With our staff of professionals with knowledge in several different areas, our company is able to deliver quality personal service that other firms simply cannot match.  Our staff believes that our personality is just as important as our technical knowledge.  Therefore, our experts are carefully selected not only for their top-notch professional skills,  but for their ability to communicate with our clients in a patient and understandable manner.  We pride ourselves on being the advisors that clients can trust and enjoy talking with.

We specialize in professional service businesses such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, architects, etc., but with clientele in industries such as construction & subcontracting, landscape, retail, restaurants and bars, real estate, franchises, and many other fields, our organizational experience is exceptionally diverse and adaptable.  Our clients range across several states, so we are able to offer an exclusive portfolio of multi-state tax and operational consulting.

 


Our Mission
To enable our clients to realize significant cost savings and productivity gains from their operations, to help them achieve better profits and compete more effectively in demanding global markets, and to help them to enjoy life.

Our Values:
We change what you can and really should expect from a business partner.  At DeBenedetti & Co., we see and do things a little bit differently than other firms.  These are the standards that we hold ourselves to every day:

Speak Truth:
It’s our obligation to advise our clients on their best overall options; not the “easiest” or “cheapest”, nor what we think they want to hear, but what best meets their actual needs. This commitment is why so many have come to trust and depend on us.

Deliver Sustainable Value:
This is why we’re in business. We’ve come together as an organization because our clients want a relationship that will positively impact their profitability.  We are dedicated to creating real, lasting value for clients through our business relationships with them.  Personality often gets lost in the business world, but we hold it in the highest regard.

The Whole Package:
Knowing what to do is not enough. You must know how to do it as well.  Great strategies must be executed properly to result in actual value. We pride ourselves on producing and delivering the correct solutions in every engagement.

Meet People at The Highest Point of Their Needs:
We strive to grasp the whole scope of each issue, its sources, symptoms and meaning, and strive to deliver according to the highest points of immediate need.  Our staff is always available.  Voice mails and emails are returned within 24 hours and we are often available on nights and weekends.

Seek Responsibility and Be Accountable:
Our company delivers breakthrough value to our clients because we consistently strive to achieve the best possible outcomes.  Our professionals continuously improve their skills, performance and most importantly, results.

Make and Keep Commitments:
We keep our word and meet the commitments we make.  We give nothing less than our best all the time.  No excuses.
