HORNE LLP Expands Construction Practice to Mobile
HORNE LLP has announced its plans to expand its construction practice, HORNE Construction, to the Mobile and Northwest Florida markets. HORNE Construction currently has offices in Ridgeland, MS (headquarters), Gulfport, MS, Baton Rouge, LA and Memphis, TN, and is licensed to serve clients in 18 states and Puerto Rico. HORNE Construction provides contractors of all specialties with construction-specific financial guidance to help them grow and compete in the construction industry.
Joseph Kasal, a senior associate with HORNE Construction, has recently relocated back to his hometown of Mobile to help grow the construction practice. Kasal has spent the last few years working at HORNE’s headquarters in Ridgeland where he provides assurance and advisory services to privately owned construction companies to assist with their bonding and banking needs and overall efficiency. “I’m ecstatic to be able to do what I love in the place that l love. I look forward to building relationships with contractors in Mobile and becoming an active member of Alabama ABC,” said Kasal.
“Since HORNE already has an office in Mobile, it only made sense to expand our services to the growing Mobile and NW Florida markets. There are a lot of exciting things happening in these areas and we are excited for the opportunity to partner with these talented contractors to help them grow their businesses. Joseph is a strong asset to our team and we know he will accomplish great things in Mobile,“ said Joel Bobo, Partner in Charge of Construction Services at HORNE LLP.
HORNE Construction has provided accounting and advisory services to contractors of all sizes under Bobo’s leadership since 1992 and prides themselves as a thought leader in the construction accounting industry that partners with contractors to help them build successful businesses. The HORNE Construction team consists of 36 team members dedicated to serving the construction industry by providing services ranging from payroll/bookkeeping to complex financial statements and tax returns.
In August, HORNE was selected as one of the Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms in the nation by Construction Executive Magazine. HORNE ranked #22 in the magazine’s first ever ranking of construction accounting firms. “It’s an honor for our Construction team to be recognized as one of the best in the country. It is truly our passion and mission to serve our clients and friends in the construction industry, so to receive this validation for our work is very rewarding. We continue to grow every year and I’m looking forward to the future of our practice,” said Bobo.
