“I was introduced to Managing Partner, Joe Romagnoli, 20 years ago,” says John Spargo, owner of J. Spargo & Associates, Inc. “CST Group has been working with us from the start. They know my company from the inside out and have always guided us in the right direction. Specifically, they have helped us with updating our financial processes, forecasting cash flow, and identifying problem areas that need to be revamped. As a business owner, it can be difficult to keep track of every detail, and CST Group has been a strong resource in helping me do so. I have always trusted CST Group’s professional advice. When I had a prospect interested in acquiring my company, I turned to CST Group for their expertise. CST Group has always produced the highest quality of work, and after 20 years with the firm, I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. CST has been with me through the growth of my business and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a firm to fulfill all of their financial needs.”
“We have developed a unique and collaborative relationship working with CST Group over the past 15 years,” says Cassaday & Company Principal Christopher Krell. “What stands out the most to me is just how much CST Group’s people—from the firm’s leaders to the staff accountants—care personally about our well-being. They really have a passion for what they do and provide an incredible level of service to their clients. CST Group has a tremendous depth of expertise and resources, yet they maintain the right personal touch with a level of responsiveness that is second-to-none. Our clients who have worked with CST Group have had a unanimously positive experience.”
“CST Group’s team has an unmatched depth of experience,” says MedForce, Inc. President, Jon Bucklaw. “Their team of CPAs has a diverse talent pool to assist in all areas of accounting. Not only are they extremely responsive, but they have taken the time to get to know each division of our company and each division’s individual needs and issues. They are well-connected in the community and have been instrumental in helping us build relationships with key banking and financial institutions as well.”
“CST Group has not only served as our firm’s CPA,” says Vaughan, Fincher & Sotelo, PC Principal Donna Fincher, “but over the tenure of our longstanding relationship, we’ve referred many individuals who have become mutual clients. We have tremendous confidence in their abilities, both in terms of meeting our law firm’s accounting needs as well as the income tax and other accounting needs of the clients we refer. I know when I refer clients to CST Group that they will receive responsive service and great advice.”
