Kroening Stangel Swetlik & Zinkel LLP to Join Schenck SC

Appleton, Wis.-based Schenck SC (FY13 net revenue of $69.7 million) announced that it has entered into an agreement to merge with Kroening, Stangel, Swetlik & Zinkel LLP of Manitowoc, Wis. Kroening, Stangel, Swetlik & Zinkel LLP provides accounting and tax services to family-owned and privately held businesses as well as non-profit organizations throughout Manitowoc and the surrounding area. The transaction is expected to close in May 2015.

“We’ve been part of the Manitowoc community since 2000,” says Tom Giesen, managing shareholder of Schenck’s Manitowoc office. “Over the years, we’ve gotten to know the team from Kroening, Stangel, Swetlik & Zinkel and have been impressed with their integrity and strong reputation in this market. We can meet the needs of the Manitowoc business community even better as a combined team, and are pleased to be joining together with them.”

“Schenck continues to focus on strategic growth, and Kroening, Stangel, Swetlik & Zinkel will be a strong complement to our firm,” says Greg Barber, president of Schenck. “We have a similar approach to client service, which has driven growth for both our firms.”

The employees of Kroening, Stangel, Swetlik & Zinkel will continue at their present location through April, and will move to Schenck’s offices in Manitowoc in May.
