Two Long-Established Firms Combine as the Largest North Bay Accounting Firm

Santa Rosa, Calif., January 1, 2019 – Sonoma County-based accounting firms Pisenti & Brinker LLP (P&B) and Zainer Rinehart Clarke (ZRC) announce their merger under the Pisenti & Brinker name, effective Jan. 1, 2019. ZRC Partners Linda Kachiu and Danielle Sandoval will maintain their titles and leadership positions in the new firm with P&B Partners Jim Perez, Tim Moratto, Brett Bradford and Josh Moore. Former partners Betsy Stewart of ZRC and Ray Pounds of P&B have become Principals as of Jan. 1, 2019. The new P&B has a combined 92-year history in the region and, in addition to its headquarters in Santa Rosa, will have offices in Petaluma, Napa and St. Helena with 31 CPAs and nearly 80 employees. The largest local Sonoma County firm is now also the largest accounting firm in the North Bay measured by the number of total staff.

“When we began to look at this opportunity we realized just how similar the two firms are in terms of core values, client composition and services,” said Perez, P&B’s co-managing partner. This is an incredible opportunity for our current and future employees as we will be able to offer them more opportunities in their career paths. Our clients will benefit from the convergence of the best practices of each firm and the additional depth and technical resources that will be available to the North Bay Area’s businesses and individuals.”
