Jeremy Hauk has officially begun his tenure as the new CEO/Managing Partner of top 25 CPA and business advisory firm Eide Bailly.
First announced last September, Hauk’s transition to CEO/Managing Partner became official May 1, 2022. He succeeds Dave Stende, who had served as CEO/Managing Partner of the firm since 2013.
Hauk’s vision to grow the firm relies on continuing what he calls the intensely client-focused service Eide Bailly is known for as well as further investment in its staff members and the advanced solutions and expertise organizations need to stay competitive in today’s marketplace, such as data analytics, technology consulting, cybersecurity and specialty tax services.
“I am grateful and excited to be leading the firm in what is an incredible time for business and organizations to be operating,” said Hauk. “Leaders across all industries are realizing the vast opportunities available to them if they are willing to innovate and embrace change. Eide Bailly will be there to help them reach their potential, meet their goals and build stronger communities.”
Hauk previously served as Partner-in-Charge of Tax Services at Eide Bailly and has also served as Chairman of the Eide Bailly Board of Directors and as the Tax Department Head of the firm’s Billings, Mont., office, where he works and resides. Since joining the firm, Hauk has provided tax, consulting and business advisory services to a diverse group of clients from a wide range of industries, including financial institutions, real estate, dentist and physician groups, as well as income tax and estate planning for individuals.
