Vierbicher merges with Mau

Apr 06, 2023

Vierbicher, a privately-owned multi-disciplined consulting firm headquartered in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, announced that it has merged with Mau & Associates, LLP, a privately-owned civil engineering and land surveying company headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The merger went into effect on March 31, 2023. 

Joining together, both teams can better provide their clients with increased service offerings in additional geographic locations. As a result of this merger, Vierbicher is well positioned to provide civil engineering, planning, and land surveying throughout all of Wisconsin. Both teams will benefit from an expanded presence in Wisconsin, as well as the addition of professional talent and local expertise. Vierbicher, combined with Mau, will have offices in Madison, Reedsburg, Milwaukee, Prairie du Chien, and Green Bay.

“Creating this partnership makes perfect sense.” says Rodney Zubella, CEO of Vierbicher. “After getting to know Mau staff, we knew right away our cultures were well-aligned. Mau brings with them an impressive reputation in northeast Wisconsin. We look forward to providing our clients with the same high level of customer-focused service that they have come to expect as we expand our services to this growing market.”

Zweig Group – the leading research, publishing, and advisory services resource for firms in the AEC industry – advised Vierbicher through the acquisition process. The deal team included Andy Chavez, CM&AA, an advisor with Zweig Group's M&A team, and Tracey Eaves, MBA, CBA, CVA, BCA, CMEA, Zweig Group's director of valuation advisory services. 

"Vierbicher is a quality organization with a notable reputation, and the combination with Mau & Associates is a great win for both firms," Eaves said. "We are excited to see successful companies join forces to enhance client services."
