Abalos & Associates and Miller, Allen & Co. Merge with REDW

Certified Public Accountant Firm to be One of the Largest in the Southwest

Phoenix, AZ, October 04, 2012 --(PR.com)-- REDW, LLC, Abalos & Associates, PLLC, and Miller, Allen & Co., P.C, have announced that the three firms are combining. The consolidation under the REDW name offers clients of all three firms a broader set of resources and a more dynamic infrastructure that will support them and their ever evolving needs. Providing clients with the highest level of service will remain the top priority.

Mike Allen, principal-in-charge of the current REDW Phoenix office, expects the combination of the three firms in Phoenix to open up a host of growth opportunities. Allen noted that the professionals from each firm share REDW’s strong commitment to putting clients’ needs first, deep technical and industry expertise, business acumen, and a natural predisposition to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. “We look forward to enhancing our level of service, responsiveness and expertise to our clients in Arizona, California and the Southwest. These two firms share an incredible reputation in the Phoenix market. REDW is thrilled to have the opportunity to merge with them as the basis for our continued commitment to providing superior client service in the Southwest.”

Representatives from both Abalos & Associates and Miller, Allen & Co. stressed the significant importance that REDW’s cultural values played in the decision to combine resources.

“Our clients are our top priority and our focus is helping them be successful now and in the future. We will continue to put their needs first as we work to provide them with the best services and resources available,” said Sandra A. Abalos, CPA, managing partner of Abalos & Associates. "We are excited to join forces with REDW and Miller, Allen, two firms just as committed as we are to strong values, including family, community and integrity. This is a perfect strategic partnership."

Miller, Allen & Co. Principal Steve Harris noted that REDW shares their deep commitment to serve clients. “With this union, our services complement each other. REDW offers additional services and greater depth of resources that resonate with the clients we serve as they become increasingly sophisticated and complex. Partnering with REDW allows us to take our ability to meet their needs to the next level while still providing the personal service our clients depend on.”

All employees of the three firms will be offered employment in the combined firm. The firms will continue to operate out of their existing locations until later this fall when the new REDW Phoenix office, located at 5353 North 16th Street, opens. The office, led by Allen, Harris and Abalos, will be home to more than 50 team members, increasing REDW’s overall Southwestern presence to nearly 200 employees.
