Briggs & Veselka Co. (Houston), Glass & Company, Announce Merger in Austin

Briggs & Veselka Co., the fourth largest independent accounting firm in the state, and Glass & Company, a top CPA firm in Austin, have announced their merger. This is the fifth transaction that Briggs & Veselka has made in the past 12 months, and will bolster the firm’s presence in the capital city.

Glass & Company Partners Hal Miller and Larry Dodson will become shareholders of Briggs & Veselka, and it is expected that all employees will be part of the merged group.  In early 2018, Briggs & Veselka acquired Bill Love CPAs in Austin, and the integration of the two Austin offices will occur in the near future.

“The merger with Glass & Company will deepen our industry expertise in banking, healthcare, nonprofits, and technology & software, as well provide an even stronger audit and tax departments,” said Sheila Enriquez, Managing Shareholder of Briggs & Veselka.  “The combined firms will offer an even better option for middle market companies in Central Texas who have more complex business and compliance needs,” she added.  “Shared culture is a major driver of our firms coming together, and I know that the leaders and the people of Glass & Company can embrace our values of excellence, dedication and compassion,” said Enriquez.

“We have known the leadership of Briggs & Veselka through professional organizations and peer reviews, and have always admired the quality of their work and their people,” said Hal Miller, President of Glass & Company.  “Now that we’re joining forces, our people and our clients will have more options and solutions to help them grow,” he added. 

Terms of the transaction were not released.
