CliftonLarsonAllen is merging in the Texas accounting firm Sanford, Baumeister & Frazier, LLP, effective Sept. 1, 2015, bolstering CLA’s footprint in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

SB&F’s team of 50 will join CLA’s more than 60 professionals in Dallas. As part of the deal, SB&F managing partner Rick Baumeister and partner Allyson Baumeister will assume leadership roles in CLA’s Dallas and Fort Worth offices, respectively.

“Our goal has always been to help keep businesses successful and families prosperous,” said Rick Baumeister. “We do that by offering excellence, skill, and breadth of experience—wrapped in a highly approachable style.”

Allyson Baumeister said her firm had been approached in the past to join other firms, but the answer was always no because there wasn’t a cultural fit. “CLA is different,” she added.

CLA, based in Minneapolis, ranked 10th on Accounting Today’s 2015 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $598.4 million in annual revenue. The firm has nearly 4,000 people at 90 locations in the U.S.
