BKD CEO Ted Dickman is pleased to announce that Kiesling Associates LLP will join the firm, effective December 4, 2016.
“We want to extend a warm welcome to our new BKD team members,” said Dickman. “Kiesling’s commitment to client service and true expertise will help us achieve our goals as we move forward.”
With personnel in Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado and Wisconsin, Kiesling combines full-service capabilities with deep industry knowledge in the telecommunications industry. Kiesling will join BKD’s North Region, led by Regional Managing Partner Barry Davis.
“This is truly a win-win for both firms,” Davis said. “The combination strengthens BKD’s presence throughout the Midwest and provides Kiesling with additional resources for existing clients as well as enhanced growth opportunities beyond their current niche practice.”
With the addition of Kiesling, BKD will have 35 offices in 16 states, approximately 2,600 personnel—including more than 270 partners—and more than $550 million in revenue. BKD provides a wide range of assurance, tax and accounting outsourcing services. The firm also provides specialized consulting to numerous industries, including health care, financial institutions, insurance, manufacturing, distribution, construction, real estate and energy, along with not-for-profit organizations, governmental entities, colleges and universities.
BKD also serves clients around the world as the largest U.S. member of Praxity, AISBL, a global alliance of independent firms that serves the dynamic needs of multinational clients.
