Combination Strengthens BDO’s Presence with Federal Government Agencies

Chicago, IL – BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading accounting and consulting firms, today announced an expansion of its public sector practice through the addition of Hilton Consulting, a Virginia-based consulting firm that assists government clients in creating and executing strategies to achieve measurable improvements in operational and financial performance.  Hilton Consulting, founded in 1996, provides working capital fund planning, cost modeling, strategic planning, best practices research and business process reengineering services to federal government clients. The firm’s enterprise data analytics solutions enable clients to make more informed decisions on resource allocation and performance management.  This transaction with Hilton Consulting, which brings approximately 25 staff to BDO, is effective immediately.
“I want to welcome Steve Hilton and his team to BDO,” said Mark Ellenbogen, National Leader of BDO USA’s Public Sector Practice.  “We are extremely pleased to build on our existing presence with federal government agencies by adding these highly-valued resources to our national public sector practice.  Hilton has been working with major government agencies for more than 20 years - through multiple administrations – which is a testament to the quality insight and advice they bring to each client relationship.”

“Hilton Consulting has a long history of serving the federal government community as a trusted advisor for achieving operational and financial improvement.  By joining BDO, we will leverage the firm’s national brand and global resources to build on that strong tradition to reach the next level of growth,” said Steve Hilton, Founder and CEO of Hilton Consulting.  “Clients will continue to receive the close personal attention that they have come to expect from Hilton Consulting’s team, but now they will have access to a wider array of solutions and the full coverage of BDO's global network.  Equally important, BDO has a well-earned reputation as a favorable workplace and our people will have opportunities to serve a broader client base.”
