PP&G Joins BKD

Bill Pickert, MP of the Wichita, Kan., office for Springfield, Mo.-based BKD (FY15 net revenue of $496 million), announces that Peterson, Peterson & Goss (PP&G) will join the BKD team, effective Dec. 1.

“BKD and PP&G are a natural fit,” Pickert says. “BKD’s culture of unmatched client service melds well with PP&G’s philosophy of offering practical business solutions with deep expertise and personal attention. In addition, both firms are committed to providing rewarding career opportunities for their associates as well as contributing time and resources to the Wichita community.”

Founded in 1950, PP&G is one of Wichita’s leading CPA and advisory firms, with a range of services that includes business management and financial planning. The BKD team welcomes a staff of 13, including two partners – Greg Sevier, who currently serves as PP&G MP and John Goss. The PP&G staff will relocate to BKD’s office.

“This is going to have huge benefits for PP&G, BKD and our clients,” Sevier says. “Our combined expertise and resources will take us to new heights of service for an increasingly complex mix of clients.”

BKD’s thought leadership spans many industries and service areas, including wealth management, private equity, corporate finance, business transition, international business, forensics, valuation and technology. PP&G serves many of the same industries as BKD, including health care, manufacturing, construction, energy, agriculture franchises and financial services.

Once the acquisition is finalized, BKD will expand its market presence in south central Kansas by adding roughly 1,500 clients served by PP&G.
