Naperville, Ill.-based IPA 100 firm Sikich LLP (FY21 net revenue of $228.6 million) is acquiring Chicago-based consulting firm Accelerated Growth.
Founded in 2009, Accelerated Growth has worked with more than 300 entrepreneurial organizations to optimize and execute their accounting, finance and technology infrastructure, with clients in various stages of growth – from startup to middle market to the venture divisions of Fortune 500 companies. When the deal closes on Nov. 30, approximately 50 Accelerated Growth employees will join Sikich’s downtown Chicago office while the other 70 remain in Accelerated’s offices in Bangalore and Ahmedabad, India.
“This expansion gives us a platform to continue to grow our outsourced accounting and international operations,” says Sikich CEO Chris Geier. “Adding the Accelerated Growth team strengthens our firm’s capabilities and enhances the foundation for us to scale our service offerings to our clients.”
