RINA? Who is RINA?
“RINA accountancy corporation” is a regional full-service accounting and consulting firm with offices in San Francisco, Oakland and Walnut Creek, California as well as Bellingham, Washington. RINA serves closely-held businesses and their owners, high-net-worth individuals and families, and many not-for-profit organizations and private foundations.
Sterck Kulik O’Neill became a part of the RINA team on January 1st 2018. Our office remains on Post Street in San Francisco and all Sterck Kulik O’Neill team members were asked to join the RINA firm.
Sterck Kulik O’Neill merged with RINA to allow SKO’s partners – Charles and Geoffrey – to spend more time with clients and less time on administration and overhead duties. With the addition of SKO’s team, RINA now has approximately 100 Certified Public accountants and paraprofessionals.
Charles and Geoff have been familiar with RINA for many years and have long admired RINA’s organization. The firms share the same professional focus: businesses and their owners. They also place the same importance on employee well-being and development.
Charles and Geoffrey will be part of the RINA Sterck Kulik O’Neill management team.
What will change for our clients?
We believe that our team, especially our senior team members, will have more time to focus on our clients and their needs. We will also tap into RINA’s team for areas they have more experience than we have.
We hope you’ll see increased responsiveness, proactive suggestions, consulting recommendations, and generally better service from your accountants!
Letterheads, invoices, and other logos will gradually introduce the RINA name.
What we don’t expect to change is our focus on you and your financial success.
