Porter Keadle Moore Merges in Holbrook Hicks

Porter Keadle Moore (PKM) of Atlanta has merged in the firm Holbrook Hicks and Associates LLC of Atlanta. The move adds six people to PKM, including Veronica Hicks, who will arrive as partner. It also establishes a second location for the firm. The transaction was effective Jan. 1.

“This merger is an excellent fit,” says PKM MP Phil Moore. “It strengthens our audit, tax preparation and executive consulting services, as well as our small business outreach. It gives Veronica’s clients a wider array of service offerings, while the associates at her firm will receive more resources and potential for professional growth.”

“I’ve known PKM for several years – it is a great firm with a strong reputation,” says Hicks. “It has a very upbeat, positive atmosphere and we share the same philosophy about treating clients and staff responsibly and with respect.”

PKM is based in downtown Atlanta in the Peachtree Center area. The Holbrook Hicks office, located in the Sandy Springs/Perimeter area of Metro Atlanta, will remain open as a branch office of PKM.

Holbrook Hicks serves clients in a variety of closely held business sectors including insurance, employee benefit plans and manufacturing as well as service industries and nonprofit organizations.
