Chicago-based accounting and advisory firm BDO USA LLP has acquired Piercy Bowler Taylor & Kern CPAs (PBTK), with offices in Salt Lake City, Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada. Nine partners and about 60 other employees will join BDO.
Terms of the transaction, which is expected to close on July1, were not disclosed.
“PBTK’s incredible track record of technical excellence and exceptional client service makes them a perfect fit for BDO,” said Wayne Berson, CEO of BDO USA. “Their comprehensive capabilities across multiple business lines and industries, specifically in the gaming and government sectors, will complement and enhance our current strengths in these sectors and triple our size in the region. We look forward to welcoming PBTK’s talented leadership team and professionals to BDO and working together to redefine excellence for our clients in Nevada, Utah and beyond.”
Founded in 1990, PBTK is a full-service accounting firm with clients across the real estate, construction, manufacturing, retail and wholesale, gaming and hospitality, government and nonprofit industries. PBTK’s Salt Lake City office focuses on government auditing, litigation support, valuation and transactions, bankruptcy and receiverships, regulatory compliance outsourcing, and internal audit services.
“By joining BDO, PBTK clients will still receive the same excellent service from a deep-rooted local team, but will now have access to the additional global resources and capabilities of an international firm,” said Thomas Donohue, president of Piercy Bowler Taylor & Kern. “We were immediately drawn to BDO’s people-first culture, as well as their significant investments in digital transformation.”
