-- Hayashi & Wayland Accounting & Consulting, LLP, announced today the acquisition of Snyder Accountancy, a full service public accounting firm headquartered in Monterey, CA, with a satellite office in Salinas, CA.
“From the beginning, what most impressed us were the reputation of Snyder Accountancy and the high level of integrity that David [David M. Snyder, Founder of Snyder Accountancy]
and his professional staff possess. We soon realized that the cultures of our firms were very similar, and for many other reasons, a merger would be mutually beneficial and make sense,” stated Michael T. Briley, Managing Partner of Hayashi & Wayland, regarding the acquisition.
David Snyder founded Snyder Accountancy in 1981 as Snyder and Associates in Monterey, CA. The Salinas office was established in 1982 and the Soledad office followed in 1989. Snyder Accountancy, the name of the professional corporation chartered in 1989, remained in operation under that name up to the present. “We are grateful for the loyalty and support our clients have given us over the years. We are excited to be taking this positive step to be able to provide even greater benefits to our clients due to the substantial resources of Hayashi & Wayland,” said David Snyder regarding his decision to merge his firm with Hayashi & Wayland.
The merger represents continued growth for Hayashi & Wayland Accounting & Consulting, LLP which was established in 1976 and is recognized as one of the largest professional services firms on the Central Coast of California. The firm currently has offices in Carmel, King City, Monterey, Paso Robles and Salinas and offers services in traditional accounting and consulting, as well as retirement plan services.
