Our Strategic Mergers & Acquisitions

In 2022, our 90th anniversary, the senior management team at Marshall & Stevens set a course to aggressively seek out compatible firms to accelerate our growth, increase and diversify our talent, and be of greater service to the public and private companies we serve.

Our acquisition strategy is to grow and evolve by adding professionals who deliver and value excellence as much as we do.  Our desire is to attract teams that will collaborate with our existing staff, introduce us to new ideas and ways to approach analyses, and to carry us into new client and referral relationships.  To add people who are willing to share their unique knowledge, insight, and experience, and who look forward to being part of a bigger, collaborative firm that embraces growth and never settles for “the way it has always been done.”

We are targeting firms that will expand us geographically and into other specialties to deepen our relationships with our clients and referral sources, while introducing their clients and referral sources to Marshall & Stevens. Below is a list of the recent acquisitions made by Marshall & Stevens.
