KEB Celebrates 90 Years of Service

October 1, 2021 – KEB, a leading Midwestern accounting, consulting and advisory firm in Illinois, Missouri and Wisconsin, is proudly celebrating its 90th anniversary. Over the next year, the firm will "Celebrate Community,” both within the KEB Family and within the broader communities it serves.   

KEB was founded in 1931 with offices in Springfield, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri. KEB has since grown to 9 office locations across the Midwest.  

What has remained consistent is one of KEB’s core values: Give Generously. The firm remains committed to making communities better by sharing time and resources and putting people first. KEB strives to care about each other, clients, and organizations with which they interact daily.  

KEB supports numerous non-for-profit organizations across the Midwest. Employees in all offices are encouraged to follow their passion and volunteer where they feel they can make a measurable difference. For the 90-year celebration, KEB firmwide plans a series of events to give back, encouraging volunteerism, leadership and partnership. 

Through the next year and beyond, KEB will work towards making a measurable difference in the communities where KEB families live and work.  

“We are proud of KEB’s history of giving back,” said Marc Carter, CPA and Managing Partner of KEB. “As a firm, we care about the places where we live and work. We share time and resources to make a difference. Our 90th anniversary is an opportunity to support the businesses and nonprofits that do such good work in our communities.” 

KEB’s accountants and management consultants provide audit, accounting, and tax services as well as management consulting, and employee benefit plan services to a variety of clients with a special focus on construction, banking and financial services, not-for-profit, religious organizations, insurance, privately held and family-owned businesses, and high net worth individuals. KEB’s Wealth Management division serves as a registered investment advisor to individuals, businesses, trusts, partnerships, not-for-profit organizations, and retirement plans. KEB has office locations in Illinois (Springfield, Litchfield, Columbia, Harrisburg, O’Fallon, and Marion), Missouri (St. Louis and Cape Girardeau), and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Nine decades of excellence.

In 1931, KEB opened its first accounting offices in Springfield, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri. Through the years, KEB has grown in the number of office locations, the range of services we provide to our clients, and in the talented team members who make this a great place to work.
