HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - November 01, 2016) - MiddletonRaines+Zapata, LLP (MRZ) opened its doors in Austin, TX on November 1, 2016. The four-year-old CPA firm is headquartered in Houston, with additional offices in Spring and South Carolina. The addition of the Austin office represents a long-anticipated move for the firm. The combination of a solid base of clients in the city, along with the growth potential inherent in one of the state's most robust cities, made the move a priority for the fast-growing firm. The office's physical address is 901 S MoPac Expy, Building 1, Suite #500, Austin, TX 78746, in the heart of Barton Hills.

MRZ Partner Stan Raines (a founding partner of the firm) serves as the Managing Partner of the Austin office. Several dedicated team members from the Houston office moved to Austin to establish the outpost. Having just been designated as the no. 1 Best Place to Work in Houston in their category by the Houston Business Journal for the second year in a row, the MRZ team is excited to bring that culture and exceptional service out to the Austin office.

Of the move Partner Stan Raines says, "We have a great culture here at MRZ that I know will serve Austin well, and we are excited to have an opportunity to grow here and help our clients grow and thrive. On a personal note, I grew up in the greater Austin area, so it's an exciting opportunity to introduce my wife and daughters to a place dear to my heart."

The tremendous growth MRZ has experienced over the last four years, coupled with a desire to be even more accessible to existing and future clientele in the area, drove the expansion to the lively city.

About entering into the next phase of growth, Partner of Practice Growth Evan Tierce says, "Austin's entrepreneurial energy is a great fit for who we are as a firm, and we're excited to enter a market that has a similar passion for growth and innovation. The demand for ideas and value-added services from our profession continues to increase, and Austin presents another incredible opportunity for MRZ to deliver exactly that."
