Details: Montreal accounting firm Fauteux, Bruno, Bussière, Leewarden (FBBL), which has 110 employees, has merged with BDO Canada LLP. The combination has increased BDO Canada’s local presence to 300 employees.

“We are joining forces with a firm that has a first-rate reputation among Montreal’s business community,” said Jacques Filion, managing partner of BDO’s Montreal office, one of 100 nation-wide.

“We’re excited by the opportunity for our people to grow and prosper within the wider BDO environment,” said Gilles Bussière, partner of FBBL.


Insero and CDLM to merge

Details: Insero & Co. CPAs with offices in Rochester and Corning and Ciaschi, Dietershagen, Little, Mickelson & Company LLP with offices in Ithaca, Cortland, and Watkins Glen, have signed an agreement to merge. The combined firm will have over 125 employees and will operate under the Insero & Co. name.

“The combination will expand the service offerings for our clients and the growth potential for our team members in each office location. The client base and team members experience for both firms complement each other so well and allow us to continue our growth strategy while maintaining our promise of the highest standard in everything we do,” said Nancy Catarisano, who will serve as managing partner.

“What excites me about this merger is that both firms provide a full range of accounting, auditing, and tax consultation, planning and preparation services,” said John Dietershagen, who will serve as office managing partner for the Southern Tier locations. “However, with the merger, we can now expand Insero's Outsource Accounting Services Group to Ithaca, Cortland, and Watkins Glen, and build on CDLM’s government, education, and nonprofit experience into the Rochester marketplace.”

The combined firm will provide attest, tax, and consulting services, including outsourced staffing solutions, for middle market, small business, and large multinational companies in the manufacturing, distribution, real estate, not-for-profit, education, government, and employee benefit plan industries.
