Denver Firm Combining With RubinBrown LLP

26 May 2011

BONDI & Co. LLC, an accounting firm located in Denver, and RubinBrown LLP, an independent member of Baker Tilly International, are joining together, effective 1 June 2011, to form what is projected to be among the 50 largest accounting firms in the United States. The firm will have a combined professional staff of more than 400 with offices in Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis. The announcement was made jointly by James G. Castellano, CPA, chairman, RubinBrown LLP, and Bert R. Bondi, CPA, partner, BONDI & Co. LLC.

"Our firms' combined expertise and resources enable us to provide exceptional service to our clients and continue to grow in our markets," explained Castellano. "Similar to BONDI & Co., RubinBrown has a long and respected relationship with many clients, a number of which date back to the firm's inception in 1952."

According to Castellano, RubinBrown has been looking to expand its audit practice in the Denver area since it successfully entered the market in mid-2010. Combined, RubinBrown will now serve clients with nearly 60 accounting, tax and business professionals in the Denver office.

"We're very pleased to have the BONDI & Co. firm and its professionals join with RubinBrown as they provide the perfect fit for us," noted RubinBrown's managing partner John F. Herber Jr., CPA. "Their outstanding audit practice has long been recognised for its quality and depth."

The firm's current offices located in Englewood and Denver will physically combine in mid-September and Gregory P. Osborn, CPA, partner, RubinBrown, will continue to serve as the Denver office's managing partner. Bondi, Evelyn D. Law, CPA, Julia Stone, CPA, and Cheryl L. Wallace, CPA, have all been named partners with the expanded RubinBrown.

Bondi noted the Englewood firm's roots, which was founded in 1976. "Bondi & Co. has been operating for 35 years and has maintained a strong reputation for innovative business solutions and personal service. By joining RubinBrown, our clients will have access to greater reach and more comprehensive services with specific industry expertise."

Currently, RubinBrown is ranked 53rd in Inside Public Accounting's Top 100 Firms Listing (data is based on 2009 FYE data.). The firm was ranked number one in St. Louis in 2010 by the St. Louis Business Journal, number 11 in Kansas City by the Kansas City Business Journal and number 21 in Denver by the Denver Business Journal.

Founded in 1952, RubinBrown is one of the nation's largest accounting and business consulting firms, with more than 400 team members working from offices in St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver and its newest office in Englewood. The firm's team members hold leadership roles in both national and local accounting organisations and have worked to establish best practices in accounting within specific industry segments.
