Accounting firm Eide Bailly has acquired Hawkins Advisors of Orem, giving the regional firm a presence in southern Utah County.
Hawkins Advisors will assume the Eide Bailly name and bring eight partners and 58 staff to the firm. These additions will make Eide Bailly one of the largest CPA firms in the state, based on staff. The firm already has 169 partners and staff in offices in Lehi, Salt Lake City and Ogden.
“The addition of Hawkins Advisors links Eide Bailly’s services and resources in a way that will help us better serve businesses across the region,” said Ted Hill, partner-in-charge of Eide Bailly’s Utah offices. “Eide Bailly was one of the first regional firms to enter Utah and we are constantly looking for opportunities like this to strengthen our solutions for clients while still providing personal, local care.”
“Joining Eide Bailly brings world-class services to our clients and businesses in Utah County,” said Josh Rowley, Hawkins managing partner. “It also provides our staff new opportunities to grow in the areas of their strengths and interests, as well as boost our continued efforts to recruit and retain Utah’s best talent.”
“One of the questions we get from our clients is ‘can you grow with us?’” said Hawkins partner Eric Nuttall. “Joining Eide Bailly allows us to unequivocally say ‘yes’ to that. As Utah continues to be one of the best states in the nation for business, we can be a trusted advisor for businesses here no matter where they are in their journey.”
