LeRoy Vogel founded the firm in July, 1974 when he moved his young family back to his and his wife's home town of Bowling Green, Missouri. At that time LeRoy identified a need for professional accounting and tax services in the rural agricultural community, so he acquired a small accounting and tax practice, and hung out his shingle. Since that time the firm has and continues to steadily grow one client at a time. LeRoy's daughter, Lisa Scherder, joined the firm in the summer of 1990 when she and her husband likewise moved their young family back home. Most recently, Craig Bowen, joined the firm in the fall of 2004 when he and his wife also moved their young family back home. On January 1, 2010 Craig purchased the firm from LeRoy, LeRoy continues to work at the firm to service his clients tax and accounting needs.
