Henry & Horne Acquires Pittman & Murdough

Tempe, Ariz.-based Henry & Horne LLP (FY14 net revenue of $20.4 million) announced the acquisition of Pittman & Murdough PLLC of Phoenix. The merger became effective Jan. 1.

John Murdough joins Henry & Horne as PIC of the firm’s new construction niche. This brings the number of partners to 15. Michael Gatson comes on board as partner emeritus, and Laureen Song is taking on the role of director of construction industry services. Three other team members will join the firm. All will be based out of the Scottsdale, Ariz., location.

Pittman & Murdough has been serving the Arizona business community for 25 years and is well known in the construction industry. Combined, the two firms have more than 80 years of experience in the accounting profession.

“We are extremely excited about their very strong presence in the construction industry. Combining that expertise along with both firms’ highly skilled and technical team members means we’re going to be able to offer our current and future clients an even higher level of service,” says Henry & Horne co-MPs Chuck Goodmiller and Chuck Inderieden.

“When we decided that it would be in the best, long-term interests of our clients and team members to join forces with a larger firm, Henry & Horne was at the top of our list of candidates. The firm is not only well known in the community for adhering to the highest standards of quality in the core service areas of audit, accounting and tax, but also for being a strong, family-oriented firm that is a great place to work,” says John Murdough, principal, Pittman & Murdough.
