Evanich Accounting purchases K.W. Hoopes; retains staff, locations

Evanich Accounting & Tax LLC has purchased K.W. Hoopes & Associates and will retain the locations and staff members of both firms.

Kenny Hoopes, CPA, CFA, founded K.W. Hoopes & Associates in 1985, and he is beginning the transition to retirement.

“My staff and I look forward to joining the Evanich team. We have already begun working with Rudy and his staff to integrate our systems,” Hoopes said.

Rudy Evanich, CPA, and Judie Evanich founded Evanich Accounting & Tax in 1983, and the firm has grown over the years to include their daughters, Heather Evanich Husted, CPA, and Ashley Evanich Zahn.

“I appreciate Kenny’s desire to make an orderly transition on the path to retirement and allowing my firm the opportunity to be a part of that,” said Rudy. “I’m also pleased that his staff has agreed to continue working with us to serve you as they have in the past. In meeting with Kenny’s staff, I was impressed with their knowledge and professionalism and look forward to them being on our team.”

The Evanich Accounting & Tax team offers expertise in tax, accounting and financial services for individuals and businesses, as well as QuickBooks. They make it their business to know their clients’ business well enough to improve tax position, capital position, business structure and benefits packages, acquisition potential, and more.

The firm has been built on a tradition of service, technical expertise and innovative thinking to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world. The experience and academic credentials of the Evanich Accounting partners and staff provide clients with the expertise of larger firms, while they remain committed to superior customer service, with a personal, one-on-one approach.

In addition to the Evaniches, Hoopes, Husted, and Zahn, the Evanich Accounting & Tax team includes Lori Gulling, Michelle Dustman, Michael Pence, Lucinda Hoopes, Richard Wunderlich, Susan Terry, Diana Hintz, Carol Toussant, and Jennifer Jackson.
