“We outgrew our existing accountant and were in need of a professional business partner that could support us, guide us, challenge us, and advise us through our various issues with the government in a language that we understood. We have found a business partner that understands the distribution industry, challenges us in an appropriate manner, and has earned our respect as a trusted advisor.”

“Prior to becoming the CFO of Gelest, I was a partner in a public accounting firm which provided me with a true appreciation for the profession. My Kreischer Miller team goes well beyond the traditional accounting services by providing insights into industry trends and benchmarks, assisting us with support in our personnel needs and specialized tax services, and actively engaging in communication with senior management throughout the year. Kreischer Miller’s ability to blend comprehensive services with engaging service has been a refreshing experience from a public accounting firm.”
