IT firm merging with financial company
An IT firm in the area will soon be part of a financial services company with a pair of offices in the market.
Troy-based Rehmann, an accounting and advisory firm, and Grandville-based Trivalent Group will combine, effective April 1, the firms said today.
With the merger, the two companies intend to launch a new managed IT solutions practice that will “broaden both firms’ service offerings.”
“As the world becomes increasingly technology-driven, Rehmann is focused on staying ahead of our clients’ needs and helping them thrive long into the future,” said Randy Rupp, CEO, Rehmann. “The addition of Trivalent Group will bring more core business solutions under one roof, allowing us to holistically serve our clients and help them reach their business goals.”
Trivalent Group will initially maintain its name while operating under the Rehmann umbrella.
The firms will offer expanded capabilities immediately throughout the Midwest, with a “full integration” beginning in 2019.
“We are thrilled to partner with Rehmann, and in doing so, we are maintaining the core values essential to our success — a focus on community and exceptional client service,” said Larry Andrus, CEO, Trivalent Group.
Andrus will remain at the forefront of the strategy and future growth of the new practice, while Rupp will be CEO of both organizations.
Rehmann has more than 800 associates in 19 offices across Michigan, including Grand Rapids and Muskegon, as well as Ohio and Florida.
Trivalent Group also has offices in Midland, East Lansing, Battle Creek and Traverse City.
