Chicago, IL – BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional service organizations, today announced an expansion into the Utah market through the addition of 64 staff, including 10 partners, from Mantyla McReynolds, LLC.  Founded in 1989, Mantyla McReynolds provides a full range of accounting and consulting services to a diversified client base of public and private businesses.  The firm has significant strength in the technology and life sciences, real estate, hospitality and entertainment, equipment leasing, outdoor recreation and ski resorts, auto dealerships, and manufacturing and distribution industries. Based in Salt Lake City, the firm has been a member of BDO Alliance USA since 2008.  The combination of BDO and Mantyla McReynolds is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed on July 1, 2016.
“I want to welcome all of the partners and staff formerly with Mantyla McReynolds to BDO. This combination provides BDO with a sizable presence with excellent growth potential in the important Salt Lake market," said Wayne Berson, CEO of BDO USA.  “Through our previous Alliance relationship, we have a history of collaboration on client work and business development with our new partners and staff.  This familiarity will be extremely valuable as we integrate the practice with BDO.”
“For the entire eight years we have been members of the BDO Alliance USA, we have thoroughly enjoyed working with the BDO partners and staff.  BDO has a very compatible service philosophy that will make our transition into the firm as seamless as possible,” said Kim McReynolds, Managing Partner of Mantyla McReynolds. “We've established a long history of creating strong relationships with some of Utah’s largest entrepreneurial companies, many with national and international reach.  By combining with BDO we will build on that tradition by bringing our clients a wider array of solutions, broader industry experience, and the full coverage of BDO's global network.  BDO has a very similar culture to our own and the firm’s reputation as a favorable workplace also fits well with our focus on our people, who will now have access to many more opportunities to pursue career growth.” 
Like BDO USA, Mantyla McReynolds has been recognized by numerous business and industry publications for its workplace accomplishments.  It has been named one of the “Best Accounting Firms to Work for” by Accounting Today for five consecutive years and one of the “Best Companies to Work for” by Utah Business.  In addition, Mantyla McReynolds is the 2016 recipient of the coveted Best in State award in the business services/accounting category.  The award recognizes achievement in a business’s field, innovation in techniques and processes and contribution to quality of life in Utah.
