Our Story

In the late ’60s, friends Ron Winer and Frank Bevilacqua envisioned owning a CPA firm. After separate paths post-college, they reunited in 1980 to establish Winer + Bevilacqua with a commitment to superior service. By 2001, banks were selling insurance, law firms were setting up in-house units to offer investments, and accounting firms were expanding consulting services to include wealth management. Seeing these industry changes play out, Frank Bevilacqua II and Shelby Morgan launched W3 Wealth Management. Over a decade, W3 expanded, acquiring four regional firms and offering retiring principals a smooth transition.

In 2018, Winer + Bevilacqua and W3 Wealth Management joined forces to acquire their fifth enterprise, Schiffman Grow & Company and SG Financial Services. Winer + Bevilacqua changed its name to W3 Global Accounting to reflect its continuing expansion through the acquisition of other similar CPA practices in the region.

Today, W3 Financial Group (comprised of W3 Global Accounting and W3 Wealth Management) is now positioned as one of the largest and fastest-growing independent business consulting and financial services practices in Ohio. Headquartered in Akron, Ohio, we maintain offices in Akron, Westlake and Worthington, Ohio, and Ashburn, Virginia.

At W3, our name is more than just an acronym – it’s a reflection of our core values and guiding principles. W3 stands for Wisdom, Wealth, and Worth, and these values are at the heart of everything we do.
