Wisconsin-based Schenck is one of the 55 largest CPA firms in the U.S. by total revenues. Schenck 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, hospitality and retail, government, nonprofit agencies, health care, manufacturing and distribution, dealerships, agriculture and food processing, and real estate and construction.
Schenck began in 1930 as a sole proprietorship run by Willard Schenck. In 1964, Willard Schenck agreed to form a partnership with fellow CPAs Vincent Derscheid, Quentin Kuenzli, and Don 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 2015, the Manitowoc-based firm of Kroening, Stangel, Swetlik & Zinkel LLP merged into Schenck.
Today, Schenck is an independent member of The Leading Edge Alliance, a worldwide network of approximately 220 accounting and consulting firms in more than 100 countries. Schenck employs more than 600 people, including nearly 65 partners. The firm is led by its president, Daniel Young, who succeeded Greg Barber in January 2018. Previously, Young was the managing shareholder of Schenck’s Green Bay office.
