The national accounting firm Weaver, one of the 35 largest certified public accounting firms in the United States and based in Fort Worth, announced its expansion into Oklahoma City where it intends to focus on the energy industry.
The firm said audit partner Zeeshan Khan will manage the office located at 101 Park Avenue, Suite 1300 in Oklahoma City.
“Oklahoma has been a target market for Weaver’s strategic growth,” said Managing Partner and CEO John Mackel. “Zeeshan’s deep energy industry experience and broad commercial industry experience, combined with his established relationships and knowledge of the local market are an ideal match for the firm. We are confident he is the right person to lead this expansion.”
The firm provides a broad range of assurance, tax and advisory services with deep industry knowledge and experience in various sectors. Weaver’s newest office will initially focus on working with energy companies and middle market businesses across other industry sectors. The Oklahoma City office marks the firm’s twelfth location in the U.S.
“I’m excited to play an instrumental role in our official expansion to Oklahoma City,” said Khan. “I see tremendous opportunity with Weaver’s culture and my background that will prove successful in helping us grow a strong practice.”
Khan was formerly with PwC for almost 14 years, providing assurance services to both public and privately held companies across a range of industries including oil & gas, manufacturing (industrial products) and retail. One of his standout industry accomplishments is co-authoring select chapters and making numerous edits throughout the widely-used and respected PwC oil and gas textbook, Petroleum Accounting – Principles, Procedures & Issues, 8th Edition.
In addition to the Oklahoma City office, Weaver has locations in Austin, Conroe, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Midland, San Antonio, Texas; Los Angeles, Woodland Hills and San Diego, California; and New York City.
