The Bonadio Group Merges with New York Firm

Bevilacqua & Co. of Orchard Park, N.Y., and Pittsford, N.Y.-based The Bonadio Group (FY14 net revenue of $68.3 million) have finalized an arrangement to become one firm, and will operate under the Bonadio name beginning Nov. 1.

The merger will add seven employees – including two partners – to The Bonadio Group, for a total of 135 Bonadio employees in western New York, and about 500 across the firm. The new Bonadio partners are John Bevilacqua and Susan Bevilacqua.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming the people, clients and friends of Bevilacqua & Co. to our firm,” says Tom Bonadio, CEO and MP of The Bonadio Group. “John and Susan are superb additions to our partnership, and the team they’ve assembled is top-notch. The result of this merger will help both Bevilacqua’s people and clients realize greater potential.”

“Of all the growth choices for our firm, merging with Bonadio makes sense on so many levels,” says John Bevilacqua, principal of Bevilacqua & Co. “We look forward to opening the door to so many more value-added services for our clients and advancement opportunities for our people.”
