“BKD has been my CPA firm since I first started my business in 1989. As we have grown to the fifth largest union fire sprinkler contractor in the United States, with four offices in the Midwest, I have relied on BKD to advise me on how best to manage my balance sheet and to provide guidance on how to continue being profitable.
In addition, BKD continues to provide me with solid team members. In particular, my current BKD partner is someone I would consider a mentor to me in the construction field. Certainly, I appreciate his guidance, but I also find him to be very accessible and highly responsive.
Over the years, I have surrounded myself with a strong team of advisors, including my bank, my bonding company, my insurance company and, of course, BKD as my CPA firm. There is much synergy between these four firms as they each trust the other because of the credibility and reputation they have built in their individual marketplaces.
I honestly believe Dalmatian Fire would not have been as successful without BKD and the strong, construction industry focused partners and managers who are part of our team.”
