I am pleased to share some really exciting news today. The partners of The Mironov Group, a highly respected public accounting firm based in Edison, NJ, have signed agreements to join their practice with WithumSmith+Brown. Jim Boland, CPA, CVA, Mironov’s managing partner since 2010, and his firm’s 10 partners and 40 additional staff will officially transition to the Withum team on January 1.
The Mironov Group provides specialized accounting, audit, tax and consulting services to the automotive, healthcare, real estate and professional services industries. We are excited about the addition of their deep expertise in the automotive space, rounding out our current practice areas of Consumer Products and Manufacturing, Distribution & Logistics nicely. The Mironov Group also has strength in healthcare, specifically physician groups, assisted living facilities, home health agencies and nursing homes, which complements our firm’s expansive list of hospital and healthcare system clients. Their real estate practice includes some marquis clients that will bolster our robust niche. Mironov’s Edison office will remain at its current location through the end of the 2016 tax season, but will then relocate to our New Brunswick, NJ office soon after. Their Blue Bell, PA, office will remain at its current location.
Culturally, the Mironov staff are a great fit. A few were at the video filming on Friday, and all are very much looking forward to joining us at the State of the Firm event on January 11th. Various members of Withum’s HR, IT and Marketing departments have been working closely with the group for the past few months and are equally as excited to have these spirited professionals as part of the Withum family.
Growth through mergers and acquisitions is certainly a part of our firm’s long-term strategy, to supplement our organic growth. We are so pleased that throughout the firm’s 41 years of history, we have been successful in finding the right strategic partners to help us reach new markets, expand a variety of service areas, and bring aboard so many talented professionals who help provide the world-class service our clients have come to expect every day. We are confident The Mironov Group will continue this legacy of great partnerships.
