IPA 100 firm Eide Bailly (FY21 net revenue of $449.9 million) has announced that Jeremy Hauk will become its next MP and CEO on May 1, 2022. He will replace Dave Stende, who will retire on that date after nearly 40 years at the firm and nine years as MP/CEO.
“Jeremy is a tremendously talented partner with a long list of accomplishments at Eide Bailly, and I’m sure that list will continue to grow as managing partner/CEO,” says Stende. “I’m happy to be able to hand over leadership to such a worthy partner, and I’m grateful for my own time as managing partner/CEO. Eide Bailly is an incredible firm with amazing people, and I can’t wait to see what will be accomplished in the years ahead.”
Hauk is currently the PIC of tax services and has also served as chairman of Eide Bailly’s board of directors and as tax department head of the firm’s Billings, Mont., office. Since joining the firm in 1989, he has provided tax, consulting and business advisory services to a diverse group of clients from a wide range of industries, including financial institutions, real estate, dentist and physician groups, as well as income tax and estate planning for individuals.
“Our firm has become stronger than ever under Dave’s leadership, and I plan to continue developing our firm resources and investing in the technology and people that will drive us forward,” says Hauk. “In addition, I believe the managing partner/CEO is the custodian of the firm’s culture, and I will continue to ensure the culture and values that define our firm will be at the core of all our decisions.”
