent acquisitions and position the firm for the future. Bifurcating the role will allow us to collectively meet the administrative needs of the firm, invest further in the development of our team, serve our dynamic and growing client base, and seek out additional opportunities for growth.”
