Fastest-growing firm expands national footprint with Colorado based firm
ATLANTA / DENVER – Aprio, LLP, the No. 1 Fastest-Growing Accounting Firm in the U.S., announced today that Colorado-based Gomerdinger & Associates, LLC will merge with the firm. Tax lead Partner Cindy Gomerdinger and 12+ team members will join Aprio effective July 1, 2023.
The strategic combination with Gomerdinger & Associates will enhance Aprio’s expansion with new market presence in Colorado, while building out national segments in real estate, government contracting, professional services, manufacturing, construction, and technology. The transaction also strengthens Aprio’s ability to provide an expanded range of services to Gomerdinger & Associates’ clients including digital transformation and cybersecurity, blockchain accounting, international tax and wealth management. The transaction marks another significant milestone in support of Aprio’s growth strategy, and it’s dynamic and inclusive culture as the firm continues to attract top talent, foster innovation and support community engagement through a client-centric approach.
“Denver is a market with a lot of opportunity and a city we have been pursuing for a long time – we’re excited to take the next step in our growth and expansion with a like-minded firm that is just as passionate for what’s next,” said Richard Kopelman, CEO and Managing Partner at Aprio. “This expansion is a key market for Aprio and serves as a major gateway to the West, and we’re looking forward to building on the strong foundation Cindy and her team have established.”
Gomerdinger & Associates offers a wide range of services to individual and business clients spanning financial advisory, tax and assurance. The Denver office will become part of Aprio’s West region, led by Tom Neff, West Coast Regional Leader. Aprio anticipates further expansion into additional markets as Denver becomes a major Aprio hub.
