BKD Expands Presence In Texas

Springfield, Mo.-based BKD, LLP (FY11 net revenue of $390.7 million) acquired Waco, Texas-based Parrish, Moody & Fikes, on July 1. PMF brings 50 team members, including partner Michael Oatman, to BKD. 

“We want to continue our strategy of growing a dominant health care practice in Texas, and the timing was right for PMF to join our firm,” BKD CEO Neal Spencer said. 

This expansion will allow BKD to meet the needs of the rapidly growing Texas market as it serves clients from its offices in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Waco. Larry King, BKD MP, Dallas and Tom Watson, Dallas assistant MP, will lead the Waco office, which will be affiliated with BKD’s Dallas practice.
