About Us

Our Client Commitment

Since 1982, ATKG has specialized in tax, accounting, advisory, assurance and litigation support services for a select client base of closely held businesses and large family groups. We are a hands-on firm that has built our business around the entire client experience, not just the result. We leverage a team of intelligent and creative professionals who collaborate to support both your unique financial and life goals. To ensure the perfect partnership, ATKG seeks out engaged clients. We find that clients who are proactive and communicate frequently are the same ones who receive the most rewarding experiences and outcomes. Our roster is full of invested clients. Therefore, we limit the amount we have at any given time to allow for the development and growth of trusted relationships.

Our Team

Strong, meaningful relationships with our clients is key to our firm’s success. But so is developing our team and each individual team member. At ATKG we look for creative and intelligent talent. If that’s you, then bring the ambition, and we’ll provide the resources, along with a fun, progressive work environment. Our boutique size and handpicked client base gives our rock star people control over their professional lives, which, in turn gives them much more control over their personal ones as well.

Strengths Focused Culture

ATKG uses the Gallup CliftonStrengths® assessment, which measures the presence of talent, as the foundation for its people development program. By focusing on our talents as individuals, each team member has a personalized approach to their professional development and is encouraged to invest their time in areas where they can use their natural talent. Our team has invested significant time to learn our individual and team talents and to take action to build our talents into strengths.

Focusing on our strengths has permeated our ATKG culture. When college recruits come to visit our office, they are met with a team that has natural relationship building talents. When we have new projects, we identify individuals who would enjoy working on those sorts of projects based on their talents. When we need some fresh ideas, we look to our teammates that are natural ideas and strategic thinkers. When we need to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time, we turn to our teammates with high execution talents.

ATKG appreciates that each one of us has specific areas of talent and contributes to the firm in a unique way.
