HoganTaylor announced today a merger agreement with Hartog, Kallenberger & Swarthout, PLLC (HKS). Following the official completion of the merging of the two firms on January 1, 2015, HKS will begin doing business as HoganTaylor.

Located in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Fayetteville, HoganTaylor is one of the largest public accounting firms in the Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas region with nearly 200 employees. They were recently recognized as a top 200 firm by INSIDE Public Accounting, ranking 120 in the nation based on size of accounting firms. Joining forces with HKS will allow the firm to broaden its services by bringing on additional construction industry expertise.

“Because our two firms share a similar culture and passion to exceed our clients’ service expectations, this merger is a win for both firms and the amazing clients we serve,” said Randy Nail, chief executive officer of HoganTaylor.

For more than 35 years, the partners of HKS have served a diverse array of clients throughout the state of Oklahoma, ranging from small, locally owned companies to major corporations. Once the merger is finalized, HKS staff will move into HoganTaylor’s offices located in Utica Place in Tulsa.

“We are very excited about this new pathway. The merger offers us the opportunity to provide our clients a wider range of services. In addition, a larger organization will offer our professionals the benefit of even stronger career and development opportunities,” said Paul Kallenberger, principal at HKS.
