Louisville, Ky.-based Strothman and Co. has acquired Ecken & Smith, also of Louisville.

Founders of Ecken & Smith, Ron Ecken and Joyce Smith, will join Strothman but continue to work out of their office. The combined company will have 70 employees across their three offices.

“We share a similar desire to serve all of our clients with many years of combined experience in a caring, hands-on manner,” says Smith.

Strothman and Co., founded nearly 35 years ago, focuses on serving entrepreneurs. Ecken & Smith has experience in tax preparation and planning, audits, business valuations, personal financial planning, litigation support and accounting services.
