Hodges, Jones and Mabry Merges with Brown, Edwards & Co.

Wytheville, Va.-based Hodges, Jones & Mabry has merged with Roanoke, Va.-based Brown, Edwards & Co.

About 15 employees with Hodges, Jones & Mabry will join the new firm, according to Brown Edwards spokeswoman Judy Duff. Hodges, Jones & Mabry will keep its Wytheville office but will merge its Blacksburg and Radford offices with Brown Edwards’ Blacksburg office, the Roanoke Times reported.

The merger coincides with a larger merger between Brown Edwards and Bristol, Va.-based Dent K. Burk Associates, with more than 60 employees. The new Brown Edwards will have nearly 300 associates across nine offices in the Roanoke and New River valleys, West Virginia and Tennessee, the newspaper reported.
