Top 100 Firm Cherry Bekaert has acquired Thomas, Knight, Trent, King and Company.

The new addition has approximately 17 professionals in the Raleigh-Durham market, which boosts Cherry Bekaert’s Raleigh practice to 105 employees.

Former Thomas Knight shareholders Pamela Brinkley, Ronnie Eubanks and Steve Hancock will join Cherry Bekaert as partners.

“With the larger service platform of a $150M+ revenue firm, we are better positioned to serve the growing business needs of our clients,” Thomas Knight’s former managing shareholder Steve Hancock said in a statement. “Cherry Bekaert’s stellar reputation and dedication to middle-market companies made the firm a perfect fit for our people and our clients.”

“Cherry Bekaert will incorporate the talents and expertise of the former [Thomas Knight] shareholders and professionals into our existing industry groups and specialty practice areas of real estate, construction, technology, life sciences, entrepreneurial advisory and high-end tax consulting,” noted Cherry Bekaert managing partner Howard Kies. “Expanding the depth of our talent in the Raleigh-Durham area is a key strategic growth initiative for our firm.”
