San Diego, CA. June 23, 2017 – Pro Back Office LLC. (PBO), a leader in providing operational accounting, finance and strategic consulting services, announces the acquisition of the west coast governance risk and compliance (GRC) group from IPSA International to compliment its current strategic consulting practice.  PBO adds four senior consultants, including thirty-year veteran Randy Barnes, to help PBO clients with “best practices” strategies and plans to address strategic, governance, risk and compliance business issues.

“The acquisition of this group was a natural fit for our company as we looked to expand our services to meet our clients’ growing needs,” says Mike Ford, PBO Co-Founder.    “Randy and the other members of the team bring 90 years of proven success in this critical area of expertise. Over the last few years, we have gained a strong reputation for providing teams of outstanding professionals to accounting departments across the region. Today, we can now offer strategic consulting services covering business operations, forensic and internal audit support, Sarbanes Oxley compliance, M&A support activities and technical accounting support, to help our clients strengthen their business operations, internal controls and compliance practices.”

Randy Barnes, Director of PBO Business Advisory Services added, “We’re delighted to join the PBO team. Our expertise and experience will definitely compliment PBO’s current pool of talented resources, bringing a more comprehensive package of professional services to our clients.”

 To accommodate the addition of these new services, PBO reorganized itself into two key sectors; Operational Accounting Services (OAS) and Strategic Consulting Services (SCS), which will include GRC services.
