Stout Launches Technical Accounting Consulting Practice

January 30, 2020

Stout is pleased to announce it has launched a Technical Accounting Consulting practice. The new practice offers a flexible and practical approach to technical accounting matters, and it complements Stout’s existing offerings, particularly Financial Reporting Valuation. The practice’s core areas of focus include: accounting implications of complex contracts; accounting memoranda and policies; journal entries; filing requirements; financial statement disclosures; and audit support, such as supporting schedules and discussions with auditors. 

In conjunction with this announcement, Stout welcomes Steve Hills as Managing Director and the National Leader of the Technical Accounting Consulting practice. With more than 15 years’ experience in accounting and financial leadership roles, Steve brings a diverse transaction background in technical accounting, financial reporting, and transaction advisory services. He has worked on numerous acquisitions and initial public offerings, serving a variety of industries including technology, consumer products, financial services, and energy.

Prior to joining Stout, Steve was a Managing Director and the Denver office leader with Riveron Consulting. Previously, he was CFO and Treasurer of a publicly traded venture capital fund. He also held management positions with PwC and EY and led global technical accounting and SEC reporting for a Fortune 500 company.

“Technical accounting is foundational to all forms of financial reporting valuation, and I believe that providing this joint expertise to our clients will be a differentiator for Stout,” Steve said. “Stout’s clients have consistently asked for this service, and I am excited to partner with our industry-leading valuation professionals in delivering it.”
