Honkamp, P.C., a CPA and business advisory group with a location in Hiawatha, will acquire Vaassen, Pluemer CPAs, LLC, a local accounting firm in Platteville, Wis.

The acquisition will be effective Nov. 1.

“We’ve been serving clients in Wisconsin for over 20 years,” Honkamp CEO Greg Burbach said in a news release. “Partnering with another established Platteville firm was a natural step in our firm’s growth. Vaassen, Pluemer’s management and staff are innovative and client-focused and will be a great match for our culture at Honkamp.”

“Through this acquisition with Honkamp, our firm will be able to provide more depth to our clients, having over 40 different professional services and national resources to offer,” added Julie Pluemer, member at Vaassen, Pluemer. “Our team is looking forward to the future as part of the Honkamp family.”

In October, Honkamp Krueger officially changed its name to Honkamp, P.C.
