BDO USA Taps Into Nevada, Utah Markets With IPA 300 Acquisition

Chicago-based BDO USA, an IPA 100 firm, is merging in Las Vegas-based IPA 300 firm Piercy Bowler Taylor & Kern (PBTK) in a deal expected to close on July 1.

“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,” says PBTK president Thomas Donohue.

Founded in 1990 and now the largest locally owned accounting firm in southern Nevada, PBTK serves clients across the real estate, construction, manufacturing, retail and wholesale, gaming and hospitality, government and non-profit industries. Post-merger, the firm’s nine partners and approximately 60 professionals will continue to serve clients in its Las Vegas, Reno, Nev., and Salt Lake City offices.

“PBTK’s incredible track record of technical excellence and exceptional client service makes them a perfect fit for BDO,” says 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.”

“Yet another example of BDO’s successful growth strategy, this expansion adds enormous value for current and prospective clients, particularly those in the gaming and government industries,” adds Allan Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group and an IPA most recommended consultant, who advised both firms on the transaction. “Piercy Bowler Taylor & Kern selected BDO because of its aligned and complementary culture, one that prioritizes remarkable client service.”
