Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd LLC, a firm based in McPherson, Kan., has acquired the Wichita office location of CBIZ MHM, LLC. 

The acquisition took effect Dec. 31, 2015. CBIZ MHM’s Wichita office will remain in its current location and assume SJHL’s name. As a result of the deal, Anne Downing and Debbie Coan will be joining SJHL as partners, and Debbie Sauer as a principal of SJHL.  

“We are excited about the opportunities this acquisition will create for our team and our clients,” said SJHL managing partner Chet Buchman in a statement. “Our goal is to work with clients in a different capacity; our passion lies in helping clients get from where they are, to where they want to be.”

SJHL offers accounting, tax, payroll, attest, consulting, wealth management and other services. The combined firm will include 65 people.

“We conducted an extensive search to find the right firm to join, keeping our values and commitment to client service at the top of our mind,” said Sauer, who was formerly managing director of CBIZ MHM’s Wichita office. “We are confident we found the perfect fit for our team members and equally important, our valued clients. We look forward to returning to our local roots with SJHL.”
