Friday, July 12, 2013

Gneiding, Blizard, Bushta & Company, LLP, of Allentown, is expanding its practice to a second location in New Holland, Pa. The firm has acquired Ledzinski & Company, a certified public accounting firm that has been in business for 32 years. The principal of the firm, Walter Ledzinski, will be retiring.
“I was searching for a firm that would be able to provide the same accounting services to my clientele so that the transition would be seamless,” says Ledzinski. “Most importantly, I wanted to offer our clients the same professional integrity and customer care that they have come to expect from us. I know I’ve found those qualities in the partners at Gneiding, Blizard, Bushta & Company.”
The firm will assume responsibility for Ledzinski’s clientele today; however Ledzinski has agreed to be available on a consultation basis as needed for the next year.
Gneiding, Blizard, Bushta & Company offers every segment of professional financial management including accounting, auditing, tax, and financial consulting. Specific services range from litigation support and forensic accounting, and entity selection and restructuring to payroll services and employee benefits, pension, and profit sharing plans. Although all partners are highly qualified to handle every aspect of the services offered by the firm, each possesses a concentrated area of expertise.
Before joining the partnership, Howard Gneiding was associated with large accounting firms in the Lehigh Valley since 1975 and also worked at Mack Trucks, Inc. Gneiding’s extensive expertise includes planning, supervising, reviewing and performing audits in various industries including construction and manufacturing.
Todd Bushta held positions with large accounting firms and also owned his own accounting firm. He has a solid background in the public sector, serving as a county fiscal operations manager for Carbon-Monroe-Pike County Joinder and Deputy Controller for Monroe County. Bushta has conducted audits for the
United States Department of Justice Executive Office for United States Trustees across the nation.
Partner Robert Blizard, Jr. climbed the ladder of success quickly with a large regional accounting firm progressing from a staff accountant to senior management. Blizard relies on his vast experience as he provides tax and accounting services to diverse clientele in a wide range of industries from professional trade associations, manufacturing, and construction to medical and professional service providers.
“Our firm’s core values are very similar to those of Ledzinski, resulting in an easy transition for his clients,” says Blizard. “Our goal is to develop long-term business relationships as we have done with our current clientele. We have achieved success by getting to know our clients well and giving them personal attention and service.” Blizard also says that the firm’s expertise in the industry and its commitment to continuing education and innovative technology have led to its rapid growth.
