Walthall CPAs and Rea & Associates to Merge

New Philadelphia, Ohio-based Rea & Associates Inc. (FY16 net revenue of $40.6 million) will merge with the Cleveland-based Walthall CPAs, effective Nov. 1. The merger will feature a team of more than 300 professionals who serve clients from 13 offices across the state of Ohio.

“When you look at how long Walthall has been around, where the firm is situated in the state and their strong community-minded and client service-focused culture, bringing our two firms together just makes sense,” says Don McIntosh, CEO of Rea & Associates.

“If you’ve worked with the Walthall team in the past, you’ll be glad to learn that this merger will have no impact on your fees or on the quality of service,” says Richard Lash, MP of Walthall. “Our client service teams will stay intact and you will continue to receive the stellar service we’ve always taken great pride in providing. Only now, we will be able to offer a wider array and greater depth of services.”
