Chicago-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause  (FY15 net revenue of $478.1 million) admitted Gary Peric as the firm leader for its SALT practice.

In this role, Peric is responsible for expanding and overseeing the SALT practice in Baker Tilly’s national tax services group. He is based in the firm’s Chicago headquarters.

“After talking with Gary and seeing his experience included establishing a SALT group for a previous firm that grew to a successful practice, we knew he would be an excellent leader for our team,” says Joseph O’Neill, Baker Tilly tax MP. “We’re excited to see what he will accomplish with our already-strong practice.”

Peric has more than 20 years of experience working in state and local tax. He has been an MP and led SALT practices for large, international accounting and advisory firms. Most recently, he founded State Tax Foundation, which enabled him to identify and disseminate in a non-partisan manner significant tax insights to increase taxpayer literacy via public speaking and social media.

“Baker Tilly has a solid reputation in state and local taxation,” says Peric. “I’m looking forward to building an even more robust practice on that foundation.”
