Baker Tilly Expands Public Sector Practice With Acquisition

Looking to expand its public sector practice, Chicago-based IPA 100 firm Baker Tilly (FY22 net revenue of $1.31 billion) is acquiring Cincinnati-based consulting firm Management Partners.

“Management Partners has something other consultants in local government don’t – they’ve been there and understand the challenges on a personal level,” says Baker Tilly MP and public sector practice leader Vicki Hellenbrand. “Coupling that level of client trust with Baker Tilly’s solutions and scale, we will help local governments keep up with change – and even stay ahead.”

Founded in 1994, Management Partners specializes in strategic planning, process improvement, organization analysis, financial analysis, executive recruitment, interim management, coaching, facilitation and training for local governments. When the deal closes on Oct. 1, the firm’s 96 professionals will join Baker Tilly.

“Helping make communities better is our passion – always has been, always will be,” adds Management Partners president and CEO Jerry Newfarmer. “We needed to join with someone with that same passion. Baker Tilly has it, as well as the expanded capabilities and incredible talent to do more for our clients.”
