Name Change, Affiliation Part of BMF's Strategy

The Akron, Ohio-based accounting firm of Bober, Markey, Fedorovich & Company recently changed its name and announced a new affiliation with the Financial Consulting Group, L.C. (FCG).

The firm added the name, Fedorovich, last month to reflect the contributions made by Managing Partner, Rick Fedorovich. The affiliation with FCG is a result of the firm having built a strong business valuation and litigation practice during the past few years. BMF & Company responded to a recent invitation to join FCG, a group recognized in the industry as containing the field's most authoritative experts on business valuation.

Many FCG members hold advanced accreditations and BMF will fit right in. For example, two members of BMF & Company carry special credentials as valuation experts. Mark Bober, CPA, partner, carries the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential from the American Institute of CPAs, and is a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA). Ray Dunkle, CPA, the firm's manager of valuation services, also holds CVA certification.

FCG is a North American consortium of accounting and consulting firms that have pooled their technical expertise to bring specialized valuation and litigation expertise to their clients. There are over 60 firms within the United States affiliated with FCG, and BMF & Company is one of two Ohio-based firms that are part of the alliance.
