Mike McAvoy, CPA

Manager, Elgin


Mike joined PKF Mueller as an auditor in October 2014. His experience consists of performing audits, reviews and compilations for a variety of not-for-profit, government and for-profit entities. Additional experience has been gained in recent years while working on a number of single audit engagements. Thus far, Mike’s favorite aspect to being an auditor has been the opportunity to go out to a client and gain an in-depth understanding of their operations.

Mike obtained his CPA license in February 2016 and is committed to expanding his knowledge daily. As an auditor, he feels he is able to achieve this by the variety of clients he works with and the ongoing opportunities PKF Mueller has to offer.

In the Fall of 2017, Mike took part in PKF Mueller’s Global Employee Exchange Program. As part of this program he spent three months working at an affiliated German CPA firm in Munich. While there, he assisted in the financial reporting of Siemens AG and gained exposure in the world of international business and culture.

Mike is a determined individual who grew up in the Northern Illinois area. In his spare time, he enjoys participating in the charitable endeavors PKF Mueller is involved with, along with taking part in various runs/walks for charity.
