Carr, Riggs & Ingram expands presence in Mississippi

Accountancy and advisory firm Carr, Riggs and Ingram (CRI) has expanded its presence in Mississippi via a merger with WM. F. Horne and Company.

CRI has a particular focus on auditing, consulting and tax strategy selection for captive insurance companies.

William Carr, chairman and managing partner of CRI, said expanding its footprint in Mississippi was an important part of its growth strategy. “The WM. F. Horne and Company office in Laurel, coupled with our current Jackson office, leverages the alliance of our combined teams and resources to enhance our client service delivery and technical expertise, while further establishing our strength in the state,” he said.

Allan Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group, who advised both firms on the merger,  described CRI as “one of the fastest growing first-generation firms in the country.” Following the merger it operates in 29 markets across 10 states.

In addition to accounting services CRI operates seven portfolio companies: Auditwerx (SOC reporting and IT audits); CRI Advanced Analytics (data analytics); CRI Capital Advisors (investment banking); CRI Solutions Group (management consulting); CRI TPA Services (retirement plan administration); Paywerx (payroll management); and Level Four Advisory Services (wealth management).
