HLB, the global network of independent advisory and accounting firms, welcomes Knoxville, Tenn.-based PYA (FY18 net revenue of $49.3 million) as its newest member firm in the United States.

With a team of 300 in five offices, PYA provides a multitude of services, including tax, health care consulting, audit and assurance.

“Membership in HLB enhances our ability to serve clients because it allows us to tap into additional audit, accounting and tax resources that span the globe,” says Mike Shamblin, managing principal of audit and assurance services. “This collaboration allows us to share expertise and best practices with other HLB-network firms and leverage experience throughout the network, as needed, to better assist our clients.”

“We are honored that HLB identified PYA as a firm that would align with its goals for growth in the U.S.,” says Shamblin. “Our client-centric focus based on long-term client relationships fits well with HLB’s goals. We are excited about the opportunities this membership affords our clients and how we can assist other member firms with their client needs.”

As an independent member of the HLB Network, PYA’s private ownership structure will remain unchanged. PYA is ranked No. 90 on the 2019 IPA 100 list of largest accounting firms in the nation.
