ATLANTA – December 8, 2020 – Aprio, LLP, a nationally recognized, top 50, CPA-led business advisory firm headquartered in Atlanta, announced today that it has combined with New York City-based Tarlow & Co. CPAs and Advisors (Tarlow). Effective January 1, 2021, Tarlow’s team members, including five partners, will join Aprio.
Founded in 1940, Tarlow serves businesses and individuals across the tri-state area and in key markets across the United States by providing peace of mind and stewardship across every aspect of clients’ financial world. Tarlow’s unwavering dedication to their clients and personal approach fortify long-term relationships, which is why many of their clients have remained loyal through generations.
“Welcoming Tarlow team members broadens Aprio’s presence in the Northeast and expands our foothold in the New York City market,” said Richard Kopelman, CEO and Managing Partner at Aprio. “Together, we’re navigating what’s next – creating and sharing powerful insights, actionable advice and providing extraordinary client care to move businesses forward.”
Tarlow Managing Partner Adam Venokur will join Aprio as Northeast Regional Managing Partner.
“We vetted several firms and Aprio quickly proved to be a like-minded partner that shared our values and culture,” Venokur said. “We anticipate a seamless transition for our clients who will continue to receive exceptional personal service and a wider breadth of professional services to accelerate their growth and profitability.”
Jeffrey Kapelus, President of Capstone Solutions, advised Aprio and Tarlow on the transaction. “Knowing both firms and the respective managing partners closely, the synergies between the two were obvious and abundant,” said Kapelus. “I was confident the pairing would be a strategic fit for both firms, providing growth opportunities for Tarlow’s clients and team members and furthering Aprio’s disciplined and strategic growth objectives.”
The Tarlow team members will have access to new opportunities for personal development and advancement. Aprio is regularly featured in top workplace lists and is a top-ranked CPA firm on Glassdoor. All former Tarlow partners and team members will continue to operate from their New York office as Aprio.
Since 2013, Aprio has combined with ten strategically chosen firms, four in 2020 alone, as part of their initiative focusing on targeted expansion, and the firm plans to continue to make strategic combinations in the years ahead.
