The combined client base includes agribusiness, banking, timeshare, real estate, construction, governmental and not-for-profit entities. The firm’s executive committee will consist of Tom Durkee, Ed Hofma, Ron Person, Steve Petosa and Jim Warmus. Warmus will continue to serve as CEO.

Financial terms of the merger were not disclosed. The combined firm will have nearly 100 employees, with Averett contributing 63 employees and Osburn 36.

“Our decision to merge at this time is reflective of each firm’s desire to offer expanded opportunities for employees and increased resources for clients, including membership with the PKF North American Network of independent CPA firms,” said Warmus in a statement. “We have become bigger and better as a result of the merger.”
