The Cleveland, Ohio-based accounting firm of Cohen & Company has joined The International Accounting Group (TIAG) as its newest independent member firm. This addition continues a significant growth trend TIAG is experiencing as a result of its recent North American expansion strategy.
Other U.S. firms to recently join TIAG include: Berdon LLP, a U.S. Top 30 firm in New York; GALLINA LLP, a U.S. Top 100 firm headquartered in Northern California; Mallette, a Top 10 Canadian firm in Quebec; Pritchard, Bieler, Gruver & Willison, PC in the Philadelphia metro area; and Dorfman Abrams Music LLC in Northern New Jersey.
“In working with TIAG over the past few years in their expansion efforts, and even more recently as a presenter at their International Conference in Miami, I know firsthand the dynamic nature of the TIAG alliance,” said Allan Koltin, CPA, a specialist in accounting firm mergers and acquisitions who worked with TIAG and Cohen & Company on this strategic move. “Both TIAG and Cohen & Company will benefit greatly from this relationship.”
“Our firm was founded on helping clients find new opportunities for their businesses,” said Randy Myeroff, CEO of Cohen & Company. “Joining TIAG not only provides new opportunities and resources for our clients as they expand their businesses nationally and around the globe, but, uniquely, also provides access to TAGLaw, a ‘sister’ alliance of highly respected law firms throughout the world. This will be a competitive advantage we can offer clients.”
“Adding a firm with the reputation of Cohen & Company is evidence of the value and strategic advantage TIAG provides to its members and their clients,” said Robert Sattin, President of TIAG. “More and more, we are hearing from firms who are looking for international relationships and who find that TIAG’s multidisciplinary approach, through our sister alliance TAGLaw, and high-caliber professional management are key differentiators in the marketplace. These are exciting times for TIAG and the TAG Alliances.”
Cohen & Company and its related entities have approximately 250 employees throughout its offices in Ohio, Wisconsin and Florida and is ranked in the top 100 CPA firms nationwide.
