Mueller and Co., LLP hosted four other US-based CPA firms from Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and four firms from Germany for German US Accounting and Tax Summit. The five US firms’ affiliation is through CPAmerica International, an association of independently owned and managed CPA and consulting firms in the US.  The four German firm’s affiliation is through Crowe Horwath International, of which CPAmerica is a member.

The three-day Summit was the result of over 18 months of discussions of how to best address the needs of the growing multinational, German-owned companies who are investing in subsidiaries in the Eastern United States.

The Summit ended with a site visit to a German automotive manufacturing supplier and then a lunch at Mueller’s private dining room in their worldwide headquarters with several local German companies, and dignitaries from Elgin’s Chamber of Commerce, Mayor’s office, and its Economic Development group.
