Baker Tilly Elects Alan D. Whitman to Third Term as CEO

·2 min read

Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly US, LLP (Baker Tilly) announces the election of Alan Whitman to a third three-year term as chief executive officer. The firm’s board of partners’ election and overwhelming ratification by its partnership comes just midway through Whitman’s second term and extends his tenure through May 31, 2025.

"I am honored by the confidence my fellow partners place in me and our strategy," Whitman said. "I look forward to continuing our work together as we build the advisory CPA firm of the future, today."

As CEO of Baker Tilly, Whitman sets the pace for the firm’s success – from strategy design and execution to growing market presence, unprecedented team member engagement and strong financial health. Since becoming CEO in 2016, Whitman and his leadership team have doubled the firm’s annual revenue.

Under Whitman’s leadership, Baker Tilly has bolstered its scale to give clients a genuine coast-to-coast and global advantage with a strong presence in many of the world’s leading financial centers – New York, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago. In the last two years, Baker Tilly expanded its Texas presence in four of the five largest cities in the state and entered California, the fifth largest economy in the world.

In addition to its geographic footprint, Baker Tilly is strengthening its capabilities with several strategic acquisitions. These include digital solutions, municipal advisory, global forensic accounting, valuation and litigation services, and outsourced and managed services.

"We’re driving progress for a new world to benefit our clients and our team members," Whitman said. "I am proud to lead such talented, dedicated professionals who work every day to enhance and protect our clients’ value and to foster an engaging and collaborative workplace."
