About Our Team

Shull & Co., PC was founded by Dennis and Doug Shull in Indianola, IA, in the 1970s. Our team of nine professionals includes six certified public accountants and support staff, with offices in Indianola and Osceola, Iowa. As members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Iowa Society of Certified Public Accountants (ISCPA), our central and southern Iowa based accountants adhere to yearly continuing education guidelines for licensing, and they follow the AICPA’s Code of Professional Conduct. We voluntarily participate in the AIPCA Peer Review Program of our accounting practices to ensure we are at the highest level of professional standards.

Dennis Shull, formerly the President of Shull & Co., has begun a several year succession plan by adding key players Arlen Schrum, Bruce McClaflin and Deb Elgin to the partnership and changing the name of the firm to Shull, Schrum, McClaflin & Co., Inc. Dennis, with the new title of Consultant and Tax Professional, has been a leader in a number of business and civic organizations, serving as president and board member for the Indianola Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Indianola Industrial Development Board, past president for the National Balloon Championships, Inc., president and board member for the Indianola Lions Club, and chairperson for the Iowa Association of Business and Industry Small Business Division.

Arlen Schrum is a Partner and continues his responsibilities as a Senior Tax Accountant. He is a past director of the Indianola Development Board, past president and board member of the Indianola Chamber of Commerce, and past president of the Rotary Club.

In addition to becoming partners, Bruce McClaflin continues his responsibilities as a Senior Tax Accountant and managing the Osceola office, and Deb Elgin remains our Office Manager in Indianola.
