    The reason we do what we do For our amazing clients

    Our people are the nucleous

    MAIN-People

    Our people are the nucleus

    We don’t think of them as employees. They’re innovators. They’re our family.

    Inside our ranks you’ll find 39 tax and attest experts, 20 Certified Public Accountants, one in-house tax attorney, one Certified Valuation Analyst, a team of wealth planners, bookkeepers, M&A experts, and more.  Whatever the financial needs of your business, the BGW team can solve them.

    What’s more, each and every one of our leadership team members has either started, run, sold, or turned around a business. We understand life in the trenches of business ownership because we’ve been there. That gives us a very different perspective and approach than traditional accounting firms. We just think differently.
