|Bland Director Robert Dick, CPA, CVA says superior client service is what distinguishes Bland & Associates from other firms.|
“We strive to provide proactive service, anticipating our clients’ needs before they are even aware of their need,” he said. “Providing Bland-style, first-rate client service is always our top priority.”
Dick joined the firm as a Director in 2015. He works with closely-held businesses and not-for-profit organizations to develop business strategies and improve operations. He also prepares business valuations to help individuals understand the value of their business.
Dick says financial and operational planning and tracking are vital to the success of any business or organization.
“Controlling costs and increasing revenues or looking for new revenue streams is paramount to a successful business,” said Dick.
He has known since high school that he wanted to pursue a career in Accounting, after achieving perfect scores on his tests and discussing the field with his teacher. Dick went on to earn a BS in Accounting and Finance from Kansas State University in 1988. Throughout his career, he has worked for various firms, starting in Wichita, Kansas and, most notably, spent some time at Bland when the firm was still known as Bland, Datesman & Associates in the early 1990s. Prior to joining Bland & Associates in 2015, Dick spent 22 years as a Principal at another CPA firm in Omaha. He is a Certified Valuation Analyst as well as a Certified Public Accountant.
