Working together and finding solutions for our clients and the communities we all serve.


ELO CPAs & Advisors was founded in Mitchell, South Dakota 40 years ago. Today, the firm has offices in nine eastern South Dakota communities serving businesses and individuals throughout the United States. 

A Message from our CEO

On behalf of the partners and the leadership of ELO CPAs & Advisors, I want to thank you for your trust in our firm and your business over the last 40 years. It has been my privilege to serve as the CEO for the past two years and have appreciated the responsibility and trust involved in shaping and leading this firm through one of the most difficult times in our lives and preparing it for the future.  During these last couple years, our country, our clients, our people and our firm have had to learn how to operate in a whole new world, and to keep up with the ever-changing world, we have worked hard and responsibly to adapt to those changes.


We continue to adjust our leadership structure to reflect these changing times. We have formed internal leadership teams that include members from all offices, all practices and all levels of experience. To be responsive to our people, our clients and to our communities, we have developed a collaborative and nimble organization where we gain insight and knowledge from all perspectives. To continue growing and developing the highest level of quality and excellence, it was important to allow our people the opportunity to gain intentional experience during their professional journey, not just at various stops along the way.


While we love our clients and enjoy serving them every day, it is our team and our values that will lead us and our clients into the future. In recent months, we have added some of both, as we continue to find ways to not only grow organically, but also through acquisition. By the end of 2022, we will complete the latest of our acquisitions and become a firm of nearly 100 professionals serving nine cities across eastern South Dakota. We will also continue to operate without any real designated headquarters, as we have important team members in all our offices across this great state.


With our growth in clients and staff, we will not forget the need to continue to evolve our service offerings to meet the expectations of those we serve. We are a firm with an extensive tool box of knowledge and resources from both sides of the table, our professional accountancy and industry leaders are ready to serve you in the areas of tax (individual, partnerships, corporations, trusts, estates, gift), agri-business tax and advisory services, audit & attestation (including being a peer review firm), client accounting and advisory services (CAAS), business consulting services (transactional services, operational turnarounds, business restructuring, human resources, marketing, IT), retirement planning, wealth management and more.


Our forward-thinking firm is uniquely positioned to help our clients through just about any business or financial situation they face day-to-day. We continue to find success when we come together as an unstoppable team of advisors and clients as one. Together we can help solve the challenges ahead of us for years to come. Thank you again for your business and we look forward to serving you in 2022!

With Much Respect & Appreciation,  

Eric Christensen
