MGO Expands Reach in Silicon Valley Through Acquisition of Young, Craig & Company 

LOS ANGELES — March 1st, 2023 — MGO (Macias Gini & O’Connell LLP), a top-100 CPA firm and one of the fastest growing business advisory and accounting firms in the country, announced that it has combined with Silicon Valley-based Young, Craig & Company (YCC). YCC’s team of more than 20 members will join MGO along with three YCC partners.  

Founded in 1977, YCC is a top-tier tax and CPA firm that specializes in providing high-quality tax preparation and advisory services to individuals and businesses. Their experienced team delivers customized solutions and tailored advice to each client based on their unique needs and circumstances.  

“Young, Craig & Company is known for their commitment to client service and helping them navigate challenging tax and accounting issues,” said Kevin O’Connell, CEO and managing partner of MGO. “Together, we will continue to expand into Silicon Valley, a business and technology hub where MGO has strategically grown its presence over the last several years.” 

With this combination, YCC’s existing clients will gain access to a comprehensive suite of business and financial solutions, including assurance and advisory services, and specialty offerings like R&D tax credits, international tax, transaction advisory, and cyber and information security.  

Marc Leardini, who joins MGO as the office managing partner of the Mountain View office, comments, “Joining with MGO amplifies our ability to provide innovative new ways to help our clients thrive in the face of an increasingly complex business environment. This move also will create a lot of opportunity for our team members, to grow and develop as part of a larger firm, gaining access to robust professional development opportunities.” 

By joining MGO, YCC team members gain access to new opportunities for professional development and advancement. Former YCC team members will continue to operate from Mountain View as the newest MGO office. 

Mark Basinski, Managing Director at Whitman Transition Advisors, advised both firms on the transaction and said, “MGO continues to grow its footprint in the Bay Area, becoming one of the major service providers for high growth tech companies. The talent at Young, Craig and Company will bolster their existing team and help grow their capacity.”
