Woodland Hills financial advisory firm CNM LLP announced Thursday the opening of a new office in San Diego.

Like its Valley headquarters, the office at 8910 University Center Lane in San Diego will provide accounting, financial reporting, compliance, audit and IPO assistance services. It will specialize in start-up and pre-IPO market clients in the life science industry.

Leading the satellite location will be career accountant Tasia Blazevitch, who joins the company from Ernst & Young.

San Diego is the second new location for CNM this year, following its expansion to New York City in April. It also has an office in Irvine.

“We made the strategic decision to open a new office in San Diego to … accommodate our growing client base who demand our specialized, best-in-class advisory services and personalized approach,” said CNM Managing Partner Nathan Matthews in a statement. “Having doubled our locations just this year, we forecast much more growth over the coming years by increasing our presence across the U.S. and international markets.”
