Covering the Carolinas • Serving the Construction Industry
Smith, Kesler & Company is a full service certified public accounting firm with over 40 years of experience. Our growth has been the result of our total commitment to client service. We know that our success only follows in the footsteps of our clients' success. Our growth and success is accomplished by providing comprehensive financial and general business services encompassing not only the fields of auditing, accounting and taxation, but also management consulting. Our intent is to understand not only our clients' businesses, but also their business goals and their long-term objectives for their families. This holistic approach helps us to avoid short-term planning, which is counterproductive for long-term goals.
The firm's employees have maintained a reputation for excellence in the profession. We take our reputation very seriously, for unless our name is synonymous with integrity, competence, and independence, the firm will have no future in a profession whose very reason for existence derives from these qualities.
To ensure that our standards are maintained on a high level, our firm has joined the Private Companies Practice Section of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. By joining this section, we have agreed to be reviewed by our peers in public accounting every three years.
As a result of our commitment to the construction industry, Smith, Kesler & Company joined The Construction Industry CPAs/Consultants Association (CICPAC), a nationwide network of accomplished CPA firms specifically selected for their experience in and commitment to serving the construction industry.
In 2004, The Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) created a new organization, the Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (ICCIFP). As an indication of our support for the CFMA and the construction industry, we are committed to having all of our principals and managers take the ICCIFP's examination. To date, all partners have taken and passed the exam.
