UHY Expands into Nashville

UHY is entering the Nashville market by joining with accounting firm, PHB CPAs, effective December 1, 2022.

PHB CPAs is one of the most trusted and experienced accounting firms in the Nashville region. The firm provides business, individual and non-profit accounting services and specializes in tax preparation and planning, as well as bookkeeping and audits.

Regarding the combination, Sarah Hardee, President & Managing Partner of PHB CPAs commented, “We are very excited to join UHY. Our firm has enjoyed significant growth over the years thanks to our talented team and wonderful clients. There is great chemistry between the two firms and a strong alignment and vision for the future.”

“UHY is thrilled to welcome PHB to our growing and entrepreneurial family,” says Jerry Townsend, UHY’s Midwest Region Managing Director who was instrumental in the combination. “PHB has built a stellar reputation for serving clients exceptionally and we look forward to working collaboratively with them to continue to deliver superior service.”

Steve McCarty, UHY US Chief Executive Officer, explains “UHY’s people-first culture is well received by firms similarly focused on providing a better experience for their colleagues. Firms want the ability to partner with like-minded professionals focused on providing deeper services that dynamic middle market businesses need in these demanding times.”

PHB CPAs is comprised of 38 team members, four of whom will be joining UHY as partners, including Hardee. All PHB professional and administrative team members will join UHY and continue to operate in their Franklin, TN location.
