Beard Miller Company LLP adds new partners
Beard Miller Company LLP (BMC), a nationally ranked U.S. Top 40 regional accounting and consulting firm, has admitted Michael J.Gallagher and Keith R.

Gallagher and Bachman, who previously practiced with Gallagher, Gneiding & Company, LLP in Allentown, will bring their clients to BMC.

"The partners and staff bring expertise serving small businesses, which is a core service area for our existing practice. Additionally, Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Bachman have clients in many similar industry segments, such as manufacturing and distribution, construction and real estate, medical practices, automobile dealers, and retail and service organizations."
In addition to Gallagher and Bachman, four staff members will join the firm. The group joining BMC provides comprehensive audit, accounting, tax, and consulting services to both large and small companies. The combined practice will operate from BMC's current location at 7525 Windsor Drive, Allentown.
Gallagher and Bachman clients will continue to work with the same people that they have come to know and trust through the years. "The addition of Michael Gallagher and Keith Bachman strengthens our Lehigh Valley small business practice while at the same time offers more resources to serve the needs of the their clients," said Stoltzfus. "By employing exceptional client service that is our hallmark, BMC will provide these clients the professional services they want and need to succeed."
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
