Herbein + Company, Inc. Announces Acquisition

Pittsburgh, PA (August 1, 2014):  Herbein + Company, Inc. and Braund Eiler & Vasko (BEV), jointly announce that Herbein has acquired BEV effective immediately.

Herbein + Company, Inc. is one of Pennsylvania’s leading regional certified public accounting firms with 150+ employees in offices in Pittsburgh, Greensburg, Reading, Camp Hill, Exton and Allentown.

BEV is a nine-person firm located in Allison Park, and all operations will remain in that Route 8 location which becomes Herbein’s seventh office.  Herbein Senior Manager, David Cordier, CPA, MST, who has been based in the Pittsburgh office since 2001, will lead the Allison Park office.

BEV Founding Partner, Blair Eiler, CPA, has announced his retirement and states “BEV started as a traditional tax and accounting firm decades ago and thanks to our talented staff; it’s grown into the multi-dimensional firm it is today.  Many of our clients have been with us for several decades, and while I’ll miss working with them personally, I know that Herbein is the right team to take our clients into the future. Herbein’s commitment to helping area businesses grow and individuals succeed was a key factor in our decision.”

The majority of BEV’s staff including former BEV partner Larry Vasko, CPA will remain with the firm.  Vasko says, “We’re all looking forward to being part of a group with the experience and resources that Herbein brings to the table.”  Herbein will continue to offer tax, audit and accounting services, business consulting and payroll services from the Allison Park office.  “Our clients should find the transition to Herbein to be relatively seamless,” said Vasko.
