Rochester Acquisition Results in Collaborative Opportunities for New and Future Talent
Bowers' Managing Partners, Mike D'Avirro, CPA, and Carl Austin, CPA, are excited to announce they will be expanding Bowers' Rochester presence through its merger of Kasperski Dinan & Rink CPAs, and partnership with Tracey Rink, CPA, and Rick Kasperski, CPA effective January 1, 2024.
This strategic collaboration marks a significant milestone in our journey, combining both firms' strengths, expertise, and resources. Together, we look forward to delivering enhanced services and even greater value to our clients. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and the synergies that will undoubtedly benefit our clients and stakeholders.
Founding Principles of Kasperski Dinan & Rink CPAs: Trust, Integrity, and Client Relationships
Tracey Rink and Rick Kasperski founded their practice 20 years ago to provide services based on trust and integrity while fostering meaningful relationships with clients.
"Joining Bowers will allow us to expand our operational capacity, along with providing additional resources to assist our current and future clients," Rick said. "We see a deep value alignment with Bowers and a matched level of commitment to clients, service, and relationships that have guided our practice over the decades."
"Although our name was updated to Bowers CPAs & Advisors, Tracey and I will remain stationed at the office as Partners, supporting our clients and our team as we enter a new era," Rick closed.
Team Expansion and Talent Acquisition in Rochester
Bowers is proud to announce recent key additions to our Rochester team.
Ryan Kretchmer, CPA, has been promoted to the position of partner in the Rochester office. A Rochester native and graduate of SUNY Geneseo, Ryan brings more than 25 years of experience and expertise as a tax professional working with businesses in many different industries as well as high-net-worth individuals.
We also welcomed four highly skilled staff accountants this past week.
The Bowers Rochester Office not only presents remarkable opportunities for business growth and acquiring new clients but also plays a pivotal role in our strategic recruitment efforts.
Bowers always looks to hire and develop exceptional talent. Our expansion in Rochester opens exciting avenues for collaboration with top-notch interns from esteemed institutions such as SUNY Geneseo, SUNY Brockport, Keuka College, St. John Fisher, RIT, and the University of Rochester.
Our firm has a well-established and robust internship program in our Syracuse and Watertown offices. We are excited to extend the same enriching experience to the talented individuals in Rochester come spring 2024, when we will bring on seven interns from these local institutions.
Established in 1977, Bowers CPAs & Advisors was founded with a mission to provide individuals and businesses in Upstate NY with the same top-notch services offered by national accounting firms, coupled with a personalized small-firm approach. Over the years, our firm has undergone remarkable growth, evolving from a modest team of fewer than ten employees to our current size of more than 120 employees and counting.
What sets Bowers apart is our unique commitment. Despite our substantial growth, all Firm Partners reside in Central and Northern New York. This distinctive aspect reflects our dedication to investing in the communities where we work, live and continue to foster growth, development, and excellence in the accounting profession.
