ENTERPRISE, Ala., September 9, 2021 – Top 25 nationally ranked CPA and advisory firm Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC (CRI) has increased its investment in the state of North Carolina, expanding its locations to serve clients there through the merger of Sharrard, McGee & Co., PA.
“Sharrard, McGee & Co. and CRI are like-minded in our commitment to our clients, our teams, and furthering our profession,” stated William H. Carr, chairman and managing partner of CRI. “Together we are forward-thinking, and the combination of their High Point and Greensboro offices with our other North Carolina locations helps leverage the vitality of our teams and resources to further enhance our client experience and technical expertise. We are excited to join this new and dynamic market, to get involved with the High Point and Greensboro communities, and eager to hit the ground running assisting clients.”
“CRI’s story of success is unparalleled in the accounting profession—in about 25 years, they have grown from a small local firm in Enterprise, Alabama, to a Top 25 powerhouse in the accounting and consulting profession.
