Clark Nuber's expertise was touted by many of our foundation peers long before we retained their services. They consistently meet our expectations and raise the bar for themselves. When our foundation pursued its first program related investment, we were impressed by the extra attention they paid to due diligence. The high level of service and longevity of their staff differentiates them from other providers. In a word, Clark Nuber is invaluable.

Clark Nuber is well diversified in terms of the services it offers, which satisfy the long-term needs of my company. Those services are provided by professionals with a high degree of expertise, who take a very relationship-based approach with us. I have found that Clark Nuber takes care of their employees, who in turn take great care of their clients. The company walks its talk in terms of values towards its employees and clients.

Chief Financial Officer
Wright Hotels, Inc.

I have gone through a number of audit firm changes during my career and this by far was the easiest transition. My staff all affirmed this many times over during the last several months. The theme that was repeated was that the CN folks were not only competent and technically skilled, but were great to work with. If it is possible to be excited about audits and accountants, then this may be the time!

Don Mortenson
Chief Financial Officer
Seattle Pacific University

Clark Nuber has taken extraordinary steps to understand our company as it has changed and grown. We initially hired them to do our annual financial statement audit because we had heard about their reputation for excellence, integrity, and service. We now engage them to provide technical training, accounting software consultation, and quarterly business reviews. They also help us stay up-to-date with new accounting standards and practices. They help us to clearly communicate our business to our members and to the outside world. If I had one word to describe the Clark Nuber team, it is proactive.

If I had to use one word to describe Clark Nuber, it would be ‘awesome.’ During our search process for an accounting firm, it was important to me that whoever we hired had a clear and deep understanding of the hospitality industry. Clark Nuber fit that requirement. When the Clark Nuber team began working with us to do an internal audit, they conducted themselves in such a professional manner. Our team was extremely comfortable with the process and the way it was administered. It was the first experience I’d had with an internal audit that didn’t feel intimidating, Their recommendations were clear and made good business sense. I feel this was a direct result of the high level of integrity of the Clark Nuber team. I would highly recommend them without reservation.

General Manager
Sleeping Lady Resort

During the proposal process, the people from Clark Nuber were very responsive and sensitive to our issues. I thought that if they paid that kind of attention right up front, then they would certainly do the same thing during the actual job. I was right. They delivered what they said they would, and when they said they would. It was an effortless process from my standpoint.

Phil Romney
Vice President of Finance
SeaBright Insurance

It’s hard to imagine using the word ‘fantastic’ in reference to an accounting firm, but that’s what comes to mind when I think of everyone I’ve come in contact with from Clark Nuber. They do a great job from an accounting standpoint, but it is the people I work with who are really warm and personable. They are service-oriented and work as a team with everyone.

Heather Bolek
Assistant Vice President of Human Resources
Financial Pacific Leasing

Our relationship with Clark Nuber is a lot like our relationship with other service providers – it doesn’t boil down to the company, but to the individual people; I like them all. They are reasonable and professional about their approach and I know I can count on them.

Kim Bottles
Former Chief Financial Officer
RAFN Company

There are odd challenges that come with having Alaskan bush clients, including taxes, and accounting issues like payroll. The beautiful thing from my standpoint is that I know there will be a full-out effort by the Clark Nuber people to help me solve those problems. In my opinion, they are a complete team with broad expertise, who also happen to be personable. I look at them as a diligent, caring family.

Mike Rogers
Personal Chief Financial Officer
Mystic Lake LLC

Our experience with Clark Nuber has been an extremely positive. They have handled both our taxes and our reviewed statements over the years, as well as provided assistance with a few estate planning and business research projects. The quality of the work they produce is very high and they have consistently met deadlines. They have a great team working for them -- everyone we work with seems to take a personal interest in our business, is knowledgeable, pleasant to talk with and always willing to help and answer questions. I consider them a valued part of our team and a direct contributor to our achievements.

Julie LaPrarie
Controller
Rowley Properties, Inc.

I was impressed with Clark Nuber. At our first meeting the partner dove into the details of our government invoices to get a clear understanding of the challenges at hand. And their on-site accountant was energetic, organized and focused. She quickly put our books into ‘GAAP’ condition.

Rebecca Yeatman
Executive Vice President
Harbor Wing Technologies

We selected Clark Nuber because they work with a lot of private, closely-held businesses like ours and have other well-respected clients in the HVAC industry. Clark Nuber has more expertise and diversification than the smaller firms, and we get more attention from them than we would from the bigger firms. They’re responsive and professional and conduct themselves as our partners.

Jeff Garber
Chief Financial Officer
Sunset Air

When I think about Clark Nuber, one word comes to mind: polished. They completely understood our needs. I was impressed by their level of knowledge. Each person on the team was well prepared with a solid understanding of the job at hand.

Julie Zommers
Director of Finance
University Bookstore

Clark Nuber brings a level of expertise and service that is hard to match. We have some complicated issues and we are a fast moving organization. Besides being technically of the highest quality, in terms of understanding the changing laws and IRS regulations, they bring an element of creativity, intellectual rigor and responsiveness that I am very satisfied with.

Craig Stewart
President
Apex Foundation

We retained Clark Nuber because we were impressed by the deep knowledge that they bring to tax, accounting, and consulting matters. For example, they helped us better understand our contractual allowance and bad debt estimates. The CN partner on the engagement demonstrated a depth of understanding of key relationships that resulted in clarifying our existing model and how it works. His ability to grasp the models methodology greatly enhanced its utility in providing estimates for financial reporting. While a "local firm" they are connected to national and global organizations which provide opportunities to examine issues in broader context. I appreciate the ability to tap such a wealth of technical expertise locally.

Paul L. Shillam
Controller
Pacific Medical Centers

We selected CN for their extensive experience with both healthcare industry audits and not for profit organizations. It was great not having to educate CN staff about complicated healthcare-specific issues. They are always available to us throughout the year for consultation and opinions on complex issues, which helps avoid misunderstandings during the audit. I would describe the Clark Nuber team as great partners - they are responsive to questions and want clients to be right on track.

Hermes Shahbazian
CFO
International Community Health Services

Since beginning to work with Clark Nuber in 2005, CN has exceeded our expectations year after year, in every way. As the audit process mandated by FASB and circumstances in corporate America have required deeper and more expansive audits, CN has worked with us to simplify and streamline our process. They have demonstrated a willingness to help us drive cost down while improving the accuracy and timeliness of our reporting. We highly recommend them to others seeking a professional and personal accounting firm.
