OUR HISTORY AND FOUNDERS
John May founded our MCK in 1970 in Decatur, Illinois. Within a few years, Alan King joined in and established our Monticello, Illinois office. They were soon thereafter joined by Ty Cocagne. The firm then became May, Cocagne & King, P.C. Not long after that, Phil Bauer became a partner as did Helga Towler years later.
In 2005, the firm of Chamblin, Moss & Moore LLP was merged in with Bill Moss becoming a new MCK partner. Then, in 2015, David Brown became an MCK partner after his Monticello practice was acquired. In November 2018, the firm of Sulaski & Webb CPA’s in Bloomington, Illinois was acquired. The firm was founded in 1982 as William D. Sulaski, CPA. In January 1984, the partnership of Sulaski & Webb, CPAs was formed with the admission of Mary Ann Webb. Bill Sulaski retired in 2011 and Mary Ann Webb in 2020. The Bloomington office is located in the historic Illinois House.
Sadly, John May passed away after a courageous battle with brain cancer in January 2005. Since that time, we have seen well-deserved retirements for Ty Cocagne, Phil Bauer, Alan King, Bill Moss, Helga Towler and Andy Thomas. They are all truly missed, but they left behind a strong, well-structured firm and culture that has continued to help MCK grow into the forty-plus person, three-location firm it is today.
