Strothman+Co In a Strong Place to Support Clients in 2023 & Beyond

At Strothman+Co, we believe old ways don’t open new doors. We’re constantly innovating our practice to bring our clients a range of forward-looking solutions that deliver successful outcomes for all. 

That’s why twice a year, our leaders share everything we’re working on with the Strothman team. Uniting everyone around our strategic plan helps us deliver new, innovative ways to help our clients build wealth. 

Today, we’re sharing the highlights with our wider community. Here is the 2023 State of the Firm. 

Strothman+Co Turns 40

This month, Strothman+Co celebrates a very special milestone: the firm’s 40th birthday. Since Ray Strothman founded Strothman+Co in February 1983, the firm has grown exponentially. 

Today, the Strothman+Co team is over 80 members strong and offers a wide range of services to both organizations and individuals, including audit, assurance, tax planning, outsourced accounting, and more. 

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have been along on this journey with us. Strothman+Co Founder and President Chairman Ray Strothman reflects: 

“It’s always been our philosophy to develop meaningful partnerships with our clients by doing great work that helps them grow their businesses. Our goal isn’t to help companies survive tax season; it’s to help them thrive and grow over the years and decades to come.”

Our team is excited to celebrate our 40th birthday with a special celebration later this year. But for now, our mind is on the next 40 years. We’re entirely focused on how our holistic and innovative approach will help our clients continue to build wealth for years to come.

Strothman+Co Refocuses Around Core Values & Long-Term Strategic Vision

We recently announced a new set of core values to our team, and today, we’re sharing them externally for the first time. If you’ve worked with Strothman+Co previously, we’re sure these five values will resonate with you. 

We’re confident that our commitment to these values will enable our firm to continue to guide and advise entrepreneurial-minded businesses and individuals using a holistic, innovative approach to wealth building. 

Achieve the Extraordinary.

Ambition. Determination. Integrity. Commitment to excellence, and making our clients the hero: because their wins are our wins, and ours, theirs. This is what extraordinary looks like. And when we achieve it in ourselves, we achieve it for our clients. 

Engage Fearlessly.

Connect. Collaborate. Engage. Listen – and speak up, advocating with passion, truthfulness, and transparency. Embracing and harnessing our individual uniqueness adds up to one big success story that we are writing together. 

Think Big. Ask Why — And Why Not

Open minds let the light in, and curiosity makes a great window. We love to wonder and learn: after all, passion and inspiration drive innovation. As individuals and a team, we support the passion to find out why, and go further. 

Make a Difference.

One spark can light a fire that warms more souls than we know. Actively caring for our teammates and their families, our clients, and our community helps us, too. It’s not just the right thing to do: it’s the best thing

Create and Spread Joy. 

Perspective is everything, and an appreciative outlook makes our success all the richer. We collectively revel in our work and take time to cultivate and share the things that grow joy.
