Venning & Jacques, Inc., one of the most respected accounting and tax firms in Central Massachusetts, recently announced an ownership change and rebranding of the firm as Venning. This strategic move marks a significant milestone in the firm’s growth and evolution, positioning it for even greater success in the future.
The firm merged with Agawam, Massachusetts-based accounting firm, Corbin & Tapases on September 27. The staff and clients of Corbin will join under the new Venning brand.
The combination of the two firms may result in the “largest minority-owned CPA in the United States,” said Hannah Paige Michels, the marketing manager at Venning. “Our ownership is made up of minorities, so focusing on empowering minority communities and employing minorities at Venning is encompassed in our mission.”
Operating since 1978, the reputation of Venning & Jacques is cemented on the quality of its professional services and the diverse expertise of its people. The rebranding to Venning, finalized in October, represents a bold step forward as the firm plans to expand its service offerings to better serve members of the community, and looks to strategically acquire other like-minded firms and staff members.
“We are thrilled to announce the ownership change and rebranding of our firm as Venning,” said Jerry Bankowski, CPA, outgoing President and Shareholder of Venning & Jacques, Inc. “This exciting development represents our commitment to growth and innovation while remaining dedicated to the principles of trust, professionalism, and community that have been at the core of our practice for decades.”
Key highlights of the rebranded Venning include:
- Expanded Service Offerings: In addition to traditional accounting and tax services, Venning now offers an expanded range of services, including comprehensive payroll, seamless 401(k) for businesses and their employees, transaction advisory services, and general CFO services.
- Streamlined Operations: The acquisition and rebranding also comes with new, innovative technology that streamlines the firm’s operations and processes, enabling a more efficient approach to clients’ needs.
- Commitment to Excellence: Among its broadened offering of services, the firm’s commitment to excellence remains unchanged. Venning retains the best and brightest talent with a people-first culture that powers exclusive expertise. Clients, partners, and employees can expect a seamless transition as the firm begins operating under the name “Venning.”
- Community-forward Focus: Just like its founders, Venning continues to strengthen its cornerstone of community through meaningful action in local community affairs and aims to become the largest minority-owned and operated CPA firm in the United States.
