The national advisory and CPA firm Baker Tilly US, LLP (Baker Tilly) will acquire Management Partners, effective Oct. 1. Management Partners specializes in strategic planning, process improvement, organization analysis, financial analysis, executive recruitment, interim management, coaching, facilitation, and training for local governments.
The acquisition adds a unique and significant layer of experience to Baker Tilly’s robust public sector practice. Management Partners’ professionals are former local government leaders and managers stemming from all operational facets. They have nearly three decades of field-tested techniques and proven methodologies.
“Management Partners has something other consultants in local government don’t. They’ve been there and understand the challenges on a personal level,” said Vicki Hellenbrand, Baker Tilly managing partner and public sector practice leader. “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.”
Baker Tilly has been advising public sector organizations for 90 years, providing more than 3,100 governmental entities with financial, operational, risk, human capital, executive recruitment, and compliance services.
“Helping make communities better is our passion, always has been, always will be,” said 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.”
Management Partners’ 96 professionals will join Baker Tilly. Learn more about Baker Tilly’s public sector advisory services at bakertilly.com/specialties/public-sector-advisory.
