Promotion Watch ’21: Wipfli Adds 19 New Partners and Principals

The other night I was watching the WGN Evening News when Wipfli partner Geoff Harlow came on to talk about the Extended Child Tax Credit. You can see his guest appearance below if you’re so inclined:

But Harlow’s appearance helped me remember something else: I had the names of the newest class of do-gooders who recently joined Harlow in the partnership at Wipfli.

The class of 2021—15 new partners and four new principals—is larger than last year’s class of nine new partners and three new principals.

Here are the 11 men and eight women who now get a seat at the big kids’ table:

  • Steven Barnes, Principal, Construction and Real Estate, Wisconsin
  • Jessica Barnas, Partner, Nonprofit and Government, Illinois
  • Ryan Barrow, Partner, Financial Services, Georgia
  • Jason Beiswenger, Partner, Private Client, New Hampshire
  • Melissa Blaser, Partner, Financial Services, Illinois
  • Joshua Boyle, Partner, Healthcare, Wisconsin
  • Dan Fabich, Partner, Manufacturing and Distribution, Wisconsin
  • Barb Hall, Partner, Audit and Accounting, Missouri
  • Adam Hill, Partner, Audit and Accounting, Missouri
  • Lisa Hrinik, Partner, Nonprofit and Government, Colorado
  • Dannielle Lewis, Partner, Construction and Real Estate, Minnesota
  • Megan Model, Partner, Construction and Real Estate, Montana
  • Brent Neitz, Principal, Nonprofit and Government, Virginia
  • Curt Olson, Partner, Construction and Real Estate, Colorado
  • Kurt Peterson, Partner, Nonprofit and Government, Illinois
  • Andrew Potasek, Principal, Nonprofit and Government, Wisconsin
  • Craig Schessler, Partner, Manufacturing and Distribution, Wisconsin
  • Natalie Tocco, Partner, Tax, Missouri
  • Shelly Worrel, Principal, Manufacturing and Distribution, Minnesota

Congrats to the class of 2021 at Wipfli!
