RP&B CPAs is pleased to announce the admission of Michael Zermeño, CPA as shareholder.  Michael has been working with entrepreneurs for over 15 years helping them interpret financial results, make improvements and achieve their goals. At RP&B CPAs, he is an integral part of our Accounting & Audit Department where Michael works with privately held businesses to review, audit and prepare financial statements for compliance requirements, year-end and consulting projects.

Michael is a welcomed addition to the RP&B management team.  In addition to having strong technical skills, he is well-versed in working with companies that are classified as ESOPs.  ESOPs have specialized accounting needs. ESOP Accounting is a unique specialty of RP&B CPAs.  Michael is particularly experienced in GAAP, ESOP accounting and employee benefit plan audits. He has spent the past six years working with ESOP companies assisting them before, during and after their transactions.  Recognized for this expertise, Michael is routinely asked to speak to industry organizations on the topic. 

RP&B experienced considerable growth in 2018 and is poised to continue to grow in 2019.  Strong growth requires strong leadership in order to manage the growth. Michael is up for the challenge as he already takes an active leadership role in the development of our professional staff.   

The appointment of an additional shareholder comes as the firm continues to expand.  RP&B CPAs moved the office location to 3550 Vine Street, Suite 110, Riverside, CA 92507 in late 2018 to accommodate for additional staff and planned growth. 

Bryan Ramirez, CPA, Devin Tamayo and Lindsey Garcia have recently joined the firm in the Tax & Compliance Department. 

RP&B CPAs continues its commitment to being a strong community partner.  In support of manufacturing clients, RP&B recently participated in the 8th Annual Manufacturers’ Summit hosted by  the Manufacturers’ Council of the Inland Empire.  Once the busy activities of tax season are over, the firm will announce its charity for 2019.  Each year, the firm selects a local charity to collectively support.  In 2018, RP&B CPAs collected over $12,000 for Leaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy in Norco, California.
