We read with great interest your February 2010 article, “Into the Big Leagues.” Louisville businesses are, indeed, fortunate to have a fine firm such as Mountjoy Chilton Medley LLP resident in our city. My firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, recognizes the vital role accounting firms play in helping businesses large and small solve their problems. In today’s economy, more than ever, it is critical that businesses have a solid, steady advisor to turn to, and we salute The Lane Report for showcasing the profession and for helping readers understand the critical nature of the services the accounting profession provides.
We do, however, take exception to one comment in the article implying that PwC has “retreated from many second-tier cities like Louisville.” With over 260 people serving Kentucky-based clients from our Louisville, Lexington and Cincinnati offices, we have the breadth of resources needed to serve companies on the move. PwC has been serving Kentucky businesses with distinction for over 80 years. We audit over 70 percent of Kentucky’s Fortune 1000 public company revenues. We have a legacy in Kentucky of committed service and we intend to be there for years to come.
