LBA Haynes Strand is excited to announce the acquisition of the Asheboro office of Cherry Bekaert LLP. With this acquisition, we will expand our firm’s footprint to maintain the Asheboro office location. With nearly 80 professionals across North Carolina, clients will have access to local resources and immediate support.
“Our firm has been focused on the middle market client base for more than three decades,” said LBA Haynes Strand CEO and Principal, John Bly. “We are excited for the opportunity to add quality team members in the Asheboro market, along with a strong client base. This is the next step in our firm’s growth plan.”
Cherry Bekaert partner, Brad Crumpler, has announced his retirement and will assist our firm through the transition period. Elizabeth Scott (Senior Associate) and Donna Smith (Administrative Assistant) will be joining the LBA Haynes Strand team.
Principal Chris Bunting will continue to lead the firm’s assurance department while principals Dave Recchion and Courtney Ageon will build and maintain local relationships in the Asheboro community. In addition, the Greensboro office team will be readily available to support all client needs.
Since its inception, the focus of LBA Haynes Strand has been to become a partner in our clients’ success. Cherry Bekaert clients will be able to continue working with high quality professionals committed to delivering excellent client service.
LBA Haynes Strand expanded into Winston-Salem in January 2019 and looks to grow more across North Carolina and the southeast.
