Press release submitted on behalf of Wipfli (Harbour Results).

Harbour Results, Inc. has entered into a transaction with Wipfli LLP, a top 20 national advisory and accounting firm, under which Wipfli has acquired the assets of Harbour Results. Fourteen Harbour Results associates have joined Wipfli.

Wipfli has been serving the manufacturing industry for more than 90 years. Harbour Results and Wipfli share a passion for revitalizing the manufacturing industry with innovative, yet practical, solutions and with a commitment to long-term client relationships.

“Wipfli’s culture of service and innovation aligns well with Harbour Results’ passion for revitalizing the manufacturing industry,” said Laurie Harbour, president and CEO. “Just like Wipfli, we are dedicated to giving 100% to our clients and associates. Together, we’ll be able to have a bigger impact on the manufacturing industry.”

Combined with Wipfli’s data and strategy team, the united teams will bring additional value to the manufacturing clients they both serve.

The Harbour Results team will bring to Wipfli its proprietary benchmarking service, which delivers data that drives strategy and operations for manufacturers. With Wipfli’s strong technology team, clients will have access to expanded services and a broader suite of advisory and integrated solutions.

“Harbour Results’ expertise and track record in benchmarking and forecasting will help us provide more insights and perspectives to our clients,” said Brian Blaha, Wipfli’s growth leader. “Today’s modern market is increasingly complex. Together, we’ll be able to cut through the chaos and deliver targeted strategies and solutions.”

Kurt Gresens, managing partner of Wipfli, says the May 1 deal furthers Wipfli’s strategic growth priorities.

“We’re looking forward to expanding our client base — and services — in manufacturing,” he said. “We’re also excited to deepen Wipfli’s ties in Michigan. The state’s strong business climate and manufacturing foundation make it an exciting geographic area for us to expand in.”
