five-to-one staff-to-leadership ratio
The CPAs at SLD go beyond standard accounting services. They work with you to understand your individual situation and evaluate your options, challenges and opportunities. By providing you with current, relevant, and multi-faceted advice, we empower you to make solid financial decisions. With our five-to-one staff-to-leadership ratio, our CPA firm remains small enough to deliver personalized, highly responsive service. However, as members of DFK International, we also have access to the broader service areas and resources of a larger firm, allowing us to scale our services to meet your needs as your business grows.
We have extensive expertise in a range of industries, including real estate, manufacturing, construction, logistics, distribution, wholesale, food and beverage, and professional services. Many of our CPAs have diverse industry knowledge and decades of experience. Principal Ronald “Ron” Simonian, for example, has been with SLD for over 30 years and is an expert in strategic business and tax consulting, individual tax planning, merger and acquisition consulting, and accounting and auditing. Beyond working with nonprofits, he has extensive experience providing services to companies in the wholesale and distribution, engineering and architectural, real estate and construction, and food service industries.
