Dark Horse CPAs appoints new principal

Dark Horse CPAs has announced the promotion of Erik Hegstad to principal in the firm.

Hegstad earned a degree in accounting from the University of Northern Colorado in 2009 and obtained his CPA license in 2012.

During a ten-year stint in public accounting with small and mid-sized, regional CPA firms, he provided accounting and tax support to a wide range of individuals and businesses.

He said: “I spent a decade grinding my way through the age-old public accounting model hoping to make partner one day. Feeling unfulfilled and unhappy, I started to question whether I even wanted to make partner at the firms I worked at.

“When I found Dark Horse and heard about their model and approach, I instantly knew this was where I needed to be. Being able to build a book of business while having the autonomy to design a lifestyle that works for my family is a game changer.”

Chase Birky, CEO and co-founder of Dark Horse CPAs, added: “Erik has a very easy going way about him that makes clients feel comforted even when they’re stressed out about their finances or taxes.

“Beyond being their pseudo-therapist, he gets the job done, delivering the kind of results that validate and reinforce the peace of mind they felt from the beginning of the relationship.”
