Adams Brown expands via acquisition in Wichita

WICHITA – Adams Brown, a leading regional CPA and business advisory firm, announced its intent to acquire Wichita-based Fortner & Short LLC (F&S), effective Nov. 1.  

With all the changes within the CPA industry in recent years, both firms found that they align on what matters most — providing clients with deeper, holistic business solutions.  

“When two firms are grounded in how they treat their clients and their people, it’s a great cultural fit,” said Adams Brown Managing Partner Brian Staats. “This acquisition is a win for all involved.”  

Adams Brown is the 144th largest CPA firm in the country, according to Inside Public Accounting. The firm was named a Regional Leader and the 11th Fastest Growing Firm by Accounting Today earlier this year.   

“We’re excited to add the talented professionals at F&S to our construction and small business teams,” Staats said. “Not only are they great additions to our team, they will add tremendous value to our existing clients as we tap them to assist in certain areas.”
