About Our Firm

Prior to 1984, this office was a satellite office of Potter & Company, a regional accounting firm based in Lexington, Kentucky. The Mt. Sterling office opened in the 1960’s and continued in business there until its conversion into Faulkner & King in 1984. Today the firm, known as Faulkner, King and Wenz, PSC has a professional staff of 12 degreed accountants, including eight CPAs.
