HBE LLP (www.hbecpa.com), a leading Nebraska accounting and consulting firm, is pleased to announce a merger with the Omaha firm of Fuhrman, Smolsky & Furey (FS&F), P.C., effective October 16. The merger will broaden HBE’s statewide presence and strengthen the firm’s accounting and financial management services in the Omaha market.

Founded in 1987, FS&F partners, Anne Fuhrman, John Smolsky, and Kevin Furey, have served individuals and businesses from their Omaha office for over 30 years. The firm offers a wide variety of professional services including accounting, audit, tax planning and preparation, and specialized consulting.

“Our relationship with the partners at FS&F goes back several years,” said Scott Becker, HBE’s managing partner. “We have always had great respect for their integrity, reputation for quality, and practical approach to serving clients.”

As we got to know HBE over the years,” commented Kevin Furey, FS&F partner, “it was clear that our ideas for client service and developing our professionals were equally aligned. This merger will allow both firms to improve on our strengths, be a great employer and community partner, and a CPA firm that is ready for the future. We are looking forward to introducing Omaha to HBE.”

Following the completion of the merger, Anne, John, and Kevin will become part of HBE’s partner group. They and their team will continue to serve clients from their existing office, located at 9802 Nicholas St. in Omaha. For more information, please visit www.hbecpa.com.
