We have announced today our merger with Chicago-based accounting firm Caramagno & Associates (C&A).
Maria Sentic, CPA and Chief Operations Officer at Tavola Group said, “We were looking for a firm that shared the same values we do and had been looking for an opportunity to combine with a firm like Caramagno & Associates.” Taking a holistic approach with a client-centric focus, we aim to continue serving all clients with the same services combined with the extended expertise of both teams.
As we recently refreshed our positioning and brand, we are excited about this milestone, “We’re a great fit for professional service businesses and are looking forward to this next phase of growth,” says Maria Sentic.
We provide various services, including business accounting, tax preparation, estate planning, recruiting, and supporting IRS audits. We also offer business consulting, helping plan for life changes like marriage and retirement. In addition, we have a dedicated business brokerage division, assisting people to buy or sell businesses, and we are experts in business valuation and assessing operations. We bring businesses together to ensure easy collaboration and success for all parties.
Caramagno & Associates principal Michael Caramagno says, “Tavola Group shares our commitment to partnering with clients for strategic planning to help them achieve their goals, going beyond mere compliance.”
C&A has been a one-stop solution for tax preparation, bookkeeping, and business consulting needs like budgeting, projections, and operations advice since 2013. This merger is a big milestone towards C&A’s strategic goals, and partnering with a large firm will enable them to continue providing their clients with the best services.
The merger will bring us together under our Tavola Group umbrella. Caramagno & Associates will transition over the next few months and merge their digital presence into ours, and C&A’s existing clients will be contacted and supported by our team.
