Roanoke, Va.-based Brown Edwards (FY19 net revenue of $49.9 million) announces that Gregg & Bailey (G & B) of Midlothian, Va., is joining the firm on Jan. 1.
The G & B partners Brad Bailey and Beth Llewellyn and their employees will become part of the Brown Edwards team and a significant number of G & B’s clients are expected to also transition, Brown Edwards announced.
“This merger positions us to provide a greater depth of expertise and resources to serve our clients, especially those in the Richmond area, strengthens Brown Edwards’ position as one of the largest independent CPA firms in Virginia, and expands our geographic footprint into a vital market,” says CEO Jason Hartman. “More important, we are adding well-respected partners and staff who have provided high quality service and value to the region over many years.”
Bailey adds, “We recognized that the next step for our team members and clients was to merge with a firm that could enable us to expand the level of services we can offer to our clients, but wanted to be part of a firm that is committed to high quality and service as we are.” G & B clients will continue to work with their existing contacts.
An IPA 100 firm, Brown Edwards provides assurance, tax and business advisory services to a diverse clientele throughout Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee. The Richmond-area office will be the eighth office in Virginia and 11th overall.
