In 2017, the principles of global accountancy and financial consulting firm SGP Capital Holdings AG decided to expand their accounting presence to the US. Already aware of Atlanta-based accounting firm BJM – Bach, James, Mansour & Company, SGP took a financial interest in BJM. Together they formed BJM Group, and started actively acquiring accounting firms in Georgia and Florida. SGP and BJM Group share the same unique business model – buy successful businesses, retain the talent and brands, and invest to grow the revenue and profits for all.

Yes, but that’s your choice. You may continue leading your office for a period of time, or turn that responsibility over to an existing or new team member so that you can focus on doing what you love to do – working with clients, building new business relationships, and improving your golf game. We’ll work with you on the approach that best meets your needs as well as the growth plans for your office.

BJM Group invests in a variety of ways, including office, infrastructure, technology, staff, marketing, and operations. You will also have access to a global team of financial experts. Together we will remove the hassles associated with running your firm so you can focus on what you love to do. Let’s define what that is, and then get started.

Your ongoing involvement in your firm (and legacy) is critical to the long-term success of the BJM Group approach. We’ll agree on your tenure during our business discussions, but principals normally choose to stay on from 3-5 years. We prefer longer-term involvement, and your role can also change over time – from full-time to part-time to emeritus status.

Only as we provide your team with more resources, streamlined business operations, and enhanced growth opportunities! We want to retain your talented team members, giving them opportunities to grow within your firm and also across the company. In addition to adding local resources, your team will also have access to regional and global expertise not previously available.

Yes – that’s your legacy! You have invested years of your life establishing and operating your firm. We want to build on that success.

The structure and approach depends on your business, clients, and personal goals. Typically, there are up-front payments as well as ongoing incentives that reward you for your continued involvement and business growth. Let’s set up an introductory call to discuss your needs.
Yes. Compensation, including salary and growth incentives, will be an important part of our business discussions. The more time and energy that you are willing to invest in your firm’s growth and success, the more we’d like to share with you.

BJM Group’s model works best when the principals stay on for a smooth transition, enjoying reduced responsibilities over time. Let’s discuss options. We think you may change your mind.

That’s up to you. Let’s work something out that makes sense for everyone.
