02 Jan KPM CPAs, PC Merges with Davis, Lynn & Moots, PC
KPM is pleased to announce our merger with local accounting firm Davis, Lynn & Moots, P.C. (DLM). This merger allows KPM and DLM professionals to continue to strengthen our position as top local service providers.
Mike Redmon, Managing Shareholder of KPM stated, “DLM’s professionals and culture are very similar to ours, and we see this as a great fit for both firms. In addition, their specialization in not-for-profit and government audits make them an attractive partner. DLM is known throughout the state for having expertise in these niches. They provide quality work, as exemplified by their past and present participation with Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants and American Institute of CPAs peer review programs.”
DLM, one of the top 10 local firms, was founded in 1983 and provides services primarily to non-profit, governmental and education entities in addition to construction contractors in Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas.
“While we are very proud of our more than thirty- year history, we recognize it would be advantageous for our team and our clients to merge with a firm of comparable quality. KPM shares our philosophy of helping clients grow, succeed, and prosper,“ said Randall Moots, Managing Partner of DLM. “This merger enables us to expand our existing industry specializations and utilize KPM’s talent and resources to increase service offerings through the use of their wealth management and technology divisions. I believe this will be of great benefit to our clients.”
The combined firm boasts a professional staff of approximately 100 personnel, so to accomodate this growth, construction of a new building at the corner of Republic Road and Fremont is currently underway. This new building will have three sprawling floors to ensure space for future growth, a sleek and modern design, and plenty of parking space for firm employees and clients. We will be launching a page to keep those in the community apprised of the building progress soon. Groundbreaking has taken place and the expected move in date is later this year in October. Until this time, however, each respective firm will continue to work from their current office locations on East Sunshine and South Avenue.
As the largest locally owned accounting firm in Springfield, and with an unwavering commitment to the clients and our community, KPM is positioned to continue providing accounting excellence for years to come. We look forward to continuing to serve our clients as the ‘new’ KPM!
