by AccountingWEB on
Pittard Perry & Crone Inc. (PPC), a CPA firm with nine offices in North Carolina, has acquired two independent CPA firms in Raleigh.
The firms - Kittinger Cheney & Associates, CPAs PA and Whitley, Maxton and Co. PLLC - with 18 total employees, will serve clients under the PPC name.
“By merging with PPC, we will be able to provide our clients with more industry-specific knowledge without sacrificing the level of service they deserve,” Tom Kittinger said in a press release. “The professionals at PPC share our commitment to personal attention and will be there to help us offer more advice and services to small businesses in our community.”
Pittard Perry & Crone Inc. has added three new offices in the last 12 months. PPC now has 115 employees with 19 shareholders. The firm is a member of the CPAmerica International Network.
“Though we're growing, our main focus remains the same, to provide personalized ideas, strategies and results to individuals and small businesses in the communities we serve,” PPC managing partner Dean Horne said. “In the last year, we've expanded to help clients address the unique challenges small companies are facing in the down economy. In 2010, we'll be here to help small businesses take advantage of every opportunity to position themselves for the coming recovery.”
