Strictly Business – March 2013
As a professional accounting firm in Omaha, Bland & Associates, P.C. has always focused on what it takes to create success for their clients…and that, in turn has grown Bland’s success and reputation in the Omaha market. Bland has crafted it’s service offering to go Beyond Accounting…forming relationships with Omaha’ s business owners that promote an active, business-partner role in business growth and development.
The firm’s tagline, “Beyond Accounting” is a reflection of the firm’s commitment to be a proactive resource for business owners…even when it’s not directly accounting related. This philosophy is integral to the firm’s approach, corporate culture, staff training, marketing and its client interaction.
Jeremy Vokt, Shareholder puts it this way, “As a company, we strive to put world-class client service at the top of every decision we make. We look for new opportunities to expand what we offer without sacrificing the qualities of our core accounting offering. We also instill the importance of the job we do to our entire staff, regardless of the specific role they perform. Keeping this philosophy in mind is as critical promoting it internally as it is marketing it externally.”
The result of this approach has been dynamic, double-digit growth over the past few years and recognition, both local and national. This past year Bland & Associates, P.C. has been recognized by INSIDE Public Accounting as a Best of the Best Firm, an All Start Firm and the Fastest Growing Firm, Accounting Today as one of the Best Firms to Work For, Omaha B2B Magazine as the Best of the Best in the CPA category, and by BKR International as the most outstanding firm in the America’s region with the “Outstanding Firm Management” award. Besides the award from BKR, the firm was a repeat winner of these awards for the 2nd or 3rd time showing a consistency in its mission.
Vokt talked about one of Bland’s latest endeavors, Blend. “Blend is a natural extension of ‘Beyond Accounting’. We’ve taken the strategic partnerships we’ve always had and made them more visible to our clients…we bring more value to our relationships by connecting clients with the rest of the services they’ll need to build and grow their businesses into the future. We’re working on a new concept called ‘BlendU’ that will present opportunities to clients to take immediate advantage of those relationships.”
Jason Tonjes, Managing Shareholder said, “We set out to show the differences between us and other firms. We are innovative in our approach…we prefer to lead rather than follow, and while we show a bit of humor in the way we advertise ourselves, we take our mission to put the client first very seriously. That has played the biggest role in our success.”
