The Strategic Valuation Group of Hill, Barth & King LLC has merged with Strategic Valuation Group of Warren, Ohio. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Strategic Valuation Group's managing director, Kelly L. Bianco, moved over to HBK as principal. The remaining staff will continue to carry out services in its Warren office.   

[IMGCAP(1)]“We are excited about combining our resources with HBK Valuation Group”, Bianco said in a statement. “We sought to integrate with a firm that could leverage the valuation expertise we’ve developed.  Additionally, we will have greater capabilities to address tax and forensic issues that often arise in the course of our litigation support projects.”

“Both HBK Valuation Group and Strategic Valuation Group have similar philosophies of a culture based on strong values, reliable world-class services and developing and maintaining team members focused on the success of their clients” added Joe Evans, principal and director of HBK Valuation Group. “Kelly and I have worked together in the past and have maintained a great professional relationship. I’m pleased to be working with her group and leveraging their extensive expertise.”
