Happy New Year

Jan 8, 2012

With a New Year comes reflection on the previous year and looking forward to the one to come. Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC had a very eventful 2011 and we are very much looking forward to 2012 as we have added a new office and new members to our team.

Celebrating 75 Years
We are very proud to announce that 2011 marked our firm's 75 Year Anniversary! Since 1936, Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC has remained a staple in the McPherson community and we intend to continue doing so. This monumental event inspired us to look at ways of improving ourselves. During the summer of 2011 we launched a brand new website at www.sjhl.com and performed a Firm Summit where we set goals for the coming year.

Best Accounting Firms to Work for 2011
Some more exciting news from 2011 is that SJHL won "Best Accounting Firms to Work for" for the fourth year in a row! This is a survey and award program designed by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the accounting industry. "This award is important to us because so much of it is based on how our employee's feel about working here. We truly are a family and care about each and every person. Our employees are the reason we are successful, and if they really love where they are at and what they are doing, then we are doing something right. This survey also gives us the opportunity to see where we can improve, so that we make positive progress every single year," stated Managing Partner, Kyle Hawk.

Although last year was wonderful for SJHL, we are even more excited about 2012. Due to a merger with BSE, LLC we are happy to have three new staff members, a Hutchinson office location and many new clients who are receiving their first E-Newsletter today! We welcome Steve Seltzer, CPA; Diane Lee, CPA, CSEP and Darlene Otis to the SJHL team. Steve and Diane had both been with BSE for over 36 years and Darlene for 23 years. We are all very excited about what this merger means for our staff and clients and welcome all the new faces!
