CBIA president and CEO Chris DiPentima talks with CliftonLarsonAllen managing principal Joe Kask and the accounting firm's chief practice officer for the Northeast, James Watson, about key takeaways from the acquisition of blumshapiro.

Kask, the former CEO of blumshapiro, says many opportunities were created because of the January, 2021 merger—opportunities not just for employees, but for clients and communities.

“This firm accepted all of our employees as one of their own,” said Kask. “We share the same values, the same culture and the same commitments.”

Nationally, CLA has provided $1.1 million to community organizations focusing on education, employment, and entrepreneurship since the acquisition.
