Padgett Stratemann, one of Texas’ largest, locally-owned CPA and business advisory firms with offices in San Antonio, Austin and Houston, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to join RSM US LLP (RSM), the leading U.S. provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market. In this transaction, RSM will acquire substantially all the assets of Padgett Stratemann. The transaction is expected to close August 16, 2016.

As part of RSM, Padgett Stratemann clients will have access to expanded resources and services offered through RSM’s international global network. Padgett Stratemann has been associated with RSM for 21 years as part of RSM’s U.S. Alliance program.

“By joining forces with RSM, we are taking the natural next step in our growth strategy,” said John Wright, managing partner for Padgett Stratemann. “We have a strong relationship with RSM and its people, and we are very excited about the opportunity to expand our services for the benefit of our clients, partners and employees. We’re pleased to join a firm that offers global capabilities with a small-firm culture.”

RSM and Padgett Stratemann will combine to become the fifth largest firm in Texas – with 700 employees, and offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio – and the leading firm focused on serving the middle market in the state, across the country and around the world.

“Padgett Stratemann’s outstanding professionals, strong industry niches and great clients will strengthen our momentum in Texas and beyond,” said Kevin Prien, RSM US LLP’s Central region managing partner. “Our shared values and commitment to serving our clients, employees and communities make Padgett Stratemann a great fit and the best choice for RSM to enhance its presence in Texas.”
