Expanding its presence in North Carolina, Enterprise, Ala.-based IPA 100 firm Carr Riggs & Ingram LLC (CRI) (FY20 net revenue of $331.8 million) is merging in High Point, N.C.-based Sharrard McGee & Co. PA.
“Sharrard McGee & Co. and CRI are like-minded in our commitment to our clients, our teams and furthering our profession,” says CRI chairman and MP William Carr. “Together we are forward-thinking, and the combination of their High Point and Greensboro offices with our other North Carolina locations helps leverage the vitality of our teams and resources to further enhance our client experience and technical expertise.”
“[CRI’s success story] started with the simple premise of, ‘grow your people and grow your clients,’ and everything else followed,” adds Allan Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group, who advised both firms on the deal. “Sharrard McGee & Co. lives these same principles and they’ve been a big driver in their own firm’s success. From the first time they met with CRI it was apparent that they were a cultural and strategic fit and that together they would make great things happen.”
