March 2017 – Wipfli LLP, one of the top 25 CPA and consulting firms in the United States, captured the first inaugural Weyenberg Prize for Business Excellence by distinguishing itself through its efforts to build an intentional culture that nurtures excellence in leadership, its approach to listening to the voice of their clients and associates, and its clear vision to grow the company following “the Wipfli Way”. 

In addition, UW-Green Bay Business Administration student Justin Krizenesky, a freshman from Kimberly, Wis., received a $5,000 scholarship in the name of Wipfli, for best exemplifying the spirit of the Weyenberg Prize. Krizenesky’s goal is to be a high-level executive in marketing. He serves his community by participating in events to raise money to fight Cystic Fibrosis and increase public awareness of the disease.
