Elevative Networks

Elevative Networks

Elevative Networks is a Northern Virginia-based managed services provider (MSP) offering comprehensive IT solutions to small and mid-sized businesses. Owner and CEO David Cross founded Elevative Networks in 2005 and selected CST Group for the accounting needs of his business. “I did my own research and interviewed a number of accounting firms,” says Cross. “CST Group stood out on several levels that are important to me including the firm’s presence in the community, its connections with other business service providers, and its size; I wanted a firm large enough to have a lot of resources but small enough to provide personal attention.” Elevative Networks has relied on CST Group for its tax and audit services, but Cross cites the firm’s business advisory services as having the most value to his business. “They’ve offered us great advice and guidance for some key decisions we’ve made including a recent modification to our business status from LLC to S Corp. Their creativity and insight has helped us save a tremendous sum of money over the past 7 years,” he comments. Referring to his confidence in CST Group’s services, Cross adds that “when you have your own business, there are a lot of things that can keep you up at night, but accounting is not one of them for me.”
