BKD Names New M&D Growth Initiative Leaders
NATIONAL OFFICE – Exciting changes are on the horizon for BKD Manufacturing & Distribution Group (M&D). M&D National Industry Partner John Mather is pleased to announce that Managing Director Tim Reynolds is the new leader for the food and agribusiness practice and Partner Tim Jackson is the new leader of the technology and software practice.
Reynolds will continue to provide tax and operational consulting services to a variety of clients in the food industry. Reynolds has several years of experience working with food manufacturers, producers, retailers and wholesalers across the country and joined BKD earlier this year after working for a large accounting firm.
“I have a strong passion for the food industry and am excited to share my expertise across the firm with our food and agriculture-serving professionals. The food industry is currently experiencing unprecedented challenges across all channels and I’m looking forward to helping BKD create solutions and opportunities for our clients and our people,” Reynolds said.
Jackson currently leads the Dallas office’s technology team. With 25 years of experience, his primary focus is working with private equity-backed technology companies in a variety of industries, including those publicly traded.
“I’m very excited to lead the technology and software group and believe that we’ll continue to find new ways to address the complex and evolving needs of tech-savvy consumers,” Jackson said.
Mather said, “I couldn’t be more pleased to see these two elevated to their new roles and look forward to working with them as they take their respective practices to new heights. I know we’ll continue to expand nationally, and I’m excited to continue working together to support our clients and their investors.”
Their predecessors both received promotions. Partner Bryan Wright became the new East Region M&D industry leader and Partner John Kmetz is the new leader of the firm’s private equity practice. BKD’s strong culture and focus on putting the right people in the right places has helped the firm develop a strong succession plan and leadership base as it continues to focus on innovation to offer unique solutions for a rapidly changing world.
