Phoenix, AZ – January 1, 2016 – BeachFleischman PC, one of Arizona’s largest locally-owned CPA firms, is proud to announce a merger with Scottsdale-based Cervantes CPA Firm, P.C., effective January 1, 2016. The combined firms are practicing as BeachFleischman PC, and Cervantes CPA Firm’s employees, including 1 shareholder and 4 staff, have relocated to BeachFleischman’s 2201 E. Camelback Road office in Phoenix. The merger increases BeachFleischman’s Phoenix-based employee count to 29 and its firm-wide employee count to 148 client service and administrative professionals, including 22 shareholders and 70 CPAs.
