HoganTaylor Moves Its Oklahoma City Office

Oklahoma City OMP Richard Wright and the firm’s other Oklahoma City partners host a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Tulsa, Okla.-based HoganTaylor (FY18 net revenue of $47.3 million) has relocated its Oklahoma City office to a new, expanded space at 1225 N. Broadway Ave., Suite 200, in the city’s new Innovation District.

“In the accounting industry, we spend a lot of time thinking about the future and what changes may come as a result of new technology,” says Oklahoma City OMP Richard Wright. “At HoganTaylor, new technology is driving our transformation from a public accounting firm to a full-service business advisory firm. Our new space is a reflection of that transformation.”

The firm says the move not only accommodates additional growth but allows for greater participation in the city’s efforts to form innovative partnerships in the new district.

The new office is designed to allow for increased interoffice collaboration and idea sharing.

“The No. 1 thing that’s going to change for our profession is that our clients are going to demand that we help them get better and not just do their compliance work,” says Randy Nail, CEO of HoganTaylor. “Our new space fosters the kind of collaboration and innovation we’ll need to help our clients get better, but it’s just one of many ways we’re innovating our future at HoganTaylor.”

HoganTaylor is also investing in new service lines through a merger with RainRock IT Services. A new subsidiary, HoganTaylor Technology, began doing business Nov. 1, offering a suite of information technology services, including managed information technology services, outsourced CIO and technology solutions, cybersecurity services, and IT strategy and assessments.

“In the future, if a client needs anything related to a business issue, whether it’s an IT need, a marketing need, an HR need or really anything, we want HoganTaylor to be the first place they turn,” Nail says. “Our move in Oklahoma City and this beautiful new space both support that goal.”

HoganTaylor Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the Merger that Formed the Firm

Tulsa, Okla-based HoganTaylor (FY17 net revenue of $36.1 million) recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the merger that formed the firm.

HoganTaylor was formed out of a 2009 merger of two legacy firms–a pairing that would create a regional powerhouse that is today an IPA 200 firm.

“It’s hard to believe it has been 10 years since HoganTaylor was formed out of a shared vision and passion to elevate the clients we serve,” says Randy Nail, CEO of HoganTaylor. “In the years since the merger, we have accomplished so much together.”

To recognize these achievements and mark the occasion, Nail sat down with the firm’s lead advisory partner, Robert Wagner, to reflect on the last 10 years–how the firm has grown, why growth is important, and what’s next for HoganTaylor. To read the interview, visit
