Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC has expanded its presence in Northeast Florida by merging in the Jacksonville-based CPA firm Harbeson, Fletcher & Bateh, LLP.

HF&B will now operate under the CRI name. This merger adds to CRI’s established Florida offices in areas spanning across the Panhandle, throughout central Florida, and south to Tampa Bay.

“Establishing an office location in Jacksonville has been a part of our growth strategy for some time,” said CRI chairman and managing partner William H. Carr in a statement.  “We’ve been actively searching for a team to  complement and enhance our service offerings—as well as assist with servicing our current Jacksonville client base—and we’ve found the right match with Harbeson, Fletcher & Bateh.”

Harbeson, Fletcher & Bateh, LLP, was founded in 1976 as a full-service accounting firm specializing in providing services to governmental entities, construction companies, manufacturing and distribution companies, and not-for-profit organizations.

CRI, based in Enterprise, Ala., ranked 23nd on Accounting Today’s 2015 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $171.08 million in annual revenue.
