Adams, Brown, Beran & Ball, Chtd. 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 Jonesboro-area businesses. We are now able to better serve them with many more of the complex issues they encounter in the construction industry.”

In addition to Barnett, the Jonesboro location is also led by Ron George, CPA. While they serve clients in numerous industries, they have built a significant construction and real estate practice across Arkansas.

“Our deep industry experience will be expanded with this addition to the firm,” said Brian Staats, CPA, CGMA, managing partner 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 the Jonesboro-area community.”

All six individuals in the former EGP Jonesboro office have joined Adams Brown, with Barnett taking on the role of partner and construction industry team leader. The office will remain at its current 2508 Alexander Drive, Suite B location.

Adams Brown, headquartered in Great Bend, Kansas, was the 165th largest CPA firm in the country last year. Led by Barnett, the Adams Brown Construction and Real Estate team includes 12 professionals with a combined 100 years of experience working with construction companies across the central United States.
