Sensiba San Filippo LLP (SSF), a leading San Francisco Bay Area accounting and business consulting firm, is pleased to announce the acquisition of The Resultants, Inc., a boutique sized consulting firm specializing in internal audit and SOX compliance services. The acquisition looks to expand Sensiba San Filippo’s consulting practice and grow their presence in the publicly held company space.

The Resultants team will be integrated into the Corporate Governance and Compliance Consulting Practice led by SSF Partner, Frank Balestreri. As a part of SSF’s expanding consulting practice, the group will maintain its existing emphasis on turn-key, custom and scalable solutions for small to medium sized public companies. Legacy professionals of The Resultant’s, including founder Kevin Shives, will continue to serve their existing clients as well as SSF’s growing client base in internal audit and SOX compliance.

“We are pleased to welcome The Resultants to Sensiba San Filippo and welcome Founder, Kevin Shives, to SSF as a Partner,” said Frank Balestreri, Partner at Sensiba San Filippo. “As a firm, we believe that in order to strengthen the level of value we bring to clients we must grow both organically as well as by acquisition of impeccable talent. This newly combined team will blend a robust consulting practice with established SOX and internal audit specialists, making us the solution of choice for small to mid-size public companies and companies contemplating going public in the Bay Area.”

“Joining the Sensiba San Filippo team will allow us to expand our offerings beyond traditional internal audit and SOX compliance,” said Kevin Shives, Founder of The Resultants and newly named Partner at Sensiba San Filippo. “We have already experienced tremendous synergy and partnership, and we look forward to expanding our reach and offering our clients additional services and expertise.”
