  • Brown Smith Wallace is more than just our accounting firm – they have been a trusted business partner for more than 10 years. They have guided us through many changes and significant growth. When we were first purchased by a private equity investor, we needed a firm that could ask the right questions to help guide us through the transition. Brown Smith Wallace earned our respect with that transition and continue to make us think about and consider different aspects of our business decisions; we have good, challenging discussions that ultimately make our business stronger. We have worked with Brown Smith Wallace through 10 bolt-on acquisitions. The firm’s deep manufacturing industry knowledge and buy and sell-side experience makes them an invaluable partner. They also helped us through recapitalization with our second private equity owner and they continue to be our trusted advisor today.

  • I have worked with Brown Smith Wallace for a few years on some of our project audits. They are very client-centered and responsive to all our requests. They work hard to get to a sensible, reasonable technical answer before moving on to the next item. With that approach, they help us get reports out efficiently and on time. They also do a good job of auditing the business as a whole and not just the financial statements. In our meetings, they always seem to bring up a new idea about the business or have some new perspective about a tax issue or an IT issue.
