We see the bare-minimum service that today’s business owners are receiving from their CPAs and work hard to do more. Starting with transparent and complete communication, we design budgets, plans, strategies and advice that elevate and motivate them to achieve at the highest level. This is what trusted advisors do.

MWA clients have all hired accountants and advisors before. They know when they aren’t getting the strategic thought and service they want, and when core company functions aren’t running properly. Our initial work with clients is frequently focusing on getting their accounting correct – doing historical clean up, tax preparation and advice, getting clients ready to sell. A critical difference between MWA and other accounting/advisory firms is that we want our clients to have businesses that are “bankable” or “sellable” at any time.  And we know exactly what to do to get them there.

Clients ask us about their staffing and financial infrastructure, pricing and fee arrangements, customer relationships, bookkeeping, contracts and more. MWA takes a holistic approach to addressing their issues – we can’t answer their questions and interpret their numbers without understanding the professional and personal financial backdrop. We look at all the historical data and white-board their options, then create a roadmap for their next steps.

Traditional CPAs are reactive, viewing their clients in the rearview mirror. Because we look beyond the horizon, we help clients see the strategic possibilities of what’s ahead. Extraordinary communication is at the center of our client relationships – it is the fundamental difference in our business model over our competitors.

We know what our clients need when they are:

  • Buying or selling a business
  • Seeking a loan or greater insurance coverage
  • Doing generation and succession planning
  • Trying to find the right key employees
  • Managing tax liabilities
  • Keeping financial trains running on time
  • Losing customers
  • Growing faster than planned
  • Facing tax law and other regulatory changes
  • Hoping to minimize taxes
  • Getting their arms around rising payroll taxes and staffing costs
  • Divesting assets 
  • Expanding into new markets and regions

Clients can lean on me – on any MWA team member – and know they are getting advice tailored specifically for their industry, size of business, geographic reach and other unique circumstances. Our vision for your company will elevate you beyond where you are today.
