Langwasser & Company CPAs, one of the Inland Empire’s leading full-service accounting firms serving clients throughout Southern California and across the United States, has doubled its partnership ranks with the naming of two new partners.
Shawn Hull of Chino Hills and Rosa Huerta of Upland have joined founding and lead partner Karin Langwasser and managing partner Cindy Agostini in leading the Upland, Calif., firm.
In addition, earlier this year, Langwasser & Company appointed two other team members to management positions. Sarah Scully was promoted to tax and accounting supervisor and Brandie Lubelski rejoined the company as controller.
“From the time they joined us, both Shawn and Rosie have been key members of the Langwasser & Company family,” Langwasser said. “Both have been groomed and trained for leadership positions, progressively advancing within the company while continually taking on additional responsibilities and developing expertise in a wide range of specialty areas.”

The move expands the partnership team’s expertise over a variety of financial and tax-related areas.
