The 2017 year is here and LBA Haynes Strand has rang the proverbial growth bell again! For the past 4 months, LBA Haynes Strand has been working to complete a deal with, Ballantyne based CPA Firm, McArthur, McKeiver and Vaughan, PLLC to unite as one combined firm. The combination will add three Principals to the LBA Haynes Strand team with the additions of Brad McKeiver, Steve Vaughan, and Patrick Coleman. This will increase the total of Principals to 13 and number of employees to 80 across the three North Carolina offices of the Firm. The Firm will continue to operate under the LBA Haynes Strand, PLLC name, where the three incoming principals and the incoming staff members from McArthur, McKeiver, & Vaughan will join the Firm in the Matthews, NC office of LBA Haynes Strand.
McArthur, McKeiver, & Vaughan has been a part of the Charlotte community for over three decades, since its inception in 1978. The mission of the firm was always to deliver pro-active and client-centered services to its clients aimed at adding value and helping their clients reach their goals. These same ideals of being proactive and client-centric are pillars of LBA Haynes Strand, thus creating a unified Firm culture. The addition of McArthur, McKeiver, & Vaughan will add not only a strong culture piece to the LBA Haynes Strand Firm, but also a strong dental accounting and consulting practice, a forensic accounting offering, and a profitability consulting service offering.
John Bly, Principal, CEO of LBA Haynes Strand had this to say regarding the combination, “We are thrilled to be able to add such a strong team of talented and driven Principals to LBA Haynes Strand. The additions of Brad, Patrick, and Steve to our Matthews office is a natural fit for us as we seek to grow our Firm and grow the service offerings that we can offer our clients. We strive to become a one stop shop for all middle market business owners’ accounting and financial needs in North Carolina and the Southeastern US. The ability to ring in the New Year with such an exciting announcement can be attributed to both Firm’s hard work and dedication to a unified vision of what a modern accounting firm should be.”
In addition, LBA Haynes Strand recently announced the acquisition of Dave Recchion and SeeRisk Management Advisors out of High Point, NC. Dave Recchion joined the Greensboro office as a Principal on December 1, 2016.
