From Humble Beginnings...

When Bruce Kenway, Ray Mack, Barry Slusarchuk, and Cal Stewart first pooled together their resources, time, and energy in 1986, they did so with three main goals in mind. First, they wanted to be more than just the “typical accounting firm” by being hands-on, having a depth of tax expertise, and truly providing an individual experience for each of their valued clients. Second, they set out to become trusted advisors for entrepreneurs – being business owners themselves and passing on decades of knowledge and experience to new and existing entrepreneurs to be able to succeed in the unique Calgary marketplace. Finally, they instilled a culture of strong character, high ethics, personal growth, and… having a bit of fun (more often than not!)… which still exists in the firm to this day.

To Mid-Market Firm of Choice…

Decades later, KMSS is now a full-service professional accounting and advisory firm with 17 partners and around 75 team members. But, although our size has increased, our goals and the pillars on which we have grown remain the same.

KMSS has always maintained a local focus. We have two office locations, one in downtown Calgary, and another in Canmore. By understanding the unique economic environment in Alberta, we are able to assist our clients as they ride out the highs and lows of the province’s resource driven economy.

Over the years, KMSS has ensured diversity in both our client base and our partner and team’s skill sets. We are not significantly concentrated in one industry, but instead pride ourselves on developing expertise in a breadth of areas. This has allowed KMSS to become Calgary’s largest independent mid-sized accounting firm.

With Connections to the World...

KMSS is a member of DFK Canada and DFK International, a global network of mid-sized accounting firms which enables us to tap into an immense network of international expertise when needed.

We recognize that many Alberta companies are flexing their global muscle and look to expand beyond Canada’s borders. The ability to collaborate with these Canadian and international partners allows us to provide an unparalleled client experience.

Maintaining our Entrepreneurial Roots.

Our passion for seeing entrepreneurs succeed has never wavered. Our partners and team members will always ask “What would I do” when providing business advice for our clients. We understand that in order to be successful in today’s ultra-competitive business environment, you must do something that stands out from the rest of the pack. Our commitment to providing the highest quality work, from both a technical and client service standpoint, remains to this day.

In combination with our high ethical work approach, we will continue to help entrepreneurs realize their potential – we truly love to be a partner in your success.
