12/1/2020 – CICPAC member firm, Albuquerque-based Atkinson & Co., has joined national professional services firm CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen LLP), as of December 1, 2020.

“We’re excited to continue to serve clients as CLA,” said Henry South, Atkinson & Co. managing partner. “We have always believed that serving our clients is an opportunity to know them better. And, when we know clients better, we can align our services to contribute to their growth and profitability.”

As one of the largest New Mexico-owned public accounting and consulting firms serving the Southwest since 1970, Atkinson & Co. has earned a reputation for quality, reliability, and personal service. The firm has a long-standing tradition of community involvement. Atkinson & Co. earned distinction for its workplace policies by Family Friendly New Mexico, a statewide project developed to recognize companies that have adopted policies that give New Mexico businesses an edge in recruiting and retaining the best employees.

“I see a great fit between our firms,” said Georgie Ortiz, managing principal of CLA’s New Mexico office. “By blending our capabilities, we continue to strengthen our commitment to create opportunities for our clients and for our people.”

As one of the nation’s leading professional services firms, CLA has retained the agility to serve clients of all sizes and in all locations, while at the same time bringing an uncommon depth of capabilities, all in one place.

The nearly 50 former Atkinson & Co. team members will continue to serve clients locally and nationally from Albuquerque, increasing CLA’s New Mexico team to more than 100 people.
