About Schenck SC

THE SCOOP

Up in Wisconsin

Wisconsin-based Schenck is the 49th-largest CPA firm in the U.S. by revenue, according to Accounting Today's 2015 rankings. Schenck, which booked more than $70 million in revenues in its latest fiscal year, provides a wide variety of services, from accounting and M&A advisory to business valuations and litigation support. Industry focus groups include trucking and logistics, retail, financial institutions, government, nonprofit agencies, health care, manufacturing, agriculture and dairy, and real estate and construction. Schenck, formerly known as Schenck Business Solutions, began in 1930 as a sole proprietorship run by Willard Schenck. In 1964, Schenck agreed to form a partnership with fellow CPAs Vincent Derscheid, Quentin Kuenzli, and Dan Sturtevant. In 1972, the firm was renamed Schenck, Derscheid, Kuenzli, Sturtevant & Johnson. Schenck expanded during the next few decades, mostly through strategic mergers and acquisitions with fellow Wisconsin firms. In late 2007, Schenck bought Clifton Gunderson's Green Bay practice, and in 2009, the firm shortened its moniker from Schenck Business Solutions to the simpler Schenck. In 2013, the firm acquired a majority of the practice of Bonfield & Company S.C., a Milwaukee-based CPA firm. Today, Schenck is an independent member of AGN International, a worldwide network of approximately 200 accounting and consulting firms in about 90 countries. Schenck employs more than 500 people, including 62 partners.
