The Gathering Place

When I learned that Zinner & Co. was submitting an application for the Pillar Award for Community Service, it gave me great pleasure to take some time to share my thoughts about why their firm is qualified for this honor.

I have gotten to know many people at Zinner both personally and professionally. After using them for years to do my own taxes, I joined the staff of The Gathering Place and learned that the organization used Zinner for our annual audit. Who would have thought I would enjoy spending so much time with accountants!? The staff at Zinner is always extremely professional and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. In addition to regularly donating a significant portion of their fee for our audit, they also have regularly sponsored our annual fundraisers.

Although donating their time and money would be enough for some organizations, Zinner regularly goes "the extra mile" for The Gathering Place (and I know they do this for other organizations as well). Ever year, our organization hosts a major fundraiser, Race for the Place. This 5K run and walk is held on the first Sunday in June which is National Cancer Survivors' Day. Not only is Zinner a sponsor of the event, but they put together a team for the event and this year even printed their own shirts to wear on Race day. When I recently visited their website, I noticed that they posted photos from the Race on their blog and detailed with great pride the members of their team who won awards in our event. The personal interest that their employees take in our event is something truly special and we could not be more pleased to have Zinner & Co as our partner.

As an organization, The Gathering Place truly benefits from our association with Zinner & Co. and it is my honor to enthusiastically recommend them for this award.

Wallace Industries

Many entrepreneurs, whether starting up a business or acquiring another, often rely on a gut feeling that tells them if a particular endeavor or an additional acquisition is a smart idea. Since 1985, I’ve relied upon Zinner & Company to qualify such feelings. The most satisfying aspect of their work is the way they orchestrate things behind the scenes and the thoroughness of their work that not only puts me at the helm of a new business in a few short weeks, but the resulting cost savings with the other professionals involved in the acquisition. I have always professed that behind every successful business you will find a strong accounting firm that has an impeccable relationship with the local banking industry.”

Youth Opportunities Unlimited

Zinner has been our auditor for many years: the relationship has been very rewarding.

First, they are thorough, do a great job, and I know I can always call them for advice on whether something is right or not. Second, because of Sarbannes Oxley and more scrutiny, we’ve needed even more support and advice about financial matters. Zinner has very professionally and patiently helped us to become more business like and professional in our financial management – we feel like we’re a little ahead of the curve in accountability and fiscal prudence. Last, but not least, the company also supports Y.O.U. with volunteer support and financial support as they can because they believe in our mission and the work that we’re doing. We deeply appreciate how hard they work at our relationship.

Pepco

"I would like to take this time to thank you for all the support you have provided over the last 30+ years of our relationship. You have gone well above the traditional role of an accountant by continuing to support us as a confidant, consultant and friend. Many professional individuals take on considerable amounts of responsibility in their daily task-oriented projects, but they lose sight of the personal attention that is critical to any successful business relationship. You have provided all the necessary support as directed by your job functions while also identifying the key components of our goals. Because you have taken the time to understand our company and actually believe in our plight, you have earned a distinguished role in our difficult decision making processes.

I also want to thank you specifically for your support during the first three years of my Presidency here at PEPCO. You played an important role in our transition to second generation and provided significant amounts of useful information that helped facilitate this transition. You stood by my side during our first successful M&A attempt, you have helped enhance my Financial Management skills, and you have provided strategic insights to our structured growth plan."

Franchise Selection Specialists, Inc.

"I believe I have a winning concept to help grow my existing business. How do you translate an idea that comes to you in the shower into a concrete action plan? The business plan helped to organize my thoughts and know what needed to be done. I gave consideration to factors that I would not have otherwise by going through this process. Trying to pull together all the information seemed overwhelming. Zinner & Co. shared their expertise to develop a financial model that represented my unique idea. I now have a handle on pricing, additional costs, risk and reward."

RAF Automation

We are very pleased with the personal attention we receive from Zinner. Previously, we worked with one of the world’s largest firms and have found that Zinner provides more ideas, quicker service and more personalized reporting (vs. squeezing us into a template), all at a lower cost. I have recommended their service to my “business owner” friends.
