Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) and SF&Company announced that they have agreed to merge, expanding and enhancing the professional services the two firms provide in central Pennsylvania and the Northeast region of the United States.

SF&Company, with over 100 employees, is an established, widely respected firm that provides professional services to clients primarily in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.

“A merger with SF&Company is another step in the growth of our national footprint and our commitment to provide exceptional services and value for our clients”, said Baker Tilly chief executive officer-elect Alan Whitman.

“SF&Company has terrific leadership, a strong reputation and an established track record of success. By combining our two highly complementary organisations and leveraging our talented teams we’ll capitalise on new growth opportunities with current and future clients”, Whitman added.

Commenting on the merger, John Cardello, SF&Company’s firm managing shareholder said: “We are very proud of the 65 year history of our firm. We also recognise that the next step for SF&Company was to merge with a nationally recognised firm that would enable us to expand services to our clients and opportunities and resources for our team members. Our clients can look forward to working with a growing and influential firm while keeping the value, local points-of-contact and exceptional client service to which they’ve become accustomed”.

The anticipated effective date is 1 November 2015 and the name of the combined firm will be Baker Tilly.
