Nearly five months after announcing a merger, Fort Smith-based Beall Barclay & Co. and the Little Rock office of Thomas & Thomas have rebranded as Landmark PLC, Certified Public Accountants.
The new name and new logo, a compass, indicate the firm’s focus on helping clients reach their goals, according to a news release distributed Monday (Oct. 1), guiding them through their challenges and celebrating their victories along the way.
“Over the past few months, teams from both Thomas & Thomas and Beall Barclay have spent considerable time thinking about the foundation on which our firm philosophy and principles will be built, our future and how we want our clients to perceive our new firm,” Landmark co-managing member Randy Milligan said in the release. “Ultimately, we want to be recognized as navigators, helping our clients understand where they are and how to get to where they want to go.”
Landmark PLC, now one of the largest locally owned accounting firms in Arkansas, has a staff of 115, including a member group of 16, 58 certified public accountants and 38 professionals. The firm has offices in Rogers, Fort Smith, Little Rock and Russellville.
“As we reflect on the history of our firms, we pay homage to the early navigators who lead us to where we are today,” co-managing member Barbara Hambrick said in the release. “The Thomas brothers, Bill Beall and Dick Barclay all guided our firms to achieve the success that we have today. They built the culture that continues to push us forward—a culture of integrity, innovation and growth.”
Beall Barclay was founded in 1963 and in the 1990s acquired Rogers-based Barclay. Thomas & Thomas was founded in 1953 in Texarkana, where its headquarters remains, and that office is not effected by the merger.
In a related move, the company said Beall Barclay Wealth Management, which was founded in 2002, is also rebranding its name to Landmark Financial LLC.
