The BerganKDV board of directors is pleased to announce that Dave Hinnenkamp, CPA, has been selected to remain the firm’s chief executive officer (CEO), effective July 1, 2021, and serve an additional three-year term. Hinnenkamp has served as the firm’s CEO since July 1, 2018.
Throughout his term as CEO, Hinnenkamp has been instrumental in leading BerganKDV through a restructure to eliminate traditional silos often found in professional service firms and establish its “One-Firm” initiative, driving collaborative efforts amongst all solution groups to ensure teams were aligned in strategy and goals. He is an advocate of the firm’s core values, inclusive culture, and recognizing team members for the contributions they make to the firm each day.
During the events of last year brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic, Hinnenkamp’s leadership was essential in mobilizing to a remote workforce and kept employee safety and job security at the forefront, which led to increased productivity and collaboration and resulted in our firm hitting record financial results. He is future-driven and recently shared his 2030 vision with the firm, outlining the firm’s long-term goals as BerganKDV reinvents how professional service firms deliver value to its client.
“Dave embodies the people-driven traits that make BerganKDV what it is,” said BerganKDV Shareholder and Board Chairwoman, Becky Morgan. “He is as authentic as it comes and makes everyone feel seen and heard within the firm, no matter their role. The board is confident in Dave’s leadership and vision for BerganKDV. We fully support his initiatives to drive our firm into a future of sustained growth and opportunity.”
Hinnenkamp is an active member of the American Institute of CPAs and the Minnesota Society of CPAs. He is also an avid supporter of Crescent Cove, an organization offering hospice, respite, and palliative care to children and young adults with shortened life expectancies.
