SRWC LLP has been servicing the Sudbury business community since 1954. The firm was founded by Mr. Alfred Favretto, a man born and raised in Sudbury with Italian Canadian descent that serviced the hard working immigrants of Sudbury.
Alfred was joined in 1958 by T.W. (Bill) Sinclair and later in 1960 by Nick Sostarich. This would be the beginning of 3 generations of the Sostarich family’s commitment to the firm and to servicing the community. The practice took the name of Favretto, Sinclair & Sostarich, Chartered Accountants and was located on Lisgar street in downtown Sudbury.
With the booming Sudbury economy of the 1960’s, the firm focused on servicing small to medium sized private businesses. During this time, J.R. (“Chucker”) Ross, Francis Wright and Norm Cecutti joined the firm as Partners. Alfred Favretto later retired in 1972, with John Didone joining as a Partner in the same year.
As there was an influx of new partnerships, the name of the firm changed to Sostarich, Ross, Wright & Cecutti LLP in the early 1980’s. The continued service of small to medium sized private businesses began to grow even further as the Sudbury business community continued to evolve and flourish.
In the early 1990’s, both Chuck Lilly and Andrew Sostarich joined the practice. This established the second generation of the Sostarich name within the firm, along with a long-standing partnership between Chuck Lilly and Andrew Sostarich that stands to this day.
Over the next 2 decades, many of the veteran partners began to retire, ushering in a new generation of Chartered Accountants including current Partner, Grant Cooper, who joined in the early 2000’s. The firm continued to establish itself as one of Sudbury’s most experienced and respected accounting firms by valuing client relationships at the forefront of the firm’s success. The practice shortened its name in 2015 to SRWC LLP.
In 2020, Vedran Dukic and Ryan Sostarich joined the SRWC LLP practice as Partners. This marked the 3rd generation of the Sostarich name and opened up the firm to a youthful generation of service from both Vedran and Ryan that continues on the base of what was originally established more than half a century ago.
Today, the firm has grown to 5 Partners and 50 staff members. The decades of professional experience have been passed down through generations and have allowed SRWC LLP to provide excellent service to Sudbury’s business community.
