We are one of this region’s oldest and most respected accounting firms. We attribute our success to understanding our clients and their needs while providing timely and expert work. Our staff are highly trained and well-qualified. We hire the most talented person for a given job and are committed to developing our staff so they can perform at the highest level possible. Our average for continuing education exceeds the certification requirement of 40 hours. We also encourage the pursuit of advanced degrees as part of our overall development program.
Our development program also focuses on the full client relationship. We encourage staff to volunteer their time to nonprofit boards and committees in the business community. Not only does this fill a community need, but it rounds out each accountant’s knowledge and understanding of organizational needs. We ensure that employees understand what is expected of them and stay abreast of emerging developments that affect them.
