Merging accounting firms to bring new Johnson City office

Johnson City Press • Jun 8, 2019 at 7:05 PM

Rodefer Moss & Co. PLLC, a multi-state accounting and business advisory firm with offices in Kingsport and Greeneville, is merging with accounting firms in Kingsport and Norton, Virginia, giving Rodefer Moss a four-state footprint and leading to a new location in Johnson City.

Effective July 1, Rodefer Moss will join with Fortner Smalley PLLC of Kingsport, and Thrower, Blanton & Associates P.C., of Norton. The combined firm will now have offices in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Virginia, and will employ 180.

CEO Jimmy Rodefer said the merging firms already served Johnson City customers, so the new location, soon to open at 600 N. State of Franklin Road, was a natural development.
