UHY Advisors and UHY LLP (“UHY”) is expanding the firm’s presence in Kansas City by joining with accounting firm House Park Dobratz & Wiebler, P.C. (HPDW). The combination of firms, effective November 12, 2021, adds 17 professionals to UHY’s existing Kansas City practice.
UHY is the 31st largest accounting firm in the U.S. with 21 offices and more than 1,000 team members. UHY entered the Kansas City market in 2018 and is the 16th largest accounting firm in Kansas City .
Steven Wiebler, a shareholder of HPDW says the combination was motivated by their need to access additional professional personnel and larger firm resources to accommodate the firm’s growth. “Over the past 31 years, we have attracted excellent, committed professionals, and invested in their training, development, and growth. As a result of those efforts, we have experienced tremendous growth in the practice,” Wiebler says.
Wiebler, along with Shareholders Stanley House, Michael Dobratz, and William Lacy will join UHY along with all of their professional and administrative team members. The new UHY team members will continue to operate from their existing offices located on the Plaza at 605 West 47th Street.
“We are pleased to welcome the HPDW team to UHY through this expansion as their team already possesses the UHY qualities of deep accounting experience and personalized relationships with clients,” says Jerry Townsend, Midwest Regional Managing Partner for UHY. “This continues our growth strategy in the Midwest by adding quality firms and partners to our region while expanding our footprint.”
