SEATTLE, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest accounting and business consulting firms in the nation, today announced it has agreed to combine with Issaquah, Wash.-based Curtis Consulting Group (CCG). Effective September 1, 2015, CCG personnel will join Moss Adams, expanding the firm's IT consulting and software development capabilities.

"CCG is a great firm with a similar culture that can help us grow our IT consulting practice and more holistically serve our clients," said Chris Schmidt, chairman and CEO of Moss Adams. "Moss Adams has been growing steadily, and it's our goal to build on the momentum of this growth to provide excellent service to our clients."
