Founded in1969, Armanino is one of the 25 largest accounting
firms in the U.S. by revenue. It's also the largest accounting and
business consulting firm headquartered in California.
In early 2017, the firm completed its acquisition of the
Dallas-based accounting firm Travis Wolff, which is expected to add
over $22 million in revenues. Prior to that, in recent years,
Armanino's revenues had climbed by as much as 30 percent per
Armanino's recent era of growth was ushered in by Andy Armanino
in 2005 when he became managing partner. Since taking the helm,
Armanino has more than doubled the accounting firm's headcount.
Given Armanino's proximity to Silicon Valley, it's no surprise that
the firm's largest industry group is its technology practice. In
fact, the firm's high-tech clients have included heavy hitters like
Microsoft, OpenTable, and SurveyMonkey. Armanino's remaining
industry groups are manufacturing and distribution, health care,
retail, not-for-profit, professional services, private education,

has worked with some big names in California, including
eBay, Electronic Arts, Brocade, The SF

out of several offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has
additional offices in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Woodland Hills,
