The partners and staff at Kemper CPA Group LLP are pleased to announce a merger with Bray Drake Liles & Richardson LLP, effective November 1, 2015. The office will now operate under the Kemper CPA Group LLP name and will be located at the existing Kemper CPA Group office in Champaign, Illinois.

The partners of Bray Drake Liles & Richardson LLP will remain on staff at Kemper CPA Group LLP. Only the name is changing; the faces will stay the same! Curtis D. Liles will be joining Kemper CPA Group as a partner, and R. Neil Richardson will be joining as a partner-of-counsel.

Bray Drake Liles & Richardson has been serving the Champaign County area since 1977, and the merger strengthens Kemper CPA Group’s presence in the Champaign-Urbana area.

Tony Rubenacker, managing partner of Kemper CPA Group LLP, said of the merger, "Both Kemper CPA Group and Bray Drake Liles & Richardson have rich histories of success, and the opportunity to combine the resources of two great firms will be beneficial for clients of both firms. We are excited for the future of our Champaign office, and we look forward to continuing to serve the Champaign-Urbana metropolitan area."
