For a small city, Nelson packs a big punch. Breathtaking scenery, a thriving arts and culture scene, a vibrant and diverse economy – it’s a recipe that many small cities are trying to replicate these days. There’s one company that has a unique view into the ingredients that go into this winning combination. It’s Berg Lehmann, an accounting, tax and business advisory firm that’s making some bold moves of its own.
Led by long-time Nelson residents Craig Berg and Stefan Lehmann, Berg Lehmann has been providing business advice and services to a wide range of business owners and organizations in Nelson and surrounding areas for more than 30 years.
As of this month, the company has taken a major step forward and joined with Grant Thornton LLP. This means more than simply rebranding Berg Lehmann to Grant Thornton; it means they can bring timely new resources to their clients – advice and services to meet the growing needs of Nelson’s innovative business community.
“There’s a wonderful synergy in Nelson that’s created an idyllic place for people to live, work and play,” says Berg, whose father originally founded the company. “Residents are committed to supporting the local economy, and business owners are committed to providing them with relevant and forward-thinking products and services. We’re incredibly proud to be part of this unique success story, and we’ll keep working to meet the evolving needs of our clients and our community.”
Both Berg and Lehmann will continue as partners in the firm under the Grant Thornton umbrella. Alongside their team, they’ve earned a reputation as a trusted resource for many local businesses. “Our clients will see a new name on the building, but the same friendly faces inside,” says Berg.
New and existing clients will also have access to a host of new services – including two areas in high demand, valuations and U.S. tax.
“Joining forces with Grant Thornton positions our clients, our community and our colleagues for success. That has always been our priority, and we’re thrilled to find a partner that shares this vision,” says Lehmann.
