Meyers Brothers Kalicka Hires Three New Associates
HOLYOKE — Meyers Brothers Kalicka, P.C. announced the hiring of three new associates — Kayla Helitzer, MSA, Joseph Vreedenburgh, MSA, and Brandon Mitchell, MSA, CPA.

He is a member of Northampton Area Young Professionals and enjoys hiking and mountain biking.
Mitchell specializes in audits of commercial and not-for-profit entities, reviews and compilations of financial statements for small businesses and individuals, and tax-return preparations. Before joining the firm, he worked as a business manager for a locally owned business. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business management and a master’s degree in accountancy from Westfield State University and devotes much of his spare time to his alma mater’s Mentoring Program.
“Kayla, Joseph, and Brandon each bring unique experience and expertise to their positions at the firm,” said MBK partner Howard Cheney. “But among the things they have in common are integrity, professionalism, and a strong dedication to customer service.”
