Reading-based Herbein + Co, Inc. (Herbein), a Mid Atlantic regional certified public accounting firm, announced the acquisitions, effective Jan. 1, of CPA advisory firms Cappelletti, Pinter & Company, P.C., and The LaMastra Group, P.C.
Based in Pottstown, Cappelletti, Pinter & Company, is led by Matthew Cappelletti, Jr., CPA, who will join Herbein as a senior consultant. The firm, consisting of Cappelletti and four team members, provides services in Pottstown and Greater Montgomery County.
The LaMastra Group, based in Royersford, is led by Carl A. LaMastra, CPA, who will join Herbein as a partner. The firm, consisting of LaMastra and two team members, provides services throughout Greater Montgomery County.
Herbein re-established its presence in Greater Montgomery County in 2016, with the acquisition of Pottstown-based Michael L. Cross & Co. Herbein Managing Partner David W. Stonesifer, CPA, said that the combinations reflect the firm’s commitment to continuing to invest in the region.
“Greater Montgomery County is a dynamic, prosperous area with numerous vibrant communities,” said Stonesifer. “Since our combination with Michael L. Cross & Company, we have consistently looked for opportunities to further our commitment to the area. Now, we are delighted to welcome Cappelletti, Pinter & Company and The LaMastra Group – firms that share our values and client-centric approach – into the fast-growing Herbein family. Like Herbein, Cappelletti, Pinter & Company and The LaMastra Group help a wide-ranging client base achieve their goals. We’re excited to be joining forces to help businesses across the region succeed with confidence in these uncertain times.”
In the last year, Herbein has added 2 firms – Morgantown HR consulting firm Mosteller & Associates, and Lehigh Valley CPA firm Tubiello-Harr & Associates – while continuing to look for like-minded firms and professionals who can help build on strategic plans for continued growth, a Herbein statement said.
“While we are growing quickly, we are committed to maintaining our culture and have always been very strategic about who we invite to join our team,” said Herbein CFO Joseph J. Witkowski. “We are known across our communities as one of Mid Atlantic’s most-trusted accounting, tax and business consulting firms, so we are excited to welcome two very well-respected practices into the Herbein family. Our cultures and values are well-aligned, and we share the same entrepreneurial, trusted approach to doing business.”
Both Pottstown teams will remain at their current locations. The LaMastra Group will remain at its present location in Royersford.
