Greenwich, Conn.-based accounting firm Thomas E. Finn P.C. has merged into Marcum LLP.
In conjunction with the deal, Thomas Finn and Ari Maunula have joined Marcum as partners.
Marcum's John Mezzanotte will oversee the Greenwich office, which will be part of the firm's New England region.
Jeffrey Weiner, Marcum's managing partner, said: "Tom Finn's deep roots in the Greenwich community strengthen Marcum's presence in the Connecticut market and bring an important new asset to our New England region."
Marcum spokesperson Julie Gross Gelfand told PAM: "If you were to look closely at Marcum's history, we have been growing very steadily both organically and through acquisitions."
When it comes to acquisitions, Gelfand said the firm targets markets where they are looking to expand their geographic presence, or provide more services in a market in which they already have a presence.
She added that Thomas E. Finn is a good fit with Marcum due to the firms' cultures, which are similar.
"[This is] a natural extension of our existing presence in Connecticut," she said.
In addition to the new Greenwich office, Marcum's New England region includes offices in Hartford and New Haven, Conn.; Boston, Needham, and Raynham, Mass.; and Providence, R.I.
