And then we were One

It’s official. We are MHCS. For 75 years, we’ve been leading the way as McGowen, Hurst, Clark, Smith. Now, one name will stand for one firm.

When we brought our team together and looked ahead to the next 75 years, we decided to do for ourselves what we do for our clients: Refine a vision for the future that will deliver real value in the long run. Simply put, we had to set our sights on a shared destination, then strategized the precise steps necessary to get there.

Today, we are proud to take the first steps into that tomorrow, but we don’t need to keep talking about our plan. Let’s get to work on yours.

Down the street since 1946

With one office in West Des Moines and a second in Winterset, MHCS now spans the metro where we got our start in the 1940s. After all those years dedicated to building relationships with clients in Central Iowa, our firm already understands the ins and outs of the business landscape, so we can focus on what you want to accomplish here.

To identify meaningful insights across such a wide range of market industries, we put together teams on a client-by-client or project-by-project basis. It’s a personalized approach to your finances that delivers more and more value — from Q4 to year four.
