Dean Dorton Allen Ford is expanding its presence outside the borders of Kentucky by merging in Massey Consulting, a full-service consulting firm specializing in accounting software products and services, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Massey Consulting’s team will join Dean Dorton’s technology consulting practice and expand Dean Dorton technology’s accounting software expertise, implementations and integrations. The merger will be effective January 1, 2019.
Over the last several months, Dean Dorton has announced several areas of expansion including very recently, the establishment of a new entity – Dean Dorton Wealth Management, as an independent, registered investment advisor offering a broad range of services including retirement planning, investment consulting, portfolio management and a host of other holistic financial planning services and Dean Dorton Technology launched a full-service cybersecurity practice.
Outside of Kentucky
For the first time in its history, the firm is stepping outside the bounds of state lines, indicating their vigilance for being true advisors to clients, no matter the location.
According to David Bundy, president and CEO of Dean Dorton, “Merging with Massey Consulting increases our robust accounting software solutions team and provides an opportunity to serve clients in a broader regional area as well as expanding our capabilities nationally.”
“Massey Consulting has had tremendous growth throughout the past 15 years in the Raleigh and greater Charlotte area,” noted Philip Massey, president of Massey Consulting. “With the combination of developing client needs and continuous growth, it was critical for us to find a way to continue providing high-quality service while providing clients with additional value through a broader range of specialty capabilities, advice and solutions. In addition, we want to offer more opportunities for our employees and referral partners who are the backbone of our business.”
“In assisting clients with accounting software selection and implementation first-hand we have seen companies flourish with an increased speed of every finance and accounting process, driving faster revenue and influencing timely conversations to improve performance. We look forward to continuing to serve organizations from nonprofits to large public entities and provide innovative financial and business strategies to help our clients succeed,” Massey added.
“By combining Dean Dorton’s technology consulting team’s capabilities with Massey Consulting’s expertise, we will be able to provide, implement, and support a variety of accounting software solutions, most notably Sage Intacct – a Cloud-based platform providing real-time data for business owners, in a much greater capacity nationally” commented Jason Miller, director of Business Consulting Services at Dean Dorton.
