Crow Shields Bailey Merger Featured in ASCPA Magazine

ASCPA May coverCrow Shields Bailey (CSB) managing partner Kenny Crow, CPA, authored an article about our recent merger experience with McKean and Associates for the Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants (ASCPA) magazine. As the number of CPA firm combinations continues to increase, our team wanted to offer advice to other firms on how to make similar partnerships successful.

Crow described five merger steps using the analogy of uniting in a marriage of ideals, including leadership buy in, timing, the onboarding process, transition challenges and the long-term benefits of merging.

“I feel it is imperative for our firm to continue growing. Growth, resulting from healthy mergers, enables us to recruit new talent, retain key team members and provide quality client service” said Crow. Read the full article in ASCPA’s May/June issue.
