Albuquerque, 15 January, 2021 – REDW LLC, one of the Southwest’s 10 largest certified public accounting and business consulting firms, announced today that Scottsdale-based CPA Global Tax & Accounting PLLC (CPA Global Tax) has joined with REDW effective January 15, 2021. The combined firm will operate under the REDW company name.

As part of the agreement, Pallav Acharya, owner of CPA Global Tax, will join REDW as a Principal in the firm’s Phoenix office. In addition, Desylina Christensen, who was a tax professional with the Acharya firm, will join REDW as a Tax Senior Accountant in the same office.

“Our decision to add the international tax expertise of Pallav and his team to REDW is part of our overall continued strategic expansion,” said Steve Cogan, REDW Managing Principal. “We recognize that rapid globalization is creating great opportunities, but also a challenging tax environment as businesses continue to trade or expand their operations around the world. This is especially relevant as we look ahead to a busy 2021 when the new Federal and State Administrations are expected to bring about new tax policies. We are now even better positioned to proactively advise clients on cross-border tax matters.”

Christina Roderick, REDW Principal and Tax Practice Leader, added: “We have been providing international tax services for many years, but this joining of forces allows REDW to expand our capabilities in this specialized area to even more effectively serve U.S. clients internationally, as well as international clients in this country. We’re thrilled to welcome someone of the caliber of Pallav. Adding his extensive expertise to our firm marks a significant milestone for our practice and our clients as we recognize that today’s business demands require tax advisors who are fully fluent in the issues at play.”
