RubinBrown LLP Joins With Denver's Oldest CPA Firm

23 Jul 2010

Saltzman Hamma Nelson Massaro LLP (SHNM), Denver's oldest CPA firm, and RubinBrown LLP are joining together, effective 1 August, to form what is projected to be among the 50 largest accounting firms in the United States. The new entity, which will operate as RubinBrown, will have a professional staff of 375 working from offices in Denver, Kansas City, Mo. and St. Louis.

The announcement was made jointly by James G. Castellano, CPA, chairman, RubinBrown LLP, and Gregory P. Osborn, CPA, managing partner, Saltzman Hamma Nelson Massaro LLP. 

Osborn will continue in his current role as managing partner of the Denver office. Brian D. Frevert, CPA, CFP, James I. Massaro, CPA, Meyer M. Saltzman, CPA, CFF, DABFA, Frank D. Seffinger, CPA, and Russell A. White, CPA, all will continue as partners with the expanded RubinBrown.

"Our firms' combined expertise enables us to grow together in our markets and provides us the opportunity to offer new value and greater depth of resources to clients," explains Castellano.

According to Castellano, St. Louis-based RubinBrown has been looking toward a third regional office since it successfully expanded into the Kansas City market in late 2005. Currently the firm is ranked number one in St. Louis by the St. Louis Business Journal, number 10 in Kansas City by the Kansas City Business Journal, and 54th in Accounting Today's 2010 Top 100 Firms.

Commenting on the joining of the two firms, RubinBrown managing partner John F. Herber Jr. said the Denver market and the firm of SHNM provide a perfect fit for RubinBrown, not only for its business, but also for its people.

"Colorado currently has three of the nation's top ten mid-sized business cities (Boulder - 1, Fort Collins-3, and Colorado Springs-7), plus it is a strong centre for government, energy and technology," said Herber. "We see future growth in many of our areas of specialisation."
