CPA firms Averett Warmus Durkee and Osburn, Henning and Company, both based in Orlando, Florida, recently announced that they have merged practices.

The merged entity, Averett Warmus Durkee Osburn Henning, CPAs, now has approximately 100 employees and provides assurance, tax, and consulting services to clients throughout Florida.

The firm's executive committee will consist of Tom Durkee, Ed Hofma, Ron Person, Steve Petosa, and Jim Warmus, according to the company. Warmus will continue to serve as CEO.

"Our decision to merge at this time is reflective of each firm's desire to offer expanded opportunities for employees and increased resources for clients, including membership with the PKF North American Network of independent CPA firms," said Warmus.
