BerganKDV and Brooks Lodden, located in Des Moines, Iowa, have merged together. This partnership brings together two leading professional services firms whose primary mission is to help clients find solutions to their complex business, financial and technology challenges. As a result of the merger, which closed September 5, Brooks Lodden has adopted the BerganKDV name.
The Brooks Lodden team consists of 31 individuals which brings the current Des Moines location headcount to 61 employees. Firm-wide, BerganKDV employs 459 team members. “The synergy we are producing will benefit all involved,” said Des Moines Market Leader Adam Tillman, “I am looking forward to getting the entire team together in one office location later this fall. It is an exciting time for us and our clients will find additional opportunities to grow and succeed as a result.”
BerganKDV Des Moines staff will relocate to the Paradigm Building at 12100 Meredith Drive in Urbandale with the move slated for late November and an open house and ribbon cutting is projected for December. The BerganKDV offices will be approximately 17,000 square feet, with 28 offices, 58 workstations, two conference rooms and six huddle/meeting rooms.
Shyft Collective has helped BerganKDV with site selection and the overall fit and layout of the workspace and Pigott has been involved in the overall design and interior finishes for the office. All offices and workstations will have sit/stand desks and the employee breakroom will offer flex seating and an outdoor balcony.
“We are both broadening and deepening our service offerings,” said Tony Wagner, Brooks Lodden Shareholder, “In our conversations with Adam and others at BerganKDV, it became apparent that our organizations shared a common goal of putting clients’ needs first and building unwavering relationships with those we serve.”
