Alex Krog, CPA

Partner, Elgin


Alex joined PKF Mueller in 2012 and has been proficient in providing mainly attest services for clients in the distribution, manufacturing, technology, contracting, and professional services industries. As of recent, his focus is in the private equity arena, having performed extensive work on both buy and sell side due diligence for transaction engagements. Additionally, he is a leader in PKF Mueller’s Employee Benefit Plan Group, providing client services and education.

Carrying on a very client-centric approach, Alex notes his favorite part of the job “is getting to know employees and clients, while getting a comprehensive understanding of the company.” He takes great pride in running efficient engagements, serving his clients with the highest quality work and good rapport.

At PKF Mueller, Alex’s role extends beyond delivering quality technical services to clients as he has considerable involvement in mentoring and training of newer staff. This leadership trait was evidenced when he volunteered to be the first employee to participate in the Firm’s Global Exchange Employee Program (GEEP), traveling to Germany to live and work with a German CPA firm. During this time, Alex was able to share technical expertise with the other firm’s members, develop new skills, and gain first-hand experience with diverse business environments and cultures. His experience helped build the foundation and best practices of this program for many future candidates that followed him.

Alex became a ‘girl dad’ in July 2020, and in June 2022, he and his wife were equally pleased to welcome a son to their family. Alex maintains that being a father is by far and away the most difficult job he has worked on in his 10 years in public accounting, but definitely the best.
