SAN FRANCISCO—BPM LLP, one of the 50 largest public accounting and advisory firms in the country, has acquired the Human Resources Consulting practice of Options4Growth, Inc. The combination magnifies BPM’s capabilities in outsourced consulting services, a quickly growing need for clients within the industry. Twelve professionals from Options4Growth will join BPM, including Jill Pappenheimer, MBA, SPHR as Partner.

“Expanding our outsourced capabilities with the talented consultants of Options4Growth allows us to further our specialized expertise to our rapidly growing and transitioning clients,” said BPM Advisory Practice Group Leader, Nick Steiner. “Our clients are at the center of our strategic growth efforts – the partnership with Options4Growth significantly accelerates and strengthens this initiative.”

“This partnership advances our commitment to strengthening our outsourced services, which already include business process outsourcing, technology solutions and outsourced CFO and Controller services,” added BPM CEO Jim Wallace.

Founded in 2012, Options4Growth grew with the mission to change the way companies engage with their people and the way people engage in their work. Options4Growth focuses on delivering outsourced people-centric consulting services that support sustainable growth for clients through a tailored, high touch approach.

“Combining with BPM allows us to significantly broaden our service offerings and reach,” added Options4Growth President and Co-founder, Jill Pappenheimer. “BPM has a long history of attributing its success to its people. The firm’s brand promise ‘because people matter,’ is a natural fit for us. We are excited to be on this journey together.”
