CCK was founded in 1997 by three young partners motivated to build a new type of CPA firm. John Curzon, Terry Cumbey, and Eric Kunkel took a big risk, leaving successful existing positions to form a new firm - one founded on the principle of "service." The three established CCK, and in 2002, became members of the nationally recognized McGladrey Alliance of exceptional accountancy practices.
Over the years, CCK has continued to grow in staff, as well as in depth of experience and service offerings. Today, the CCK team is comprised of nearly 90 individuals who work together to provide strategic planning solutions to new and repeat entrepreneurs to grow and add value to their businesses.
While we're proud of our heritage, we at CCK are also excited about the future and look forward to many more years of helping our clients succeed and accomplish their business goals for the future.
