Albany CPA Firm Expands with Acquisition, New Office

Wojeski & Co. of Albany, N.Y., has a new office and new employees following its acquisition of DeChants Fuglein & Johnson LLP of Latham, N.Y.

The acquisition added eight CPAs to Wojeski & Co.’s team, bringing the firm to 22 CPAs and 40 employees. Diane Fuglein and David Johnson have joined Wojeski as principals.

Additionally, Wojeski moved to a larger, newly renovated office at 159 Wolf Road that is designed to give the firm more space to grow, according to the Albany Business Review. The firm can add 10 to 15 more employees before it needs more space.

“We’re pleased to be partnering with DeChants Fuglein & Johnson,” says founding partner David Wojeski. “I’ve known the current partners for many years. They are true professionals who share our firm’s values of client service, technical expertise and integrity. This partnership will strengthen both firms and add value to all of our clients without impacting our unique culture.”

Principals in both firms sought out the alliance because “a larger organization will allow us to provide a wider array of services to our clients…and will also allow our associates to benefit from stronger career opportunities,” according to a statement.

Wojeski’s practice focuses on technology companies, credit unions, construction contractors and other businesses. DeChants Fuglein & Johnson’s practice focused on smaller businesses, including professionals and physicians, nonprofits and construction.
