Post Categories: News Updates

HSMC Orizon CPAs, Business and Technology Consultants, a professional services firm with offices in Lee’s Summit and Omaha, Neb., announced a merger.

Closing Nov. 1, HSMC Orizon will combine with BerganKDV, headquartered in St. Cloud, Minn., and will operate under the BerganKDV brand.

The acquisition results in an expanded Midwest reach for BerganKDV. Forty-five employees and six partners at HSMC Orizon will bring the employee total at BerganKDV to 400.

BerganKDV offers solution-based consulting for individuals and companies managing business, financial and technology challenges. With the addition of HSMC Orizon, the firm increases its versatility through tax, audit and accounting; business planning and consulting; wealth management; and technology, payroll and HR management services.

BerganKDV CEO Dave Hinnenkamp values growth through acquisition. After stepping into the role in July, the HSMC Orizon merger marks one of his first accomplishments.

“Integrating HSMC Orizon into the fold enhances the services we offer clients and gives us the opportunity to better serve clients throughout the Midwest,” Hinnenkamp said. “We’re laser-focused on empowering our staff while creating exceptional experiences for our clients, and the merger solidifies that commitment to those we serve. HSMC Orizon is an award-winning firm that’s recognized for its excellence not only by our industry and in local business communities.”

HSMC Orizon’s Managing Partner Gene Garrelts highlights BerganKDV’s commitment to his existing staff, clients and community.

“Early in merger discussions, we could see BerganKDV carried the same level of care and commitment HSMC Orizon carries toward employees, community and clients,” said Garrelts. “Our employees, clients and the community will enjoy more resources available to them as our organization continues to grow.”

HSMC Orizon was honored by Thinking Bigger Business Media as a 25 Under 25 Award winner in 2012.

BerganKDV now has offices in Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota.
