Baker Tilly US has announced its acquisition of accounting and advisory firm Seiler LLP (Seiler), effective 1 July 2024. This latest strategic acquisition positions the firm in the top five in the Bay Area. 

“The Bay Area market is a major business incubator on the West Coast and an international connection point,” said Baker Tilly Bay Area Managing Partner Lynette Stolarzyk. “Our combination with Seiler will enable us to continue growing and injecting innovation, value creation and an elevated customer experience in this pivotal market.”

“This combination will provide expansive resources, opportunities, technical expertise and service lines that will be of immense benefit to clients and employees, as well as a dynamic platform for smart, tactical growth,” said Seiler CEO George Marinos. “Baker Tilly shares our vision and bullishness for what is possible. In short, we are all in.” 

Marinos will become Baker Tilly’s Regional Tax Leader – Western US, succeeding Gabe Torre who will step into the role of Managing Partner – Western US.

Following Baker Tilly US’s recent transformative strategic investment from Hellman & Friedman and Valeas Capital Partners, the acquisition of Seiler marks a significant step forward. “This combination continues our strong track record of growth and underscores our dedication to innovation, delivering unparalleled client experiences and building the country’s pre-eminent mid-market advisory CPA firm," said Jeff Ferro, Baker Tilly US CEO.
