About BerganKDV

BerganKDV was formed when three successful firms merged – Bergan Paulsen, Networking Solutions and KDV. Combined, our roots trace all the way back to the 1940s.

From our humble beginnings as trusted business advisory firms, we have expanded and adapted to now offer business planning and consulting, tax, audit and accounting, technology and wealth management services throughout the Midwest.


Better Together

When like-minded business advisory firms in the Midwest came together to form BerganKDV, our mission was simple – create a business, technology and financial advisory firm where relationships are the foundation for everything we do.

Our People

Our people are at the heart of BerganKDV. We may be biased, but we think they are pretty great. They are passionate professionals who, among other things, are: community stewards, football fans, and family-focused. In other words, they’re real. This translates into genuine relationships with our clients, focused on helping them meet their personal and professional goals.
