Skoda Minotti, a CPA, business and financial advisory firm, has completed the acquisition of Lomax, Soful & Foster, a CPA firm located in Akron, Ohio. The firm has been providing accounting, tax and consulting services to Akron companies since its founding in 1929.

All employees of Lomax, Soful & Foster will join Skoda Minotti’s existing Akron office located at 3875 Embassy Parkway, Suite 200, Fairlawn, OH.

“The acquisition of Lomax, Soful & Foster allows us to better serve our Akron clients and business partners,” said Skoda Minotti chairman Greg Skoda, CPA. “Lomax, Soful & Foster was an excellent fit for us because of their reputation in the Akron market. Their outstanding client relationships, some lasting over eight decades, speak for themselves.”

As a part of the acquisition, Michael G. Soful, CPA and Jeffrey A. Foster, CPA will join the firm as accounting and auditing partners and Lawrence E. Foster, CPA will join the firm as a tax partner.

“We look forward to being able to provide our clients with the additional depth and breadth of services and resources offered by Skoda Minotti,” Soful said. “We look forward to continuing to help grow our business with our new team at the firm, both in the Akron area and throughout the region.”

Earlier this year, Skoda Minotti acquired two CPA firms: Gerald M. Appel, CPA, Inc. and Bauman, Raymondo & Company, PA as well as Quantam Network Services, PBnJ Solutions and Core Information Management.
