I hope you all had a fantastic weekend spending a little time outside enjoying the unseasonably warm temperatures. As far as I am concerned, the frigid cold weather can take its time getting here.
I have some exciting news to share related to the Philadelphia office. Today, we have two new partners – Charles J. Bramley, CPA and Eric R. Stephen, CPA – and six additional staff joining that office, all coming to us from BBD, LLP, a single-office Philly-based firm specializing mostly in the Investment Management and Not-for-Profit industries. As part of a strategic agreement with BBD, we are “lifting” their commercial practice to enhance our own middle-market client base in the Greater Philadelphia area. Charlie and Eric’s clients represent closely held and investor-owned commercial businesses with up to $250 million in revenue in the Real Estate, Construction, Professional Services and Manufacturing & Distribution industry sectors.
Charlie has provided a broad range of accounting, audit, tax and advisory services to both public and privately held middle-market businesses, including the employee benefit plans of these organizations, for more than 25 years. He concentrates on providing these services to manufacturers and distributors as well as registered investment advisors and securities broker-dealers.
Eric has provided accounting, audit, tax and advisory services to middle-market construction, real estate and professional services companies for over 15 years. He has specialized knowledge and experience in computerized audit techniques and the application of auditing standards and procedures to his clients, and has worked extensively with public company clients.
Joining Charlie and Eric are Tom Fleming, Principal; Joseph O’Drain, CPA, Senior Manager; David Good, CPA, Senior; Joseph Press, CPA, Senior; Hillary Flook, Senior; and Susan Cohn, Admin Assistant.
Charlie, Eric and the rest of their team are passionate about providing outstanding client service, and we fully expect they will bring a new level of energy and excitement to our Philadelphia office. Eric Strauss, the PIC of that office, is equally as excited about the growth and opportunity an expanded group of talented professionals will bring. Please join me in welcoming the newest members of the Withum family.
