NBS is now part of Crowe


On June 1, 2018, The NBS Group joined Crowe LLP and was integrated with the Banking Performance Services Group.  Crowe is one of the largest public accounting, consulting and technology firms in the US and is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

All NBS personnel have become employees of Crowe with Mark and Tom each holding Managing Director titles and leadership roles as the NBS team joins a highly complementary Crowe business unit while continuing to do the same thing that we do today – identify client needs and deliver the very best in consulting, project management and related services to banks and credit unions with integrity and objectivity.  With access to a broader pool of banking resources as part of Crowe, our team will be able to improve its capabilities to better meet our client needs.

Since 2009 NBS has partnered with community and regional financial institutions to provide solutions to complex challenges and opportunities in a timely and cost-effective manner.  Our resources possess extensive knowledge of banking strategies and operations and technology environments based upon our first hand financial institution experience with numerous clients of all types and sizes.  As part of Crowe, we will leverage the broader banking and technology capabilities of Crowe to provide our clients with an expanded set of capabilities while maintaining the same high-quality services provided by the resources that you have come to know under the same management.

During the last several years NBS and Crowe have partnered on select client engagements.  That working experience solidified the fact that both organizations share the same philosophy, culture and service standards and led to the conclusion that the integration of NBS with the team of Crowe professionals in the Banking Performance Services Group will create a more powerful combination of resources without sacrifice to the high-quality and cost-effective delivery of Performance Consulting, Technology Optimization and Vendor Management solutions.

Thank you for being a part of our new horizon.  We look forward to serving your needs in the years to come.


Please do not hesitate to contact either Mark or Tom with any questions or concerns that you may have regarding the integration of NBS with Crowe.
