Canfield, Ohio – HBK CPAs & Consultants (HBK) has promoted two former Senior Managers to the role of Principal: Darby L. Beaverson, CPA of its Naples, Florida office, and Richard P. Mishock, CPA from its office in Stuart, Florida.

HBK CEO and Managing Principal Christopher Allegretti, CPA, made the announcement internally prior to the public notification.

Beaverson has been with the firm since 2014, specializing in a variety of accounting, tax, and assurance services. Much of her work has been done in the construction industry and for nonprofit organizations. She also serves many other types of small businesses, their owners and families. Darby holds a Master’s in Accounting from the University of Wyoming, and is a member of the American and Florida Institutes of Certified Public Accountants and serves as treasurer of the Cancer Alliance of Naples.

“Darby has established herself in our office as a leader and a really effective problem solver,” noted Barry Holes, Principal-in-Charge of our Southwest Florida region. “Her teammates regard her as a good listener, level-headed and very objective in her thinking. People count on her for smart, sensible decisions.”

Rich began his public accounting career with HBK in our Salem office upon graduation from Slippery Rock University in 1995. He transferred to Florida in 1998 and is licensed in both Florida and Pennsylvania. He has extensive experience in the areas of financial reporting, taxation, business consulting, and audit and assurance. He provides accounting, tax and consulting services to individuals as well as a wide range of industries, including construction, real estate, manufacturing, wholesale distribution, professional firms and non-profit organizations. In addition to his membership in the American, Florida and Pennsylvania Institutes of Certified Public Accountants, he devotes time to several community organizations, including the Treasure Coast Builders Association (TCBA), Treasure Coast Manufacturers Association (TCMA), and as treasurer to the Port St. Lucie Police Foundation. He has also served as past chairman and treasurer of the YMCA of the Treasure Coast, and past treasurer of SafeSpace.

“Rich is a well-rounded professional who works hard, is dependable and loyal, and well-respected by clients,” said Greg Nuttall, Principal-in-Charge of our Stuart office. “He has a strong concentration in work related to the construction industry and non-profit organizations, and he’s very active in HBK’s IT Advisory Committee. He’s also quite involved in the Treasure Coast business community and has developed key relationships therein. He’ll play a key role in transitioning business in the coming years.” said Nuttall.
