About Us


Daryl G. Krause, the Manager and CEO of DG Krause LLC (DGK), has been involved in performing employee benefit plan audits since 1982.

Daryl graduated summa cum laude from the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh with a bachelor's degree in business administration in January of 1982. Upon graduation, he joined the audit staff of Ernst & Whinney (a predecessor firm to Ernst & Young LLP). He became a certified public accountant (CPA) on January 18, 1985. He has been a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) since May 31, 1989. While Daryl had many roles and responsibilities during his 23-plus years with Ernst & Young LLP, including 5 years in their National office, he honed his skills in the employee benefit plan arena while serving as E&Y's Area Director of Employee Benefit Plan Services for their Ohio Valley Area from August of 1996 through June 30, 2004. In that capacity he served as either a sign-off partner, independent reviewer, or technical advisor on hundreds of employee benefit plan audits each year. Daryl has been a frequent attendee of the AICPA's National Conference on Employee Benefit Plans since 1997 and was a speaker at the 2017 Conference.

Daryl is a frequent discussion leader for the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA) and various states' CPA Society-sponsored employee benefit plan-related professional development training programs. He has served as a content matter expert for the 2016 EBP Best Practices in Presentation & Disclosure.

Daryl is actively involved and has sign-off responsibility for each of DG Krause LLC's engagements.

At DG Krause LLC, we believe that by having a professional with more experience and expertise directly involved throughout the audit process, our clients will appreciate the difference. Fall is the time of year to be enjoying the fall colors, not worrying about whether your employee benefit plan audits are ever going to get done. DGK provides a coordinated disciplined approach to performing employee benefit plan audits and avoiding unnecessary delays and frustrations in the process.
