Gofrank & Mattina PC has merged with the Lapeer, Mich.-based accounting firm Brown & Kent PC. The combined firm now has a total of 29 employees, including 19 CPAs.

Gofrank & Mattina will continue to operate out of its Rochester, Mich., office under its own name, while Brown & Kent will continue to do business under its current name in Lapeer. Gofrank & Mattina’s president, Vincent Mattina, will keep his position, while Brown & Kent’s founders Kim Brown and Clark Kent will maintain leadership roles within the new firm.

“The newly integrated firm will provide our clients with enhanced expertise and increased depth," 

Mattina said in a statement. "This growth creates additional resources for us to work more closely with our clients to help them achieve their financial goals.”

“Combining the two firms is an ideal way to offer more comprehensive tax, audit and accounting assistance to our clients and expand our geographic footprint,” Kent added. “Both firms share a similar culture and commitment to the communities we serve, so this merger just makes sense.”
