Maddox Ungar Silberstein, PLLC, a Bingham Farms, MI-based public accounting and audit firm, with services primarily focused within the publicly traded company, franchise, and broker dealer industries, announced that it has changed its name to Silberstein Ungar, PLLC.
The firm also announced recent additions of audit staff as part of a significant investment in expanding its Public Company and Broker/Dealer practice groups. Silberstein Ungar, PLLC, provides a complete range of high-level assurance, tax, and consulting services to numerous clients throughout the United States, Canada, Asia, and Europe.
"It has long been our clear and strong vision to grow our audit practice to meet the increasing needs of our rapidly expanding client base," said Joel Ungar, principal and 2003 firm founder.
"Our continued growth and expansion in the SEC, Broker/Dealer, and Franchise sectors provides us with an ideal opportunity to carve out a distinct identity. It enables us to further become one of the prominent go-to firms in the small to mid-sized business community," Ungar said. "The name change to Silberstein Ungar, PLLC, reflects the departure of John Maddox from the firm and reflects our dedicated commitment to charting the course for firm growth, as well as improved client service, in a more cohesive way.
"As part of this initiative, the firm is thrilled to announce that Dave Kobylarek, CPA, and Seth Gorback each have been promoted to audit manager, and we welcome Cary Hammond, CPA, and John Chirco, both new members of our audit staff. Each has Big Four audit experience and will help us better serve our clients," Ungar said.
According to Ron Silberstein, principal and head of the firm's SEC Audit and Franchisor Audit Practices, "Throughout our firm's existence, we have held an unparalleled commitment to our clients - and this won't change - in fact, it will improve. Our office is still in the same location, with the same mailing address, phone, and fax number. The only external change is the name on the door which will now be Silberstein Ungar, PLLC; internally, however, we have a heightened focus on client responsiveness, and an expanded, more experienced team to serve them."
