CliftonLarsonAllen Merges in Accounting Management Solutions

Minneapolis-based CliftonLarsonAllen (FY14 net revenue of $599 million) has announced its fourth merger in recent weeks, combining with Waltham, Mass.-based Accounting Management Solutions (AMS), which provides outsourced accounting and financial management services in the Northeast.

The deal took effect on Nov. 1. As part of the deal, AMS CEO Jim Bourdon and his team will help CLA provide a variety of outsourcing services around the country.

“AMS joins CLA as a strategic decision to support the next phase of growth for AMS, while simultaneously advancing CLA’s national outsourcing services,” says Bourdon. “AMS is enthusiastic about being able to offer our clients access to a national network of resources and will continue to provide our clients with the exceptional service they’ve come to expect.”

As part of CLA, the AMS team will operate out of existing locations in Waltham and New York.

“Clients turn to us because they trust that our team will have impactful interactions towards their success,” says CLA CEO Denny Schleper. “When we add new capabilities or enter new markets, it’s because we see that we can have a significant positive effect on the people, clients and communities that surround us.”

Also joining CLA are Gottlieb, Flekier & Co. of Overland Park, Kan., Milwaukee-based Titus and Stanislawski & Harrison CPAs of Pasadena, Calif.
