Our Springfield office dates back to the early 1960’s when Herb Cohen, CPA opened up his accounting practice as a sole practitioner and later formed Springfield’s largest accounting practice known as Cohen and Kirkpatrick, CPA’s. In 1983, Cohen started up his second CPA Firm, forming the professional service corporation now known as SWR.
Ken Schultz, CPA, CVA joined the Firm in 1990, allowing Cohen to retire, and with Dave Covey as his partner, practiced as Cohen, Covey and Schultz, P.C., offering attestation, tax, and management consulting services to the small-to-medium sized business clients in the greater Springfield Area. In 1992, Connie Rapp, CPA joined the Firm and was promoted to shareholder status in 1998. Bill Wood, CPA joined SWR in 2003, and became a shareholder in 2010, Bill retired from the firm in June 2019. Nicholas Schultz, CPA joined the Firm in 2012 and was promoted to shareholder status in June 2019, forming today’s present ownership of SWR.
In 2000, SWR purchased the West Plains CPA practice of Egan & Mangold, P.C. The West Plains client base dates back to 1947, when Paul Schwegman, CPA hung his shingle as a sole practitioner.
