Business advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly US, LLP (Baker Tilly) enters the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of accounting firm Bader Martin, P.S. (Bader Martin) effective June 1.
For nearly a century, Bader Martin has built a reputation as an independent, high-quality, relationship-based firm whose talented professionals are woven deep into the fabric of Seattle and the Puget Sound region.
“Bader Martin has exceptional leaders and has earned the trust and respect of clients whose relationships span decades,” said Baker Tilly CEO Alan Whitman. “This combination signals Baker Tilly’s commitment to the Pacific Northwest by honoring and elevating what makes Bader Martin special.”
Bader Martin specializes in tax and wealth strategies for generations of affluent families, closely held and family businesses, entrepreneurs and executives.
“Joining forces with Baker Tilly provides international capabilities and incredible talent to do more for our clients whose needs are complex,” said Bader Martin Managing Principal Kelly Nelson. “Our people are now connected with an organization whose very existence is to help them discover their strengths, sharpen their skills, deepen their knowledge and soar to personal heights.”
Nelson will become Baker Tilly’s managing partner for the Seattle market.
Baker Tilly’s purpose is to unleash and amplify talent. Its “breaking the mold of public accounting” call-to-action captures the essence of independent thinking and the courage to discover a better way – the very spirit Bader Martin’s 100 professionals exemplify.
Allan D. Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group, advised both firms on the combination: “Bader Martin’s reputation and deep-rooted relationships are something to be admired. They recognized in Baker Tilly a vision and strategy that resonates and leads to endless possibilities for their clients and people.”
