Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC (CRI), expands in Louisiana by merging local CPA firm Gurtner Zuniga Abney. CRI retains the current personnel and will be operating offices located in both New Orleans and Mandeville. With CRI’s existing practice, the combined offices now represent one of the largest CPA practices in the greater New Orleans area.
Gurtner Zuniga Abney has served the greater New Orleans area for nearly a decade by providing a broad range of accounting and advisory services to both business and individual clients. Specifically, the firm delivers highly specialized expertise in the sectors of governments, healthcare, and real estate.
“Our firm has grown exponentially in the last decade due to our proactive consultative approach and client service focus,” stated Tom Gurtner, managing partner of Gurtner Zuniga Abney. “Joining the super-regional firm of CRI, who is just as focused on growth, is a match of business philosophies and cultures. Plus, this merger translates into an ability to increase efficiencies with access to back office support, technological solutions, and technical training that helps us spend our time on our top strength—serving and consulting with our clients.”
CRI, currently ranked as the 22nd largest accounting firm nationally, boasts offices in 21 markets throughout nine states across the South.
“Louisiana is a thriving epicenter for business growth, as evidenced by their rank late last year as sixth place overall in the ‘Top States Doing Business’ survey by Area Development Businesses,” stated William H. Carr, chairman and managing partner of CRI. “Welcoming the Gurtner Zuniga Abney team marks our fourth expansion in the New Orleans market in less than five years, displaying CRI’s commitment to proactively growing our firm to mirror the state’s growth and address the subsequent demand for high quality accounting and advisory expertise.”
