Texas CPA firms announce merger
Sprouse & Anderson LLP in Austin, TX has combined with San Antonio-based Padgett Stratemann & Co. LLP with plans to target midsized business customers in Central and South Texas. The firm will operate under the name PS&Co.
Based on the number of CPAs, Sprouse & Anderson is the eighth-largest firm in Austin and Padgett is the second-largest accounting firm in San Antonio, according to a report in the Austin Business Journal.
"Austin is a tremendously growing, dynamic market," says Lester Sprouse, a managing partner of the Austin firm. "We were looking to find a partner that would give us the resources to serve that market quickly, rather than trying to grow to serve it."
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.
