Reko's origins began when Frans Koch joined Wesrek Accountants in Saldanha and opened a branch in Vredenburg in 1997. This branch employed 6 people.
JOINING FORCES WITH LDP
By 2000 the Vredenburg branch grew to such an extent that we were approached by LDP, a medium-sized auditing firm in Stellenbosch, to join forces. We subsequently changed our name to LDP (West Coast) Inc. and Wesrek Accountants in Saldanha broke away to form a separate company.
Shortly hereafter Wayne Alexander joined the firm, after which Marius Basson was incorporated under the LDP name to provide human resource services.
A joint agreement was entered into with PSG to provide wealth management.
LEADING ACCOUNTING AND AUDITING FIRM ON THE WEST COAST
In 2002 the company's growth necessitated the appointment of another partner. Alfonso Janse van Rensburg became a partner in January 2002. The company grew further and employed 35 people by 2006.
THE BIRTH OF REKO
After some discussions, a mutual decision was made to move away from LDP, where after our name was changed to Reko Accountants in 2009 and is registered member of SAICA, SAIPA and SAIT.
Reko currently has five directors and employs 36 members of staff.
