About CBIZ & Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C.

CBIZ and Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. (MHM) are independent businesses, associated through an alternative practice structure; this means they work jointly to provide services to their clients. Together, CBIZ and MHM are the 11th largest accounting provider in the U.S. (according to Accounting Today's 2014 ranking of the largest firms by revenue). MHM is an independent CPA firm providing audit, review, and attest services, and works closely with CBIZ, a business consulting, tax, and financial services provider.  For the combined firms, accounting services bring in approximately 25 percent of revenue; tax services are responsible for 41 percent; and advisory and other services make up about 34 percent. 

MHM's roots date back to 1954 when Ernest D. Mayer opened an accounting practice in Kansas City, Mo. Mayer later merged his practice with one owned by Bill Hoffman. In 1978, Chuck McCann joined the firm and the name changed to Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. In 1998, MHM spun off its tax and consulting practice to Century Business Services, Inc., now known as CBIZ. 

CBIZ was founded in 1996 as a result of the merger between Republic Environmental Systems and CBIZ Surety Group. The two companies combined to become International Alliance Services, Inc. (IASI). In December 1997, IASI changed its name to Century Business Services, Inc. Often referred to as "CBIZ" due to its Nasdaq symbol of the same name, the company legally changed its name to CBIZ, Inc. in August 2005. CBIZ began trading on the New York Stock Exchange in August 2006 under the symbol "CBZ." 

Today, CBIZ and MHM have nearly 3,000 associates, including more than 420 partners.
