ParenteBeard LLC Announces Organisational Change for Non-profit Consulting Affiliate

15 May 2012

ParenteBeard LLC ranked among the top 25 accounting firms in the US and an independent member of Baker Tilly International, has announced that effective 15 May 2012, Dewey & Kaye, the firm's non-profit consulting affiliate, will be further leveraged and integrated into ParenteBeard.

Executive search and transition services previously offered by Dewey & Kaye will now be part of ParenteBeard's human resources consulting and administration affiliate company, Vantagen; non-profit consulting services such as strategic and financial consulting will be handled by ParenteBeard's newly formed consulting group. This reorganisation will enable the firm to further serve clients with a full complement of consulting services.

Dewey & Kaye's nationally recognised team has provided consulting and executive search services to non-profits, foundations, community collaborative organisations and government agencies in Pennsylvania and Ohio for over 22 years.

Dewey & Kaye partner Todd Owens will lead the continued expansion of executive search and transition services as a part of Vantagen.

"Combining forces with Vantagen allows us to build on the passion and commitment to leadership development in the non-profit sector that we have demonstrated for the past 12 years, as we now can also offer the full complement of human resource consulting and administration services that Vantagen's team of expert professionals have been providing since 1997," said Owens. "We believe we can better position ourselves as a true partner within all areas of human resources to our non-profit clients."

ParenteBeard's newly formed consulting group will provide a multitude of services while also working with the public sector and senior living groups to assist with a variety of different client needs.

According to partner Mark Ross, who will lead ParenteBeard's consulting practice: "The creation of this consulting group will significantly heighten the value and depth of the services we offer our clients. The combination of our expertise will continue to strengthen our strategic development, planning, strategic alliances, financial sustainability and evaluation services."

"This strategic change continues to enrich and differentiate our position as a trusted non-profit consulting advisor," said Dewey & Kaye principal Kate Dewey. "We are thrilled to be part of ParenteBeard, and recognise this as a great opportunity to grow and evolve as we continue providing clients with a wide variety of consulting services. This is a true example of our commitment to provide exceptional client service."
