Doeren Mayhew Makes Second Houston Acquisition

Troy, Mich.-based Doeren Mayhew (FY11 net revenue of $42.05 million),  acquired MFR of Houston. Effective immediately, the merged entity will operate as Doeren Mayhew. In 2010 DM acquired TR Moore and Co.

MFR co-founders Roland Rodriguez and Gasper Mir will become Doeren Mayhew advisory board members, providing strategic guidance, and both will continue to own and manage affiliates MFR Solutions and MFR Healthcare Solutions.

“Driving our decision to move forward with this merger was our strong commitment to provide a higher level of sophisticated expertise to our clients,” says Mark Crawford, Doeren Mayhew chairman and MP. “Combining these two groups of extremely talented and experienced professionals not only continues to increase our national reach and local presence in the Houston market space, but provides our clients across the nation with resources to grow with them as they look to expand.”

Rodriguez also cites as reasons for the merger the region’s favorable business climate, access to Doeren Mayhew’s international network of affiliated accounting firms through Moore Stephens, and the growth potential and positive impact on staff and clients.
