Burr Pilger Mayer Aquires CBIZ’s San Jose Unit

San Francisco-based Burr Pilger Mayer Inc. (FY09 net revenue of $64.8 million) has agreed to acquire the San Jose, Calif., accounting and tax operations of Cleveland-based CBIZ Inc.

“This acquisition will enhance our ability to serve our current South Bay clients, and give us an opportunity to continue to meet the needs of CBIZ’s clients,” says BPM CEO Steve Mayer.

CBIZ’s San Jose accounting and tax staff will move into BPM’s San Jose office – one of BPM’s six offices around the Bay Area. CBIZ will maintain its San Jose office for other services, such as employee benefits consulting and property and casualty insurance.

“The accounting and tax group in San Jose is excited to join BPM, a firm with a similar and compatible culture,” says Jim Babcock, managing director of CBIZ in San Jose.
