Moss Adams, one of the top 15 largest public accounting firms in the United States, said on Aug. 4 that it agreed to combine with Alexicon, a niche consulting firm specializing in rural telecommunications with offices located in Colorado Springs, CO, and Tulsa, OK.
The Alexicon team, including two principals, Doug Kitch and Rob Strait, along with 10 employees, will join Moss Adams, effective Sept. 1, 2022.
“We’ve worked with Moss Adams through the years and have been impressed with their commitment to serving clients with efficient, innovative solutions. Joining Moss Adams enhances our team with broader knowledge and expanded resources for our clients,” said Kitch. “We’re excited to bring our perspective, experience and knowledge to Moss Adams. Together, we create a better experience for clients.”
“Doug and I felt aligning with Moss Adams was a strategic next step for our firm growth,” said Strait. “Our industry has evolved dramatically in the past decade, and together our firms will be well-equipped to handle the increasing complexity of services our clients require. We’ve always viewed Moss Adams as a formidable and respected competitor in our industry. Now, we’re able to combine our companies’ strengths and move forward as one team.”
Both teams are similar in their industry specialization, people-first culture, and client centric-advisory focus. Since 2002, Alexicon has served clients in rural telecommunications by providing specialized industry solutions to navigate a highly regulated, complex industry sector. Alexicon has also established a set of niche consulting services across rural telecommunications and built strong advocacy relationships with leading associations.
“We’re excited to welcome Doug, Rob and their talented team to Moss Adams,” said Clay Sturgis, leader of the Communications & Media Practice at Moss Adams. “Through the years, Alexicon has provided an exceptional client experience in the rural telecommunications space with insights for clients to navigate a complex set of regulatory hierarchy. We look forward to integrating our teams and expanding our telecommunications consulting platform together.”
“For the past 10 years, Moss Adams has seen organic growth in our Communications & Media Practice. Enhancing our service capacity is critical as we look at new avenues for continued growth and adding to our client service value,” said Eric Miles, chairman and CEO, Moss Adams. “Adding the Alexicon team strengthens that client service value with expanded expertise to meet client needs across the industry spectrum.”
The Alexicon team will remain based in Colorado Springs and Tulsa, working with professionals across the national Communications & Media Practice at Moss Adams.
