Firm Management Philosophy
Integrity, Objectivity, Professionalism, and Vision are the ideals that resonate throughout our firm.
Rives & Associates, LLP is an accounting firm that thrives on being different. We have developed a service model that is more responsive to our clients. Clients who
have previous experience with other accounting firms quickly find that working with Rives & Associates, LLP is a different experience altogether. We act as a partner in
our client’s enterprises, not as a vendor. We think this is the best and most effective way to structure a relationship.
We have a twenty five year history of exceeding the expectations of our clients. Our firm was started on the premise that our clients should have high expectations
of us and we have even higher expectations of ourselves. The result has been an accounting firm that provides trusted, long-term relationships, with the depth of services
that larger accounting firms offer, at lower costs to our clients.
Our perspective is that a knowledgeable independent advisor should be able to relate to the unique problems of our clients and their interrelationships with similar
organizations in the public and private sector. This perspective, coupled with our working experience with a wide variety of entities, enables us to provide innovative
and practical solutions to the problems and issues our clients face.
Our partners and senior managers maintain a high degree of client involvement. We understand that professionals who have gained specific client knowledge through
on-site experience are best equipped to serve our clients, so we are committed to returning team members to the same engagements each year. This continuity helps control
costs and saves time, by making sure you are working with trusted professionals who have a clear understanding of your goals and strategies.
