GBQ Partners LLC, a Top 200 tax, accounting and consulting firm, announced today a joint venture with ViaVero, a specialized search firm that provides skilled accounting and finance project consultants, to create a robust staffing model in the accounting and finance consulting space.
The joint venture expands GBQ’s service offerings into the talent consulting space and gives ViaVero a broader reach into the middle market here in central Ohio. The initiative deepens the two companies’ expertise in financial talent recruitment and gives their customers a single source for filling positions across the entire spectrum of accounting and finance, from Chief Financial Officer to SEC Reporting and Financial System Implementation special projects.
Michelle Galligan and her team will relocate to GBQ’s Arena District office this spring, keeping the ViaVero name and branding. The deal will bring GBQ’s headcount to over 165 employees.
“We are excited for the joint venture with ViaVero, which will fill a significant need expressed by many of our clients for assistance in the identification of temporary and permanent accounting and finance talent. ViaVero shares our commitment to providing service of exceptional quality, integrity and attentiveness. The partnership leverages the strengths of each organization’s team and networks to meet the growing demand for project staffing,” said Darci Congrove, Managing Director.
“The joint venture with GBQ is the ideal next step in ViaVero’s growth. Our two companies have a strong culture and values alignment and this transaction gives us the opportunity to extend our client base from large public companies into the middle market as well as expand our geographic footprint. Our team is excited about the opportunity to be able to offer both organizations’ clients a broader range of services while continuing to deliver the service and quality they’ve become accustomed to receiving from us,” said Michelle Galligan, CEO.
ViaVero is a unique firm that provides skilled Accounting & Finance project consultants to help clients seize significant opportunities and address serious needs. We “hand pick” professional talent that meets the unique requirements and works effectively within your company’s culture.
