Rehmann Finalizes Acquisition of Veritas Global

Saginaw, Mich.-based Rehmann (FY09 net revenue of $72.9 million) acquired Veritas Global LLC, a firm that provides corporate investigative services and business intelligence.

Veritas was established in 2005 by former members of the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service and intelligence services along with professionals in the business reorganization, mergers and acquisition industry. Veritas provides corporate due diligence, business intelligence and analysis, and risk management services.

The acquisition is part of Rehmann’s efforts to expand its range of services in areas such as forensic accounting. Veritas will be merged into Rehmann with Kerby, Bailey and Associates, one of Rehmann’s subsidiaries. The combined entity will be renamed Rehmann Corporate Investigative Services. Current president Stephen Kerby will become the COO, and Gregory Suhajda of Veritas will become the president of the combined entity.
