Enterprise, Ala.-based Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC (CRI) (FY12 net revenue of $111.3 million), expanded its reach into North Carolina by merging with Pittard, Perry & Crone, Inc. (FY12 net revenue of $12.7 million), an IPA Top 200 firm of Goldsboro, N.C.

“CRI’s aggressive growth plan has included expansion into the North Carolina market, and Pittard, Perry & Crone’s strong presence in the state coupled with their synergistic culture and values makes them a natural choice for our firm,” says William Carr, chairman and MP of CRI.

“Pittard, Perry & Crone’s partners and team members will strengthen CRI’s depth of industry experience in agribusiness, construction, government services, healthcare, and not-for-profits, while their team continues to deliver high quality accounting services—now with additional specialty accounting services also available.”
