It's both good and bad to be writing this column as a fill-in for Bill Carlino, who's on vacation this week. The good thing is that the column is about accounting industry consolidation pioneer Bob Basten, who I’ve had the good fortune to get to know personally. During the past three years he spent building the industry’s largest single consolidator, Centerprise Advisors. I’ve met with Bob personally about a half dozen times and talked with him over the phone at least 50 times, so this column, to an extent, truly is a “View From The Inside.”
