Baker Tilly and SF&Company Announce Merger

Chicago-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (FY15 net revenue of $478.1 million) and York, Pa.-based SF&Company (FY14 net revenue of $14.4 million) have agreed to merge and expand professional services in central Pennsylvania and the Northeast.

SF&Company, with over 100 employees and offices in York, Harrisburg and State College, has provided outstanding professional services to clients primarily in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware for 65 years.

With the merger, Baker Tilly would add an accomplished team of SF&Company professionals and will further strengthen its growing position in the Northeast. The combination with Baker Tilly, a top 15 accounting and advisory firm, will provide SF&Company with expanded resources and specialization to help clients.

The anticipated effective date is Nov. 1, and the name of the combined firm will be Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP.

“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 CEO-elect Alan D. Whitman.

SF&Company MP John J. Cardello says, “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.”
