Elk Grove Village, IL, December 13, 2016 —Porte Brown LLC, a rapidly expanding Chicago area accounting and consulting firm, is pleased to announce its recent merger with Borhart Spellmeyer & Company, LLC of Elgin.
The merger, effective December 1, extends Porte Brown’s presence in the Northwest suburban market and builds upon the depth of accounting and advisory services available to clients. The professionals from Borhart Spellmeyer, now operating under the Porte Brown name, will continue to service clients in their current office located near the I-90 / Randall Road corridor.
Since its founding in 1989, by Len Borhart and Robert Spellmeyer, Borhart Spellmeyer has offered a wide range of financial, accounting and consulting services to closely held businesses and their entrepreneur owners within the Fox Valley and extended Chicago communities. Over the years the firm has built a strong reputation for developing close partnerships with clients that extend well beyond the traditional client/CPA framework.
“We have known the professionals of Borhart Spellmeyer for a very long time,” said Bruce Jones, Managing Partner of Porte Brown. “In fact, we were both part of the same best practices group and realized early on we had a lot of similar philosophies in our approach to client service and a shared emphasis on professional development. This is a great opportunity to bring together some of the best multi-disciplinary professionals in our field and leverage their talents to the advantage of our clients.”
