Brown Edwards names new managing partner
Brown Edwards, a CPA firm that has six offices in Virginia, has named Jason A. Hartman its managing partner. He succeeds Don Pellillo who served as managing partner for 16 years and will remain partner at the firm.
Hartman has managed Brown Edwards’ Roanoke office since 2008. He joined the firm in 1986, developing its Local Government Practice and Local Government Team. He also was responsible for building and leading the Credit Union Practice, which expanded under his leadership to include clients throughout the region.
Hartman also was instrumental in the firm joining the BDO Alliance USA, giving Brown Edwards access to the expertise of the fifth-largest CPA firm in the U.S.
One of Hartman’s main objectives is to continue the firm’s growth through acquisitions.
“As we have grown, clients from outside our office locations have recognized the quality delivered by Brown Edwards and have sought us out,” Hartman said in a statement. “It is desirable from a client service and community involvement perspective that we have offices in those locations to better serve our clients.”
He earned degrees from Glenville State College and James Madison University and serves on the board of Feeding America Southwest Virginia.
Brown Edwards is a CPA firm with more than 250 employees. It has offices in Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee.
