Respected Valley Accounting Firm Merges with National CPA Advisory

Leading advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly US, LLP and full-service accounting and advisory firm Henry+Horne, LLP announce their intent to combine effective Dec. 1.

In the last three years, Baker Tilly has expanded its geographic presence from coast to coast, strategically pinpointing the right markets with the right talent, such as Squar Milner of California, The MFA Companies of Boston, Bader Martin of Seattle and now Henry+Horne of Arizona.

Arizona continues to be a hotspot for business and innovation, especially in technology and manufacturing. Henry+Horne has had a front-row seat to this economic growth for the past 65 years.

“The business activity happening in Arizona makes it a prime entry point to the Southwest and a natural extension of our west coast presence,” said Steve Milner, Baker Tilly regional managing partner – Western U.S. “Henry+Horne is deeply engrained in the business momentum happening there.”

Henry+Horne is known for its talented team members, strong leadership and enduring client relationships. Their well-earned and -respected reputation is known across the state and beyond and is poised to flourish when aligned with Baker Tilly’s future-forward strategy.

“We recognized how this union would allow us to bring even more value to our clients while continuing to deliver the exceptional relationship-based service they expect from us,” said Chuck Goodmiller, Henry+Horne co-managing partner. “And that means thinking first about what this means for our people. We looked for a firm with a strong commitment to its people, and we found it with Baker Tilly.”

Goodmiller will become Baker Tilly’s managing partner for the Arizona market, and the firm’s 160 professionals will join Baker Tilly. As part of the integration, Henry+Horne’s Co-Managing Partner Chuck Inderieden has decided to step down in his role of co-managing partner and will continue to maintain his focus on his client relationships and business development. Inderieden will continue to work closely with Goodmiller to support and guide a smooth combination and foster growth opportunities for clients and team members.

“I am thrilled for the enormous opportunities this combination brings to our team members and the expanded capabilities we can now bring to our clients,” Inderieden said. “I can’t wait to see all that we will accomplish together.”

Allan D. Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group, who advised both firms on the combination, said, “Henry+Horne’s admirable reputation made it an attractive partner to a number of other top accounting and consulting firms wanting to grow in the Southwest. Baker Tilly stood out for their vision and strategy that leads to endless possibilities for their clients and people.”
