Tuscon, AZ-based BeachFleischman recently said that Nogales, AZ-based Jeong Lizardi joined the top 200 accounting firm on Nov. 1.
As part of the deal, Jeong Lizardi will practice as BeachFleischman and continue to operate from its existing office in Nogales. In addition, BeachFleischman gained 10 client service and administrative professionals, including co-founder Leonard Lizardi, who was named a tax principal and managing principal of the Nogales office.
“Jeong Lizardi complements our client service capabilities and aligns well with our growth strategies in the Southwest and U.S.-Mexico cross-border regions,” Eric Majchrzak, CEO of BeachFleischman, said in a press release. “Most importantly, we gained new colleagues who are passionate about collaboration, helping clients, and supporting one another.”
Founded in 1983, Jeong Lizardi is an accounting and business advisory services firm that offers tax planning and tax preparation services, full accounting and auditing services, and business management and advisory services to individuals, as well as family owned businesses and large business entities with multiple locations. The firm also has extensive experience and expertise in international taxation and provides specialized tax and business advisory services to its border-industry clients.
“We are excited about the opportunities for our valued clients and employees. By joining forces with BeachFleischman, we can continue to provide superior service while enriching our client relationships with expanded offerings and industry knowledge,” said Leonard Lizardi. “Additionally, our employees can continue to pursue rewarding careers in a firm with a similar culture and shared values.”
The deal with Jeong Lizardi follows BeachFleischman’s recent majority stake acquisition of Mexico-based company Kuadra Support, which offers bookkeeping and back-office support, as well as outsourcing, employee leasing, and staffing solutions to U.S. businesses.
BeachFleischman, which had revenue of $37.8 million during its most recent fiscal year, now has three Arizona office locations: Tuscon, Nogales, and Phoenix.
