Our Lawrence office will transition to a new, independent firm, Kindred CPA, LLC, on October 1, 2019. This change is the result of strategic discussions by our firm leaders about how to best focus our resources among practice areas.
The new firm will be owned and directed by Ken Hite, CPA. Ken has been an accountant in Lawrence since 1998 and a shareholder with Mize Houser since 2011. Kevin Kressig, CPA and Abram Chrislip, CPA will also be directors of the new firm, and professionals and staff of the Lawrence office will transition to Kindred CPA as well.
“Strategically, the Lawrence market for tax and accounting services is unique when compared to our Overland Park and Topeka locations,” says James Hilbert, CPA, Managing Shareholder for Mize Houser. “Serving these clients takes a different approach and leadership to deliver services to a more traditional small business and individual income tax client base,” adds Hilbert.
“We’re grateful to all the clients we’ve served over our 67-year history of providing accounting, tax, and consulting services to the Lawrence community. Our name is meant to convey the goal to be of kindred minds to those we serve, sharing the worthy goals of our clients, co-workers and the community. Kevin, Abram and our entire team are looking forward to the new future opportunities,” said Ken Hite, CPA, of Kindred CPA, LLC. The Kindred office will remain in the same location at 211 East Eighth Street.
