Rochester, N.Y.-based EFPR Group (FY17 net revenue of $25.4 million) is merging in the accounting practice of Nowicki & Company of West Seneca, N.Y., into its Williamsville, N.Y., office.
The merger, effective Nov. 1, is expected to bring benefits to the clients and employees of both organizations and strengthen the business services EFPR Group now provides to its client base of more than 10,000.
“Our decision to unite with the West Seneca practice was based on the outstanding quality and service Ray Nowicki has provided to clients for over 30 years,” says James I. Marasco, EFPR Group MP. “The Nowicki & Company reputation for providing extraordinary tax planning, preparation and consulting is consistent with our mission to help clients make intelligent and informed financial decisions.”
He adds that the firm is considering additional mergers and acquisitions in upstate New York.
Raymond Nowicki, Laura Geiger and Paul Kiel will join EFPR Group as partners and will be responsible for client relations, new business development and growing the commercial services practice. Additional staff members will also join as part of this transition.
EFPR Group has been serving clients across the United States and abroad for 60 years with a comprehensive array of tax consulting and planning services in addition to auditing, forensic accounting, business valuation, accounting, outsourcing automation services and other business management services.
