Tustin-Based HMWC CPAs & Business Advisors to Join Top 25 Firm Eide Bailly

March 5, 2020

California CPA firm HMWC CPAs & Business Advisors will become part of regional certified public accounting and business advisory firm Eide Bailly on July 20, 2020.

The combination will add an Orange County office to Eide Bailly, a $387 million top 25 CPA firm in the nation with 10 offices in California. HMWC’s deep knowledge and expertise will further establish Eide Bailly as an industry leader in California helping mid-market organizations tackle challenges and spur growth.

“The addition of HMWC enhances our California team with a strong commitment to client service, talented staff and a culture that matches our own dedication to being a firm of choice for clients and staff,” said Dave Stende, Eide Bailly managing partner/CEO. “We look forward to strengthening our existing relationships in California and building new ones.”

HMWC has built a strong reputation over its 52-year history, consistently demonstrating its commitment to clients and its expertise in several industries including medical, dental, construction, and real estate. Steve Williams, managing partner at HMWC, says the opportunities that will come with joining Eide Bailly will bring growth for both clients and staff.

“Joining forces with Eide Bailly will help us serve our clients even better by allowing us to offer additional resources and services to our clients that will help them achieve their goals,” said Williams.  “We will be able to enhance our ability to serve our clients with additional expertise and talent in areas such as technology consulting, specialized tax services and more that will help them succeed in today’s business environment.  Our staff will also benefit with more opportunities for learning and growth in order to pursue their passions, which in turn will enrich our clients’ experiences.”

Koltin Consulting Group and Gary Shamis of Winding River Consulting advised both firms during the deal.

“Congratulations on this continued expansion in California,” said Allan D. Koltin, CEO of Koltin Consulting Group. “HMWC had opportunities with many regional and national firms, but the culture match with Eide Bailly, as well as the leadership and growth opportunities for both clients and their people, made this a great match between two high performing and well-respected firms.”
