PBMares LLP, a Mid-Atlantic region accounting and consulting firm, has acquired the New Bern and Morehead City, North Carolina offices of RSM US.

Founded in 1963 and headquartered in Newport News, Virginia, PBMares delivers audit, tax, and consulting services to corporations, private businesses, non-profits, and individuals. The company has more than 250 employees across 10 offices in Virginia and Maryland.

PBMares is also a part of the RSM US Alliance, an affiliation of independent accountancies, which enables it to tap the resources of the RSM network when a client needs specialized expertise or support outside its core geographic area.

The company will now expand its footprint to North Carolina, with the acquisition of RSM’s New Bern and Morehead City offices. The deal will add 46 people to PBMares, including lead office partner Jeff Williams and partners Robbie Bittner, Tracey Dail, and Charles Dean Smith.
