Ambrico, CPA PC., the diversified practice started more than forty years ago by Louis Ambrico, CPA. This acquisition positions CondeBoyce, LLP as one of the leading full-service accounting firms in the New York metropolitan area.

The two principals of the firm, Joseph G. Boyce and Mario Conde, combined their more than fifty years of experience and expertise earlier this year under the CondeBoyce name. Since then, the two men have been featured in numerous industry publications, including Accounting Today, Smart CEO, CPA Practice Advisor and Long Island Business News. Joseph Boyce, CPA, is a frequent contributor to LearnVest.com and specializes in CFO outsource services for hedge funds and high net worth individuals.

Mario Conde, CPA, specializes in startup firms as well as tax planning, preparation and consulting for small to medium sized privately held businesses. He also performs due diligence services on business acquisitions and advises individual clients on tax and personal financial matters.

After being interviewed by Smart CEO Magazine for an article on mergers and acquisitions, Mario Conde was chosen to participate in the magazine’s roundtable discussion on the same topic along with eight other New York CEOs later this month at the New York Times Building in New York City. The discussion will be recorded for an audio podcast and for a feature article in Smart CEO in January, 2015.
