Client Stories

Clear Design

Closely Held Businesses

Our office furniture manufacturing company was started by our father in Sheffield, England in 1982. We began operations in the U.S. in 2003. Since then, we have seen our business grow every year because of our agility and innovation in adapting to change and challenges such as the economic crisis of 2008. Through it all, Clear Design has remained true to its values, such as Customer Focus – every service we offer, the customer is top of mind. We believe in placing team before self and being authentic and trustworthy is how our clients and team should be treated. When we needed stronger review and attestation expertise, we wanted an accounting firm that not only had the expertise we were looking for but shared our company values. Whether helping us navigate GAAP changes, especially in revenue recognition, or purchasing property to meet our continued growth, ATKG was there. Our team at ATKG understands the value of partnership. We are not a transaction or check the box client. We are in it together. They are committed to understanding the uniqueness of our business, because they too keep their customer’s top of mind in all they do.

Running a restaurant is a juggling act. You must be a chef, an operator, a counselor, and a business owner all at the same time. We understand what you’re going through.

Cancer Insight

Closely Held Businesses

As a Clinical Research Organization, Cancer Insight is deeply devoted to discovering, developing, and testing emerging bio-technologies related to cancer therapies. We are passionate about the work we do because we know we are transforming impossibilities into hope. After feeling lost in the shuffle when working with a large national firm, we knew we needed an accounting firm who was as committed to helping others as we are. ATKG came highly recommended. After meeting with them, we knew they were a natural fit and a visibly unique firm. Their team members like where they work and believe in the difference they are making for their clients - that resonated with us. Cancer Insight works to provide a higher standard of care for cancer patients and ATKG does the same for its clients. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the specialized expertise and insight, we receive from them. The ATKG way means our success is their success which is why we value their commitment to Cancer Insight and its mission.

Infinity Systems

Real Estate & Construction

We began working with ATKG in 2003. We had an Employee Stock Option Program (ESOP) in place that was threatening to destroy our cash flow and decided our current firm wasn’t quite up to the task of assisting in its demise. [With ATKG], Infinity Systems was able to shut down the ESOP in a way that was both beneficial to the employees affected and lifesaving to the company’s bottom line. Along the way, [they were] right there to assist us in making the best decisions for our firm. Today, our partnership with ATKG is more than 15 years old! We’ve seen each other’s children grow, our companies flourish, and our employees blossom. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service, quality, and expertise of the employees at ATKG and can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store!

3 Star Daylighting

Oil, Gas & Energy

When 3 Star and ATKG began working together, we knew it was going to be a lasting relationship. We have a very personal relationship. They are always willing to take on additional tasks or research issues to give us the most accurate accounting or tax information. They’re also the first ones to bring a piece of wisdom or current events, long before I get it from another source. They are forward-thinking, progressive, responsible. ATKG not only stands behind us and always supports us, but they stand with us and work as a team. We appreciate ATKG’s integrity and honesty, but we also appreciate their friendship. They help us make smart business moves, utilizing all the resources at our disposal. It’s a very good partnership, and one we’re looking forward to continuing for a long time.
