A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
I graduated from college in 1982, at the age of 23. I passed the CPA exam and was promoted to controller of a not for profit in 1985. In the time since I have worked both in public accounting, (preparing taxes and financial statements) and as a controller for businesses, in both the manufacturing and service industries. I have a diverse background.
I have spent most of my career either cleaning up reporting messes in accounting departments or setting them up as the first accountant ever hired. In that time I have prepared many financial statements and given owners financial information to help them run their businesses, creating “world class” accounting departments.
I bought my current public accounting firm in 2001 and set out to provide that same entrepreneurial experience to my clients that I did to the owners of the businesses that I worked for. I think that’s what separates me from some of my peers. I can help owners grow their companies because I understand business. My peers often have not worked in business and therefore are very good at telling owners “what happened” as they give them their financial statements or tax returns. We are all very good at looking backwards. Anybody in my profession can do that, some very well.
The more important question is “can they give owners financial information that helps them run their businesses going forward? Can they help them understand the information on the statements they give them so they can make proper business decisions? Can they show them how they compare to their competition, in the same industry? Can they show them what future growth looks like and make sure they have enough cash to get there? I can.
