A longtime and well-known accountant in the Lehigh Valley is merging his practice with another firm.
Owned by William Goodman, Goodman CPA on Nazareth Road in Easton is merging with Werner & Co. on Brookside Road in Wescosville.
Goodman said that at the age of 71, it was time to join forces with another firm.
"I realize I'm mortal, but I want to continue practicing for at least another 10 years, so it was time to infuse some young blood," Goodman said. "They have similar attitudes and services, and we're very compatible."
Werner's staff of eight includes Certified Public Accountants, other accountants and bookkeepers. The CPAs are Kristofer M. DePaolo, Joshua Panto, Andrew J. Werner and Elizabeth Lischner.
Goodman said he started looking for another CPA firm several months ago. He said he chose Werner & Co. because not only would the firm continue his efforts, he thought that firm's offerings best complemented his existing services.
"We have services they can use, and they have services our clients can use," Goodman said. "Our expanding clientele requires a wider range of services than we provided in the past."
Goodman said both firms have extensive experience in accounting, reporting and governance of not-for-profit organizations, medical services, retail and manufacturing.
Both offices will remain open in their existing locations, and their contact information will remain the same.
