St. Cloud, Minn.-based BerganKDV (FY17 net revenue of $47.9 million) named Dave Hinnenkamp as CEO, effective July 1, 2018. Hinnenkamp is currently serving as BerganKDV’s wealth management PIC, a position he has held with the firm for the past 16 years.

A 34-year veteran of the firm, Hinnenkamp began his career at BerganKDV in 1984 as a staff accountant and rose through the ranks to become partner in 1992. In 2002, Hinnenkamp was responsible for the launch of BerganKDV Wealth Management as a startup entity. As a long-standing member of the firm’s leadership team, Hinnenkamp has been instrumental in guiding and developing the culture and structure of the organization.

“I have spent nearly one half of my career working on the CPA side of our business and the other half building the wealth management line of business, giving me a unique perspective. Human capital is our primary asset and my intention is to focus significant effort on attracting, retaining and developing talent and ensuring those talents are unleashed to grow and improve our firm,” says Hinnenkamp.

“The board of directors have worked diligently to identify the leadership traits, qualifications, core responsibilities and accountabilities needed to ensure our firm’s continued success,” says board chair Earl Edeburn, “We are confident that Dave has the perfect mix of technical expertise and even more important, passion around our firm’s vision, to lead our team as we continue to grow and thrive.”

Hinnenkamp succeeds current president and CEO Loren Viere, a 40-year veteran of the firm, who will remain on staff to continue to service clients and consult on merger and acquisition activity.
