Louisville, KY (October 1, 2020) – Deming, Malone, Livesay & Ostroff — better known as DMLO — and Rodefer Moss of Southern Indiana (Rodefer) are merging, effective October 1, 2020.
The combination will create more opportunities for the merged firm on both sides of the Ohio River and will employ approximately 150 employees. Rodefer’s Managing Partner Doug York confirmed that no offices are closing, and no jobs are being eliminated. “In fact,” he said, “we are looking for additional talent that would like to be part of a fun, flexible environment, doing meaningful work that makes a difference for their communities.”
DMLO President Chris Ward noted, “The two firms have always been friendly competitors and share a passion for providing the highest quality service to their clients.” Ward continued “Our focus together is on being the best accounting firm in Kentuckiana in ways that truly matter. Our purpose and value — to clients and to our community — extends beyond reporting financial results or calculating tax liabilities, and we will live that out daily.”
The merged firm will retain the name of DMLO and have three office locations in Corydon, Louisville and New Albany. Included in the merger is one of the largest payroll processing companies in the region – EPayroll Resource Group – which is now a division of DMLO.
