BKD Adds a Utah Firm to its Growing Family

Stayner Bates helps expand BKD's Western region reach

Salt Lake City-based Stayner Bates P.C., which specializes in assurance, tax, consulting and business valuation services, is joining BKD in June.

“With the addition of Stayner Bates, BKD has accomplished a long-standing goal of joining the Utah market,” BKD Managing Partner Jeff Ronsse says. “The combination enhances BKD’s resources and provides Stayner Bates with greater growth opportunities and market presence.”

BKD has 38 offices in 17 states, and fiscal year 2018 revenues were about $600 million. With more than 2,710 personnel—including more than 300 partners—BKD provides a wide range of assurance, tax and accounting outsourcing services. The firm also serves clients around the world as one of the largest U.S. members of Praxity, AISBL, a global alliance of independent firms that serves the dynamic needs of multinational clients.

“Stayner Bates’ commitment to client service and true expertise will assist us in accomplishing our goals as we move forward," BKD CEO Ted Dickman says.

Stayner Bates’ staff of about 35, including four partners, will remain at the firm's Salt Lake City location.

“This is certainly a win-win situation for all involved,” Stayner Bates President Steve Hanni says. “We’re happy to be joining BKD and using our industry knowledge and familiarity with this region to help better serve our clients and grow the firm.”
