BPM Expands in Southern California With Kramer & Olsen Merger

San Francisco-based BPM LLP (FY17 net revenue of $89.6 million) has announced it is combining with Kramer & Olsen Accountancy Corporation of Santa Ana, Calif.

BPM CEO Jim Wallace says the combined firm, which will operate as BPM, “will bring enhanced career opportunities to our people and greater access to services for our clients.”

Kramer & Olsen provides clients with a variety of accounting and consulting services across a broad range of industries. The firm’s 14 employees will join BPM’s approximately 470 personnel and 40 partners.

“BPM’s brand promise, ‘Because People Matter,’ is what drew us to the firm,” says Kramer & Olsen MP David Jorgensen. “BPM’s strong go-to-market industry concentration and specialized advisory service offerings, combined with our deep roots in Southern California, allows us to serve clients in an extraordinary way – both domestically and internationally.”

Jorgensen will join BPM as partner and will continue to serve as the MP of the existing Kramer & Olsen Orange County office. Founding partner Gary Kramer will join BPM as “Of Counsel.”
