NEWBILL & HENRY CPAs MERGES WITH ALEXANDER THOMPSON ARNOLD CPAs

Bob Newbill & Rodney Henry and the Newbill & Henry team have been providing professional accounting services since 1971. The Dyersburg-based practice is starting a new chapter on October 1, 2011 when it merges with Alexander Thompson Arnold CPAs, headquartered in Union City, Tennessee. ATA has an office in Dyersburg, which was founded in 1946. To celebrate the merger, ATA is hosting a Ribbon Cutting and Open House on September 29 from 4 until 6 p.m. at Newbill & Henry’s office at 400 Masonic Street, Dyersburg. To ease the transition for existing Newbill & Henry clients, Newbill & Henry staff will continue to serve clients at 400 Masonic Street through tax season. After April 15, 2012, all Dyersburg staff will work at ATA’s office at 185 North Church Street, Dyersburg. “The joining of our firms is a win-win situation,” said Steve Carmichael, Alexander Thompson Arnold CPAs’ senior partner in Dyersburg. “ATA’s heritage is customer service centered and locally focused, which fits nicely with the culture of Newbill & Henry. We look forward to continued growth and prosperity with this alliance.” “This is an excellent opportunity for our firm,” said Rodney Henry. “One of the reasons we decided to join the Alexander Thompson Arnold team is its local focus. ATA has the resources of a large firm, which can be a great advantage for our clients, but they focus on providing personalized customer service. Our clients will see many positive things from this merger and will continue to work with the same employees they know and trust.” “Joining forces with ATA has been very exciting for Rodney and me, because we’re seeing how our clients will benefit from the additional resources,” said Bob Newbill. “Without a doubt, our clients and staff have been at the heart of this decision. We will still be working with our clients, but we’ll have so many more opportunities for growth as part of Alexander Thompson Arnold.” Alexander Thompson Arnold CPAs is one of the largest accounting and consulting firms in the Mid-South and was named the seventh largest accounting firm in the State of Tennessee by American City Business Journals. Founded in 1946, ATA offers a comprehensive array of tax, audit, accounting, consulting and wealth management services and is a member of the BDO Seidman Alliance.
