Sikich LLP has merged in two IT service consulting firms, Hal Weinberger Consulting and MAS Consulting, in the latest examples of the firm’s merger spree.

Last month, the Aurora, Ill.-based firm announced that it had merged with a design firm, Icon Digital Design & Illustration, which it had been using for marketing services, and a local accounting, tax and consulting practice, Frederick M. Marcus & Co. In November, it merged with another Illinois accounting practice, Sleeper Disbrow Morrison Tarro & Lively. The trend began last August, when Sikich announced that it had acquired an M&A advisory firm, Levi Littell Herbst & Co.

The mergers with Hal Weinberger Consulting and MAS Consulting bring a pair of Chicago-based providers of business software and information technology infrastructure services under the Sikich umbrella. The merger took effect Jan. 1.

The current owners of MAS Consulting, Michael Suglich and Dennis Suglich, will be joining Sikich as partners in the firm’s Chicago office, as will HWC owner Hal Weinberger. All HWC and MAS Consulting employees will be joining the Sikich team.

Both HWC and MAS Consulting specialize in implementing and supporting Microsoft Dynamics enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management business applications, as well as IT infrastructure services and telecommunications systems.

“Growth in this area is a strategic objective of ours and this helps us towards that goal,” said Sikich partner–in-charge of technology Jeff Rudolph. “I also feel strongly that the clients of all three firms will be better served with the increase in the available resources and services, such as expanding our Microsoft Dynamics SL practice and the introduction of telephony services.”

Sikich has more than 350 employees and 10 offices in Aurora, Buffalo Grove, Chicago, Decatur, Naperville, Rockford, and Springfield, Ill.; Indianapolis, Ind.; St. Louis, Mo.; and New York, N.Y. The firm ranked 70th on Accounting Today’s 2009 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $42 million in revenue.
