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.
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.
