The Democratized CPA firm adds Pierce & Company LLC, based in Palm Beach, Florida to their Platform CPA Firm
PALM BEACH, Fla., Aug. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dark Horse CPAs, a top accounting and tax firm serving small businesses and individuals across the nation, announces the addition of Mary Pierce, CPA, owner of Pierce & Company LLC, to the profession's only democratized CPA firm. Ms. Pierce brings with her over 25 years of experience working as an internal and external controller and CFO for SMBs. With this acquisition, Dark Horse CPAs expands their presence in the Florida market.
The deal adds deeper expertise in fractional CFO services as well as adding Profit First consulting to the array of services offered to small businesses. For Pierce & Company, the merger will provide more robust resources, in the areas of technology, staffing, firm administration, marketing, branding and access to deep expertise in a host of practice areas, to take their client service to the next level and scale their practice to new heights.
Speaking to the reasoning for merging her practice into Dark Horse, Mary remarked, "The first thing I noticed about Dark Horse was that the company has the same core values that we did, which was number one for me, so I felt confident that we'd be a good fit." Expanding more on the struggles of running her own firm, she explained, "Handling the admin side of the business was always tough, from doing my own bookkeeping, payroll and bill pay to leading every major function within the business. I'm very excited to be able to spend my time and energy serving clients instead of the business."
Looking toward this future, Mary stated, "Public accounting needs to change. To be more human to our to those inside the firm and to be more responsive to clients' unique situations and needs. Dark Horse believes, as do I, that work supports life as opposed to the other way around. Being surrounded by happy and engaged people translates into elevated client experiences and outcomes. I'm excited to see how we can uplevel our practice and become even better at helping our clients by leveraging the resources, relationships and varied expertise of the firm at large."
"Mary is a straight-shooter that gets to the core of what matters, for her team and her clients," says Chase Birky, CEO & co-founder of Dark Horse CPAs. "Having worked with companies both internally and externally in the capacity she has provides a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon, which her clients benefit from handsomely, that can't be learned any other way. And, being a Profit First Professional allows her to take her small business clients well beyond understanding their financials to helping them operate strategically and keep more of their hard-earned money. Great things are ahead for Mary and her team!"
