Weaver Merges with Bank Advisory Resources

18 Jun 2010

Weaver, an independent member of Baker Tilly International, announces the expansion of existing services offered to financial institutions through the merger with Bank Advisory Resources, LLC effective 7 June 2010. 

"With Bank Advisory Resources joining Weaver, this allows the firm to add strong industry knowledge and be better positioned in our advisory practice to provide independent loan reviews, bank regulatory audits, information technology reviews and risk assessments to meet the growing compliance demand within the financial institutions industry sector," said Alyssa G. Martin, CPA and partner in charge of Weaver's advisory services practice.  

Initially formed in 2002, Bank Advisory Resources, a niche firm, provides consulting services to directors and executive management of community banks focusing on loan and credit administration, banking laws and regulatory compliance issues across the State of Texas.

"The Bank Advisory Resources team brings nationally-recognised bank regulatory resources to the firm and adds a wealth of experience to compliment Weaver's existing financial institutions practice," said Bruce Zaret, CPA and partner in charge of Weaver's financial institutions practice. "With banking laws and other regulations changing rapidly, the expanded financial institutions team will add to our efforts in helping clients navigate through the regulatory landscape." 

Scott Opdahl, president of Bank Advisory Resources, will be a director in Weaver's financial institutions compliance group and his team will reside in Weaver's Houston office. 

"Our clients will greatly benefit from the additional depth and resource base that Weaver provides," said Opdahl. "We are better positioned to serve a growing number of banks within this specialised market and continue to build upon the close, enduring relationships we have with our current clients."
