Two Kansas City accounting firms merge to offer unparalleled expertise in the real estate sector

Kansas City, Mo. - MarksNelson accounting and consulting firm is expanding for the second time this year through the acquisition of Overland Park, Kan., accounting firm Marsh & Company. Marsh & Company employees will be integrated into MarksNelson's Kansas City, Mo. headquarters on January 1, 2016.

"This acquisition is right on target with our strategic growth plan. We are eager to welcome our new colleagues as we join forces to provide our clients a broader level of expertise to realize their business and financial goals," said MarksNelson Managing Member Mark Radetic. "With our expanded range of services, we are able to give our clients more resources while providing assurance they'll still be working with the same people and receiving the same high level of service they've always received."

Led by Managing Partner Michael Marsh, CPA, Marsh & Company has become a leading tax credit consultant and audit service provider to real estate professionals, developers and historic preservationists in the region.

"Combining our team's extensive experience in working with developers and owners of historical and low-income housing tax credit properties, and MarksNelson's significant state and local tax and real estate expertise, we're able to provide current and future clients with an unparalleled level of service in the region," said Marsh, who will become a Member at MarksNelson along with Christine Johnston.
