Beers + Cutler Officially Rebrands as Baker Tilly

Vienna, Va.-based Beers + Cutler (FY08 net revenue of $60.8 million) announced it has officially rebranded as Baker Tilly, just two months after merging with Madison, Wis.-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (FY09 net revenue of $207.2 million).

Ed Offterdinger, former MP of Beers + Cutler will serve as the regional MP of Baker Tilly’s East Region, as well as the vice-chair of the firm’s management committee.

The newly branded firm will continue to operate from its office in Tysons Corner, Va., which will soon display the Baker Tilly name.

On June 1, Virchow Krause re-branded as Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (BTVK). The agreement gave VK the exclusivity of being branded Baker Tilly in the U.S. while also working within the BTI network. As for VK, the move was intended to give the firm a chance to vie for the mid-market accounting, tax and business service work the Big Four doesn’t touch. A Washington Business Journal article, dated Nov. 20, reports, “The B+C deal is part of a plan for an aggressive nationwide expansion. The firm aims to double its revenue to $400 million by 2012. ‘That’s a conservative number,’ said Tim Christen.”
