Forvis was created by the merger of BKD and Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP. BKD was founded in 1923 in Joplin and Kansas City, MO by three accountants – William Baird, Wade Kurtz and Claire Dobson — who had $1,700 in the bank at the time. The third office opened in Springfield, MO in 1948 and has been located downtown since then.
