The history of ZRC Wealth Management
In 1979, Tim Zainer, Rich Rinehart, and Rick Clarke founded Zainer Rinehart Clarke CPAs in Santa Rosa, California. Over the next 40 years, the accounting firm grew to become one of the largest in Sonoma County serving affluent families, high net worth investors, and closely held businesses. The firm opened offices in Sonoma and St. Helena before merging with Pisenti & Brinker CPAs in 2019.
To meet the needs of business owners and sophisticated investors, in 1999, Rick Clarke founded ZRC Financial Services, LLC.
In 2014 Barry Mendelson merged his firm, Elevation Wealth Management, with Rick and ZRC to form ZRC Wealth Management, LLC. The combined firm specializes in delivering high-touch wealth management services to investors and families across the globe.
Today ZRC Wealth Management serves clients in 22 states and three foreign countries. For clients and prospective clients that wish to meet in-person, ZRC has offices in Walnut Creek, Santa Rosa, Petaluma, and Tahoe City.
