Greg Burbach

Dubuque, Iowa-based Honkamp Krueger & Co. (FY17 net revenue of $71.9 million), an IPA 100 firm, has acquired Short & Company CPA of Waukee, Iowa, which is in the Des Moines area.

Greg Burbach, Honkamp Krueger’s president and CEO, says, “As Honkamp Krueger continues to grow, it was natural to look toward our state capital region for a good-fit CPA firm. We found that with the Short & Company partners and team, who have a similar approach to business with their work ethic, quality services and culture. Already having a Des Moines presence with our wealth management affiliate, HK Financial Service, and human capital division, Kabel Business Services, we are excited to add the CPA and business advisory service lines to the region.”

Ron Stallman, former partner at Short & Company, and now a Honkamp Krueger partner, adds, “We are excited for the new opportunities this merger/acquisition offers to serve our clients in a greater capacity, and the team is looking forward to the future as part of the HK family of companies.”
