PORTLAND, OR – Dave Sullivan, Director of Business Development at Perkins and Company, Portland’s largest local public accounting firm, has been named a shareholder of the firm. Mr. Sullivan is the first non-accountant owner in the firm’s 21 year history.
Mr. Sullivan joined the firm in 2000. “Dave has been an invaluable resource to our firm over the past six years. He has been instrumental in helping Perkins & Company double its revenue during that time. In addition, Dave has become well-known in the community which also contributes to the awareness and growth of the firm.”
This is another in a long history of innovative, entrepreneurial moves for Perkins & Company. No other local or regional accounting firms count a non-accountant among the ownership. Perkins & Company was also one of the first firms to employ a full-time business development director.
Prior to joining Perkins & Company, Mr. Sullivan held various management, marketing, and business development positions including ten years in the creative services and film/video industry. He also spent seven years as a television personality and news anchor.
Perkins & Company was established in 1986 and is the anchor firm for Perkins Group, which includes Perkins Consulting, LLC, Pacific Investment Advisors, LLC. Perkins Group employs more than 100 individuals in a single Portland office.
