Since joining the Firm, Phil has expanded his knowledge beyond audit and accounting and is responsible for tax planning and compliance for a number of individuals and entities in a variety of industries. Having the experience, ability and the complete resources of the Firm to provide clients with advice and guidance has allowed Phil to tackle the challenges and opportunities of many of our major clients.

“Prior to joining BKC, I had the opportunity to work with publicly traded companies and work for a start-up. Both experiences were tremendous and helped me to appreciate the opportunities and challenges of the business owner. But it wasn’t until I was able to tap into the incredible talent pool of hard-working and dedicated individuals here at the Firm, that I was able to realize what a complete service provider should be. We continue to add quality professionals whenever they become available and it has been the number one reason for our success over the years.”
