EisnerAmper, a mid-market accounting and consulting firm, has acquired Keating Consulting Group (KCG), a Silicon Valley–based accounting and consulting firm.

Founded in 2000, KCG provides interim chief financial officer and outsourced back office services in finance, accounting, and human resources to venture capital-backed and early-stage companies. The firm’s startup-savvy consultants help clients manage financial strategy and planning, accounting processes, forecasting, and presentations to the board.

The San Mateo, CA-based firm has a staff of 55 people led by managing partner Ryan Keating. Prior to founding his consulting firm, Keating was a senior associate at PwC and an associate at business consultancy The Michel-Shaked Group.

EisnerAmper’s acquisition of KCG will bolster the firm’s outsourced finance and accounting service capabilities as well as its presence in the Bay Area, where it has an office in San Francisco. The New York-headquartered firm will expand its US office count to 16.

"Keating is highly regarded in the startup space as a proven provider of financial infrastructures and operational systems,” Charly Weinstein, CEO of EisnerAmper, said. “We're delighted to welcome them to the EisnerAmper family."

The accounting and consulting firm earlier this month grew its Florida operations with the purchase of Caler, Donten & Levine, an accountancy with approximately 100 professionals in the Sunshine State.

EisnerAmper – which has approximately 2,200 people across the US, Cayman Islands, UK, Israel, and India – earlier this year received a significant investment from TowerBrook Capital Partners.

“Joining the EisnerAmper team and combining our resources places our mission of growing startups on a much bigger stage,” Keating said. “Under the larger EisnerAmper umbrella, we can also offer our startup clients a seamless path forward as their finance and accounting needs grow beyond early stage."
