Vrakas Celebrates 50 Year Anniversary

February 17, 2021

It is with great pride that Vrakas S.C. announces its 50th anniversary this year (1971-2021).

Vrakas CPAs + Advisors was founded 50 years ago when its founder, Bob Vrakas, identified that the larger accounting firms were under-serving middle market, privately-held business in the Milwaukee and Waukesha areas.

Today, the Vrakas team continues to practice serving this niche market providing services in assurance, tax, business valuations, computer consulting and small business accounting in a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing & distribution, dealerships, professional services, real estate and retail.
What began as a small firm with 4 members, has now grown to over 70 professionals with two locations in Brookfield and Kenosha, Wisconsin. We are the 10th largest Milwaukee-area accounting firm and the 2nd largest Milwaukee-area headquartered accounting firm according to The Business Journal’s February 2020 rankings.

We are proud to continue to be fiercely independent with our shareholder group steadfast in its desire to remain one of the largest, locally-owned CPA firms in southeastern Wisconsin.

We ensure clients are being served by qualified professionals and we focus deeply on developing lasting relationships with our clients, establishing what their specific needs are and offering solutions to contribute to their success.
