BerryDunn Merges with Rodman CPAs

Waltham, MA and Portland, ME... BerryDunn is proud to announce its merger with Massachusetts-based Rodman CPAs. As of July 1, 2019, the combined firm will conduct its practice as BerryDunn. 

One of Massachusetts’ top CPA and business advisory firms, Rodman has about 40 employees. Combining Rodman with BerryDunn’s 400+ employees comprises one of the largest such firms headquartered in New England.  

Rodman CPAs was founded in 1961 and has experienced steady growth over the past 58 years, predominantly stemming from the referrals of its client base. Having attracted high-quality, committed professionals, the firm has become known for its friendly, personalized service.

“We decided to seek a merger with another firm because we believe that a larger organization will allow us to provide a wider array of services and more depth. A larger organization will also mean our associates will benefit from additional career opportunities,” said Steven Rodman, Principal in charge of BerryDunn’s Waltham office. Steve added, “We chose BerryDunn for the values we share of great client service and a commitment to attracting, developing, and retaining the highest quality people.”  

Five Rodman partners will become BerryDunn Principals. Included are Steve Rodman, Kathy Parker, Bob Leonard, Mark Minassian, and Leah Shanahan.

BerryDunn’s Managing Partner, John Chandler, comments, “This business combination fits perfectly with our strategic expansion, increasing our ability to serve the greater Boston market. Most of BerryDunn’s growth has come organically from great client service and referrals. For a merger to be right for us, we look for a partner firm that adds value beyond numbers. We are excited by the new team members and capabilities that will perfectly complement ours. In addition to a healthy tax practice, Rodman brings a nationally recognized renewable energy expertise and a unique, concierge model of accounting outsourcing that will expand how we can serve our client base.”
