Top Firm Expands Presence in Florida and Southeast with Mergers
The Birmingham, AL based public accounting firm of Mackle, Splawn, Tindall & McDonald joined forces with CRI earlier this month along with the firm of Weathersby, D’Aoust, Harris & Lynn, PA.
Carr, Riggs said the mergers will broaden the firm's footprint. "CRI’s long range plan has been to move into larger metropolitan markets. The mergers will allow us to support our existing client base in Birmingham while also providing a base for expanding our market share," said Carr, Riggs & Ingram Managing Partner William H. Carr.
Mackle, Splawn, Tindall & McDonald Managing Partner Brian Barksdale commented on new opportunities presented by the merger. "Our clients will not only continue to experience the high-quality service we have delivered to clients in the Birmingham area in our fifty years of business, but our clients will now have access to an expanded base of resources and expertise. It's a real win-win situation," Barksdale says.
CRI said the merger with Weathersby, D’Aoust, Harris & Lynn, PA will enhance service offerings for Construction, Condominium Association and Not-for-Profit organizations. This union of firms creates the largest public accounting presence in Bay County. The firm will continue to operate at two Panama City locations; 2583 Huntcliff Lane and 2232 West 24th St. temporarily.
The firm expects to open an office at Panama City Beach in the near future. "This combination will create a dynamic presence within Bay County," said William H. Carr, Managing Partner of CRI.
