PKF Mack will become Western Australia’s 16th largest accounting firm after merging with Pike Skinner, although the financial details of the arrangement have not been released.

The combined group will continue to operate under the PKF Mack masthead, while Pike Skinner’s financial services division will combine with PKF’s advisory arm but retain the Pike Skinner Financial Services name.

 “Servicing the same core market as ourselves the merger of the two teams strengthens the depth, knowledge and capability of both practices and positions the merged firm to continue to meet the growing needs of our client base,” PKF managing partner Tony Maclean said.

“The merger will enable both firms to capitalise on their shared networks, common values and diverse strengths to deliver exciting growth opportunities for both staff and clients.”

The merged firm will have a combined total of 50 accountants, 11 of which will be partners, and 62 staff, with about two thirds coming from PKF Mack.

The combined firm will be WA’s 16th largest accounting firm, according to BNiQ data.

Pike Skinner founders Dean Pike and Paul Skinner, and financial services leader Tony Munday, will remain with the merged group.

“I will be joined by Dean in taking on joint managing partner responsibilities in the newly merged firm,” Mr Maclean said.

PKF has two member firms in Perth - PKF Mack and PKF Lawlers.
