RK2 Advisory’s heritage extends to 1996 when we were established as a unit within the Seattle office of Arthur Andersen.  This group of experienced controllers, finance directors and technology specialists was formed to address the operational needs of finance and accounting departments.


After moving to KPMG and then Red Cedar Partners, RK2 Advisory was founded in 2009 to help healthcare and non-profit clients in the Seattle area to better serve their mission, to make progress towards their most urgent goals.

During our years of experience, we have earned a reputation for taking a practical, hands-on approach to solving complex problems, working side-by-side with clients to improve performance and create competitive advantage.
