Working together, MHM and CBIZ are the 10th largest accounting service provider in the country. The strong credibility, longstanding relationships, and active community presence of Berntson Porter combined with the national resources and personal service of MHM creates a dynamic union and presence in the Pacific Northwest and across the West Coast of the United States.
Andy Burczyk, MHM President stated, "We are thrilled to have the Berntson Porter team join our growing attest practice. Their practice lines up well with some of our existing strengths, especially in key verticals such as the Construction industry and Employee Benefit Plan Audits. We look forward to serving the needs of their existing clients under the MHM name, and creating new relationships in the Seattle market. I am confident we will see continued growth in the Pacific Northwest under the local leadership or Mary Actor.”
