Looking to expand its presence in the St. Louis area, Naperville, Ill.-based IPA 100 firm Sikich LLP (FY19 net revenue of $167.4 million) is merging in Chesterfield, Mo.-based Hochschild Bloom & Company.
Founded in 1946 and now one of the largest accounting firms in the St. Louis metropolitan area, Hochschild Bloom offers accounting, tax and audit services to companies across a range of industries, including government, not-for-profit, health care, construction, manufacturing and professional services. Approximately 40 Hochschild Bloom employees, including four partners, will join Sikich as part of the deal.
“Hochschild Bloom & Company brings deep industry experience, particularly in the government sector, and strong roots in the St. Louis market to Sikich,” says Tom Krehbiel, PIC of CPA services for Sikich. “We look forward to adding their impressive team and strengthening our position as a leading service provider in the region.”
