Kenneth H. Rick, CPAPartner
Kenneth Rick’s professional commitment goes beyond his expertise in wealth management and tax planning. He gets so immersed in his clients’ accounts, they sometimes forget he’s their CPA and not a member of their management team. Often literally working side by side with his clients, Ken’s involvement comes in many forms. Launching emerging businesses. Transitioning to new leadership. Integrating accounting software. Just to name a few.
For Ken, building businesses starts with building relationships. He listens intently. He asks probing questions. He goes the extra mile in understanding the challenges and opportunities unique to each account. From this deep insight, Ken offers customized advice for growing income, sustaining success, and remaining compliant in today’s oft-changing, complicated tax landscape.
After 35 years in accounting, Ken remains on the cutting-edge of the industry. He frequently delivers seminars on topics ranging from federal taxation to QuickBooks application. In addition, an article by Ken on the latest tax law recently appeared in Long Island Business News.
