Jackson Thornton, a CPA firm in Montgomery, Ala., is combining with Brantley, Boucher & Farr LLP, based in the Auburn-Opelika area, expanding Jackson Thornton’s presence in Alabama.

The deal takes effect on Sept. 2, 2016. It will increase Jackson Thornton’s headcount to more than 200 employees, with six offices across Alabama in addition to Tennessee.

Jackson Thornton ranked 8th on Accounting Today’s 2016 Regional Leaders list for the Top Firms in the Gulf Coast region, with $27.33 million in annual revenue. The firm dates back to 1919, while BB&F was founded in 1959.

“The addition of BB&F to the Jackson Thornton family gives our existing clients in East Alabama even greater access to our professionals and services,” said Jackson Thornton president and managing principal Ned Sheffield in a statement. “At the same time, it gives our new clients a depth of experience and resources they haven’t had before.”

BB&F managing partner Steve Boucher said that joining Jackson Thornton would put his firm’s clients in a great position to expand. “Our mission has always been to develop client relationships based on trust and personal attention,” he added. “Jackson Thornton has the same philosophy, while providing hundreds of years of collective experience, and we look forward to enhancing our practice together.”
