Two Virginia Firms Combine Forces

Newport News, Va.-based Witt Mares and PBGH LLP, with four locations in the state, will merge effective Jan. 1. Combined, the new company will have almost 200 professionals in eight locations in Virginia. With the exception of a combination of the firms’ offices in Fairfax, no offices will close and staff will remain in place.

Alan Witt will be named as CEO, and will be based in Newport News, Va. Keith Wampler will be named chairman of the board and will be based in Fredericksburg, Va.

“To expand our footprint across the state with this strategic merger will provide both firms with momentum to expand further throughout the Mid-Atlantic,” said Keith Wampler, MP of PBGH, in a release.
