NATIONAL OFFICE – BKD CEO Ted Dickman is pleased to announce that Paragon Audit & Consulting, Inc. will join the firm effective June 1, 2017.
“We want to extend a warm welcome to our new BKD team members,” Dickman said. “Paragon’s commitment to client service and true expertise will help us achieve our goals as we move forward.”
Paragon—a Denver-based firm specializing in internal audit and compliance—will grow the capabilities of both BKD’s National Advisory Services (NAS) region and Enterprise Risk Solutions (ERS) practice.
“With the addition of Paragon, our ERS practice will double in size,” said ERS Managing Partner Angela Morelock. “The combination strengthens BKD’s internal audit resources and provides Paragon enhanced growth opportunities and market presence throughout BKD’s geographic footprint.”
Paragon’s staff will join BKD’s downtown Denver office in the 1801 California building. With approximately 2,600 personnel—including more than 270 partners—BKD provides a wide range of assurance, tax and accounting outsourcing services.
“This is certainly a win-win situation for all involved,” says Galante. “We’re happy to be joining BKD and using our knowledge in internal audit to help better serve our clients and grow the firm.”
BKD has 35 offices in 16 states, and fiscal year 2016 revenues were $550 million. The firm also serves clients around the world as one of the largest U.S. members of Praxity, AISBL, a global alliance of independent firms that serves the dynamic needs of multinational clients.
