Adams Brown, a leading CPA and business advisory firm, has acquired the Jonesboro, Arkansas, office of EGP, PLLC, expanding its geographic reach and deepening its construction industry specialty.

“I’m excited to be part of the Adams Brown team,” said Mark P. Barnett, Jr., CPA, CVA, CGMA, CCIFP, MBA. “This was a great opportunity to bring significant additional resources and industry specialties to Arkansas businesses. We are now able to better serve them with many more of the complex issues they encounter in the construction industry.”

“Our deep industry experience will be expanded with this addition to the firm,” said Brian Staats, CPA, CGMA, managing principal of Adams Brown. “We are excited to have Mark help drive our strategic direction in the construction space at the same time we expand our geographic footprint into Arkansas. He and his team will be great additions to ours as we dedicate ourselves to serving Arkansas businesses.”
