ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Syracuse–based Bowers CPAs & Advisors says it has acquired a Rochester accounting firm and has also relocated its Rochester office.

Bowers believes the acquisition will help expand its office in the Rochester market, per its Jan. 19 announcement.

Bowers & Company CPAs — which provides tax, audit, and client accounting and advisory services — is headquartered at 333 W. Washington St. in Syracuse. Besides the Syracuse and Rochester offices, the firm also has a location at 1120 Commerce Park Drive East in Watertown.

Michael D’Avirro and Carl Austin are managing partners of Bowers.

Established in 1977, Bowers CPAs & Advisors says it has grown from fewer than 10 employees to its current count of 130 employees in its three offices. 

Acquisition

Kasperski Dinan & Rink CPAs joined Bowers in a transaction that adds to its tax, audit, and client accounting and advisory services teams in Rochester. 

The accounting firms didn’t disclose any financial details of the acquisition agreement. The deal became official on Jan. 1.

Tracey Rink and Rick Kasperski founded their accounting practice in 2005. 

“Although on January 1, 2024, our name was updated to Bowers CPAs & Advisors, Tracey and I will remain stationed at the office, as Partners, supporting our clients and our team as we enter a new era,” Kasperski said in a Bowers news release.

Rink, Kasperski and four additional partners are now partners in the Bowers firm, Jessica Foley, marketing coordinator at Bowers CPAs & Advisors, tells CNYBJ in an email. A total of 10 employees of the Kasperski firm have joined the Bowers Rochester office, she adds. 

“Joining Bowers will allow us to expand our operational capacity, along with providing additional resources to assist our current and future clients,” Kasperski said in the release. “We see a deep value alignment with Bowers and a matched level of commitment to clients, service, and relationships that have guided our practice over the decades.”

Office relocation

Not long after Bowers announced the acquisition of Kasperski Dinan & Rink CPAs, the firm also revealed the relocation of its Rochester office to 200 Meridian Centre Blvd.

“This transition underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering excellence in accounting services,” Michael D’Avirro, co-managing partner at Bowers CPAs & Advisors, said in the firm’s news release. “The relocation to our new, more spacious office not only reaffirms our dedication to exceptional client service but also sets the stage for countless exciting opportunities on the horizon. The move to a larger space is crucial as it allows us to accommodate our growing team, foster collaboration, and enhance operational efficiency. It positions us to continually serve our clients to the best of our abilities, provides the room we need to innovate and thrive in a dynamic business landscape.”

“This move is a testament to our dedication to excellence. The new office not only reflects our commitment to providing exceptional accounting services but also sets the stage for exciting opportunities ahead,” Tracey Rink, Rochester office partner, said.
