Our History

It started with a couple of creative guys, a couple of red beers and a big idea….
“8 am, September 30th, 1991, Joe Henkin and I met in his makeshift office above Zandbroz Variety Store. This was our first meeting as HenkinSchultz. I felt it appropriate to toast this first-ever event by sharing a red beer.” – Kirby Schultz, President & Co-Founder

Over the years, Joe and Kirby consistently hired thinkers – smart creative talent passionate about turning ideas into something that changes people. And about seeing clients succeed. No matter what his or her job title or particular skill, everybody on the HenkinSchultz team is a problem solver. Together, the designers, writers, developers, producers and account staff listen, think and create the best solution for our customers. It isn’t until an idea is solid that they start to pull all of the pieces together to make something awesome.

Maybe Joe and Kirby always knew that when you put together a great team committed to clients good things happen, but the lessons learned over the 30 years have helped keep the company strong, and have a positive impact for our clients every day. We’ve learned that the why is more important than the how.

Talent tells you how, but experience tells you why.


Because we’ve been serving Sioux Falls and South Dakota since 1991, we know the regional market. In fact, we’ve helped to build it, working with many organizations throughout the area to develop and support their brands and their events. Our experience has helped us develop efficiencies that save our customers money and time. Our discovery process, for instance: It gets right to the heart of a marketing challenge and informs the solution.

Since 1991, we have had the pleasure of building relationships that help us get things done, and help us help our clients make beneficial connections.

And we’ve learned that every project is an opportunity to do something wonderful. According to Kirby, “We put our heart into every project, and that makes all the difference in the quality of the work we deliver.”
September 27, 2016 was another momentous day for HenkinSchultz, as HS veterans Becka Burger, Jason Jellis and Joseph Schultz officially became partners, with greater ownership and responsibilities.

Becka Burger is in charge of account services and sales development. Jason Jellis is our operations manager and large format division manager. Joseph Schultz is manager of our audio/video department. Under their tremendous leadership we’ve experienced great growth in all of these areas.

In March of 2017, co-founder Joe Henkin announced his retirement. The HS team will always be grateful for the amazing, fun workplace environment he was instrumental in creating, as well as his business acumen, quick-witted humor and emphasis on service to the community. This is a legacy we are proud to carry forward every day.

In April of 2017, HenkinSchultz announced the launch of the HS Sign Shop, an expansion of services that will enable us to specialize in the design, printing and installation of large format graphics, banners, signage, high performance vinyl, window, building & vehicle wraps and any digital printing needs.

Over 30 years after our founding, the emphasis on finding the right thinkers for our clients still animates everything we do, as we build on this incredible foundation and prepare for a bright future.
