Merging with established Mechanicsburg accounting firm
Waggoner, Frutiger & Daub expands services to clients
CAMP HILL, PA (January 4, 2017) – Effective January 1, Boyer & Ritter LLC proudly welcomes Mechanicsburg-based Waggoner, Frutiger & Daub in a merger that brings together two respected accounting firms with considerable talent and experience.
Waggoner Frutiger & Daub began its professional practice in Mechanicsburg in 1964 and shares Boyer & Ritter’s values and commitment to clients, community and staff. The 14 accounting professionals and support staff will now operate under the Boyer & Ritter name and relocate to Boyer & Ritter’s Camp Hill headquarters.
“This merger with Waggoner, Frutiger & Daub places Boyer & Ritter firmly on the path to be the premiere accounting firm in central Pennsylvania,’’ said Boyer & Ritter CEO Robert J. Murphy, CPA, CVA/ABV. “Waggoner, Frutiger & Daub has a well-deserved, excellent reputation and its people will be valued members of our team.’’
Murphy said the merger will allow Boyer & Ritter dedicate additional resources to small businesses, nonprofits, governments and in the area of employee benefit plan audits. Similar to Boyer & Ritter, the professionals from Waggoner, Frutiger & Daub focus on tax and management consulting services to closely-held businesses.
Boyer & Ritter will be gaining the expertise of 14 professionals, including Managing Partner Ray Brown, who will become a principal with Boyer & Ritter.
“We chose to merge into Boyer & Ritter because of the remarkable similarities between our firms and because we believe that a larger organization will allow us to provide a wider array of services and more depth,’’ Brown said. “Becoming part of Boyer & Ritter will also mean our associates will benefit from even more and stronger career opportunities.’’
In 2016, Boyer & Ritter was recognized as one of the top 27 firms in the list of regional leaders in the Mid-Atlantic by Accounting Today Magazine. Boyer & Ritter was one of only four in the Commonwealth included in the list, which looks at top firms in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
“We take pride in our reputation of providing the best services to our clients. The decision to merge Waggoner Frutiger & Daub into the Boyer & Ritter family was done only after long and careful consideration on both sides,’’ Murphy said. “We believe this merger is a win-win for our clients as well as the professionals from both firms who are coming together to make a truly outstanding team.’’
