Specialized Accounting Services prides itself on being an extension of your business and the community.

The firm, based in Pleasant Prairie, specializes in payroll, accounting and tax services for clients, both locally and across the country.

“What we’ve found is that a lot of these business owners need the help,” said Jamie Hogan, president of the firm. “There’s a lot more reporting requirements, and the need for assistance with those requirements exists, and is what has driven our growth to date.”

Specialized Accounting Services works with clients in nearly all 50 states from its Pleasant Prairie location. Clients range in size from $500,000 companies to mid-size $50 million businesses, Hogan said.

“Most are family-run, salt of the earth type people. We relate really well,” he said.

Hogan founded the firm in 2008.

Since 2012, Specialized Accounting has seen revenue growth of more than 200 percent, and recently acquired an accounting firm in Columbus, Ohio.

“The acquisition was a good fit for us; we started the process in January and finalized everything in March,” Hogan said.

The rest of the company’s growth has been organic and through word of mouth.

Today, Specialized Accounting employs more than 60 people, and last October, relocated to a brand new 15,000-square-foot facility in Lakeview Corporate Park.

“We’ve been growing very rapidly,” Hogan said. “The new facility has allowed us the ability to grow without the threat of running out of space.”

Previously, the firm was located in multiple offices and cordoned off by walls. The new location gives Specialized Accounting an entire floor to grow into, located directly off the highway, he said.

Hogan and SAS remain committed to Kenosha County, where the company was first founded.

“We really enjoy this area,” Hogan said. “There’s great people here, and great talent to draw from.”

The firm regularly works with area colleges and universities in its recruiting efforts, as well.

SAS is involved in numerous outreach programs and generously contributes to several local organizations, including The Shalom Center, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, and the Walkin’ In My Shoes Inc. outreach program.

Hogan and his colleagues are also avid youth baseball and softball coaches and parents.

Hogan expects similar growth moving forward.

“Growth means opportunities,” he said. “We couldn’t do this without the employees and the staff that we have here. We have a great group of people that do great work serving our clients. Most of our growth has been through word of mouth and that’s really because of our team and the work they are doing to promote our business.”
