“Gulick Group has worked with CST Group for over 20 years, starting with the founder Charles Cocke,” said Amy Swineford, Vice President of Gulick Group. “Since we’re a niche industry in real estate, we needed a firm that could provide hands on attention, had extensive real estate knowledge, and could guide our team in the right direction when making complex decisions. CST Group has been able to accomplish all of the above in addition to providing us with valuable advice on tax entities. When we’re searching for property to build on, we involve CST Group in the process to make sure that we’re not only staying compliant with tax guidelines but also that we’re making a cost-effective business decision for our company.”
“I’ve been with CST Group my whole life,” said Byron Cocke, Co-Managing Partner/ Co-Founder of CFI. “While my initial decision to work with the firm was a relationship based one, I’ve been so impressed with their performance that I recently consolidated most of my accounting needs over to CST Group. Right now my business’ health is closely tied to the services that CST Group provides us. The firm’s team of experienced professionals works with us on both the tax and audit side, and they’ve helped us save money in the process—which is always a good thing! In addition to CST Group’s performance, I enjoy working with all of the professionals there—they’re extremely customer-oriented. I would highly recommend CST Group to my business network, friends, and colleagues.”
