MHC&S employs a team of outstanding professionals including CPA’s, accountants, and consultants. Our mix of professional staff tends to have a higher percentage of partners, managers and other senior personnel than many other firms. This mix allows us to assign experienced personnel to our engagements, with the added benefit of reduced turnover. We choose to focus locally because we take great pride in serving the people in our community. Our dedication to service not only fosters professional excellence, but also encourages personal growth in each team member.
With offices in West Des Moines and Winterset, McGowen, Hurst, Clark & Smith, P.C. is one of the oldest and largest local firms in Central Iowa. Founded in 1946, we celebrate over 65 years of providing our clients with accounting, auditing and business consulting expertise. Over the years, our firm has grown from 3 to 65 employees, making us large enough to provide our clients with a broad base of experience and resources, yet small enough to offer very personalized service --which sets us apart from other CPA firms.
