Sikich Merges With O'Donnell, Bonebrake & Co.

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - September 16, 2013) -  Sikich LLP, a leading professional services firm, is pleased to announce its recent merger with O'Donnell, Bonebrake & Co. (OBCPA), a St. Louis-based public accounting firm. Effective September 1, the professionals from OBCPA, now operating under the Sikich name, are located in Sikich's St. Louis office at 12655 Olive Boulevard, Suite 200.

"Adding the OBCPA team to our practice in St. Louis is an exciting endeavor, as the team is well-known for providing top-quality, thorough accounting, auditing and tax services to their clients," said Mike Stelmacki, partner-in-charge of Sikich's St. Louis office. "As our team develops, it increases resources and opportunities that we can offer our clients, ultimately benefiting their long-term business goals. We are looking forward to reaching new heights with our growing team."

OBCPA's principals bring with them decades of experience in the areas of accounting, audit and tax services, and they service privately held companies, many of which are in the greater St. Louis area.

Mark J. O'Donnell, CPA and James M. Bonebrake, CPA will join Sikich as partners. O'Donnell has nearly 40 years of experience in business consulting, accounting and auditing. Specializing in strategic planning, budgeting, succession, deferred compensation, financing, and financial statement design and analysis, he focuses on providing practical solutions to clients' business challenges. Bonebrake has been in public accounting since 1980 and previously served as an auditor with the Internal Revenue Service, as well as an accountant with a major defense contractor. He specializes in quality control for compliance services and tax consulting. Both O'Donnell and Bonebrake are associated with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants.

An additional five individuals will join Sikich's already talented team of accountants and auditors, including:

  • Kevin Green, manager
  • Karen Davis, senior accountant
  • Dean Crossley, staff accountant
  • Rachael Haas, staff accountant
  • Nathan Laurentius, staff accountant

"By merging with Sikich, we will have significant, increased access to resources and enhanced capabilities that will benefit our existing clients tremendously by helping them reach new levels of growth and success," said O'Donnell. "Our clients will continue receiving the same personal service from the same individuals that they have in the past, and I am confident this transition will be seamless and advantageous for all."
