Breakwater Accounting + Advisory, an Inc. 5000 top private company of 2021, is excited to announce a new partnership with Cultivate Advisors, a Chicago-based firm that offers business advisory services to passionate owners and leaders across the U.S. As an independent subsidiary of the Cultivate network, Breakwater will expand its resources and nationwide presence while continuing to help clients build financially successful businesses and nonprofit organizations.

Together, Cultivate and Breakwater will form a business and financial operations advising powerhouse for owners, entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders, all while staying committed to strong client relationships and personalized services. Cultivate will be able to tap into Breakwater’s outsourced bookkeeping, accounting and workflow solutions for clients, as needed. With its focus on forward thinking and embracing cloud-based technology, Breakwater has remained ahead of major changes in the accounting industry.

“Partnering with Cultivate will bring our clients expert business advising services as we harness the fast-growing advising trend in the accounting world,” Breakwater Founder & CEO Lee Podolsky said.

Breakwater’s success and flexible work culture has been recognized regionally and nationwide. The Delaware-based modern accounting firm was ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in the Greater Philadelphia area . Breakwater’s founder Lee Podolsky was named Delaware Business Times’ 2021 Small For-Profit CEO of the Year, and her company was recognized as a 2021 Top Delaware Workplace for small businesses.

The partnership is new, but Podolsky has been working with Cultivate Advisors since 2019 to grow her own business. Podolsky saw the opportunity for a partnership that benefited not just her company, but Breakwater’s own clients, who now have access to leadership development, personalized business advising and other expert services geared toward growing and scaling their organizations.

The Breakwater brand – its leadership, team, culture and close client relationships – remains as strong as ever, with the same boutique approach the company was founded on seven years ago. With this new partnership, Breakwater will continue to expand its unparalleled work across the country with a deeper bench of advisory services.
