Dent K. Burk Associates, P.C. and Hodges, Jones & Mabry, P.C. have joined the accounting firm of Brown, Edwards & Company, L.L.P., effective Nov. 1, 2015.

The combined firm will have nearly 300 associates in nine offices located in Blacksburg, Bristol, Harrisonburg, Lynchburg, Roanoke, and Wytheville, Va.; Charleston and Bluefield, W. Va.; and Kingsport, Tenn.

Brown Edwards services a diverse client base, but specializes in helping construction, health care and banking businesses, along with higher education. With these mergers, the firm adds automobile dealerships to the mix.

“These mergers position us to provide a greater depth of expertise and resources to serve the needs of our clients and strengthen Brown Edwards' position as the largest independent certified public accounting firm in our geographic footprint,” said Brown Edwards managing partner Don Pellillo in a statement. “But more importantly, we are adding well respected partners and staff whom we have worked with over many years. All of us have a similar client-centric approach to helping our clients achieve their goals. Our merger simply brings more resources to the table to accomplish that goal."
