Armanino LLP has announced the acquisition of Holtzman Partners, set to be rebranded under the Armanino name with the addition of a second office in Austin, effective January 1 2022.
According to Armanino, the transaction brings a firm that shares its recognition of the need for “sophisticated” tax, audit and consulting solutions in one of the “fastest-growing” markets in the US, in addition to sharing a vision of the future of business.
The firm has said Holtzman clients will have access to an “expanded suite” of accounting and consulting offerings to support any stage of company growth.
Armanino also said its tax practice can provide “on-demand expertise” on a multitude of issues, including international tax, transfer pricing, transaction advisory and partnerships and qualified business income.
Matt Armanino, CEO of Armanino LLP, said: “Adding Holtzman is the natural next step of our investment in the Austin community given its entrepreneurial vision, commitment to innovation and its values when it comes to high-touch client service and its people-first culture.”
Chris Perkins, managing partner at Holtzman, added: “As a firm focused on the future and what clients need both today and tomorrow, we see the advantage Armanino brings to our current clients and the Austin business community.
“Armanino shares in our values of putting our clients and people first, and we look forward to providing new career paths for our team of professionals to grow and deepen their expertise by working alongside an expanded team of industry experts.”
Perkins will assume the role of central Texas market leader and lead Armanino’s offices in Austin.
