“This acquisition not only solidifies Brown Edwards’ position as the largest firm in these markets, with 15 partners and 92 professional staff between the two offices, but also allows the Cherry Bekaert clients more local resources and access to immediate and local decision making,” says Jason Hartman, CEO. “As Brown Edwards continues to grow throughout the region, we feel these acquisitions demonstrate a firm commitment to the Roanoke and Lynchburg communities, our business and individual clients, and our employees in the area.”
A Top 100 firm, Brown Edwards provides assurance, tax and business advisory services to a diverse clientele throughout Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee. The Roanoke acquisition will result in a new office for Brown Edwards in the Wells Fargo Tower while the Cherry Bekaert office in Lynchburg will transition to the Brown Edwards office.
“Brown Edwards is focused on exceptional service to the individuals and organizations of our region. Through the efforts of many in our community, we are seeing great things happen in our local economy. As evidenced by this investment by Brown Edwards, we are both committed to furthering and supporting that impact. I am excited that our team is joining Brown Edwards as our combined efforts will continue advancing our business eco-system benefiting us all.” said Cherry Bekaert Partner Randy Burton.
