Michigan CPA firms announce merger

The Rehmann Group, one of the state’s largest CPA and consulting firms, announces its merger with Novi-based Pew & Kearis effective immediately.

“With an ever-increasing presence in the Metro Detroit market, we are better positioned to serve middle-market companies,” said Steve Kelly, Chairman & CEO of The Rehmann Group. “Companies have been looking for alternatives in the professional services marketplace, and we believe we are now that strong alternative.”

“Our goal is always to become better, not bigger,” adds Kelly. “While some organizations merge with the simple goal of market share expansion, we think the real value of a merger is the expanded talent we bring to the table.”

The merger brings together an alignment of partners with representative strengths in The Rehmann Group’s core industry segments, including manufacturing, government/nonprofit, healthcare, service business, retail/distribution, real estate, and international as well as closely held companies, according to Kelly.

“For Pew & Kearis, PLLC, this merger represents an opportunity to even better serve our clients with a diverse array of accounting and business consulting services,” said Bryan Kearis, managing partner of Pew & Kearis, PLLC.
