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.
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
"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."
