Tanner LLC, Utah’s premier public accounting firm, has named Mark V. Erickson as Managing Partner. He succeeds Jeffrey G. Bickel who will continue as a senior partner of the firm.
In his new role, Erickson will oversee more than 200 employees and be responsible for the vision, strategic direction, and growth of the firm. Tanner LLC has consistently been named by IPA as one of the best 50 accounting firms in the United States and serves a large clientele of private and publicly held companies. Tanner has consistently been recognized nationally as a top firm because of its growth, quality, and culture.
A 25+ year veteran of the company, Erickson will continue to serve as the head of the firm’s Transaction Advisory Services Group, along with his new role of Managing Partner. “I love Tanner and its people and want to continue our technology-driven approach to pursue new opportunities and challenges, while still prioritizing a commitment to focused client service,” he said.
Erickson received a Master’s of Accountancy in 1995 from Utah State University and began his career in public accounting with Tanner LLC. After four years with Tanner, he accepted a position with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, DC. After spending two years with the SEC, Mark rejoined Tanner in 2000 and soon thereafter was promoted to partner. He has been serving as a partner in the firm ever since.
He is a Certified Public Accountant and served on the Advisory Board for the Utah State University School of Accountancy from 2005 to 2012, and has been a member of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business National Advisory Board since 2012 and served as its Chairman.
