Two highly reputable CPA firms, Breon & Associates, centered in Harrisburg, and Prussman-Goss, located in Wyomissing and Ephrata, have announced a strategic alliance that will enhance and elevate their accounting, tax, and litigation support services. The two firms plan to share resources and expertise seamlessly to reach more clients, helping them improve business efficiency, plan strategically and eliminate unnecessary losses. The alliance will emphasize litigation support, a specialty service the firms regularly provide for larger, publicly held companies. Yet, even if their talent and experience can “take the firm national,” the partners are still committed to offering small-town, personalize service.
Michael Breon, President of Breon & Associates, started building his firm after a long career serving in various roles in both public and private companies as well as in public accounting. His experience and professional skills help him provide clients with valuable insights. Mikes’ credentials include being a Certified Public Accountant as well as a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). He believes the synergy between the two firms will be a boon for his business and individual clients. “The alliance means significantly expanded tax service for our clients. Given what PG brings to the table, my firm will now be able to tackle much more complex tax work and detailed tax planning.” Mike also covets the expertise PG has in business valuations and anticipates being able to offer more extensive service in this key area.
For their part, Lee Prussman and David Goss see clear advantages to the relationship with Breon. “Mike’s reputation in the Harrisburg area is stellar,” says Lee, himself a CPA with more than 35 years of experience. “What he’s got going is years of experience for major accounting houses across a variety of industries. Mike’s knowledge is vast, but he deals with clients on an immediate, personal level.” David concurs. Like Mike, David is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner, but he’s also certified in Financial Forensics. “Industry specific knowledge and insights, coupled with a desire to help people do better. It’s a great combination.”
The principals have worked together informally for a number of years providing litigation support for private law firms and law enforcement and managing complex tax cases. All principals have significant skills related to internal audit, as well as fraud prevention, detection and investigation. Each side owns a separate company dedicated to exposing internal fraud and other malfeasance. For Breon, that company is Pertrolance, LLC; for Prussman-Goss, it’s North American Forensic Accounting, PC. “Forensics and fraud detection/prevention are enormously important today,” David Goss stresses. “Businesses are surviving on very thin margins these days and simply can’t afford to have cash walk out the door. We can identity where the losses are coming from and essentially plug the hole.”
Mike Breon has focused a tremendous amount of his professional energy on rooting out fraud and training professionals to do likewise. Partnering with Prussman-Goss is going to “put our antifraud activity on steroids,” and “let us provide robust litigation support to many more large companies who need trustworthy assistance in this crucial, specialty area.” Breon believes that “Together, our experience is unsurpassed in the greater central PA marketplace, and if fact, is in demand throughout the country. This strategic alliance is going to provide really robust resources for businesses that truly want to improve efficiency and gain a greater understanding of how processes influence profits.”
