Testimonials


Thanks for a great workshop, Dom! I gained valuable new perspective, which I can already see has made me a better leader.

-Angie Hardy, CPA, Revenue Recognition Manager, Epicor Software Corporation, Austin, TX


The presentation to the MICPA team back in February was a preview, but you drove home your message regarding the change and evolution of the profession at our Members Advisory Symposium. Your insights and enthusiasm were so impactful and I was pleased to hear all the positive feedback on your keynote and breakout sessions.

Thank you for being part of our MICPA family.

-Peggy A Dzierzawski, CAE, President & CEP, Michigan Association of CPAs


Thank you for -

Being tough, but fair with me and all of my partners.
Always being direct and honest with us.
Giving out compliments when deserved, but not every day just for getting out of bed.
Helping us through many difficult conversations.
Helping us recognize when things were good but seemed not so good.
Your responsiveness to our needs.
Your sage advice.
Being a friend.
Being a professional in every sense of the word.
Caring about what you do so much that it oozes out of you.
Most of all, thanks for being someone I felt like I could discuss anything with and know that you would not judge me, but would take what I said and try to help my firm and me be more successful.

The CPA Firm Management Association engaged The Succession Institute, more importantly Bill Reeb and Dom Cingoranelli, to lead our first Leadership Institute in 2017. The program was designed for CPA firm managers looking to enhance their key skills through a high impact customized four-day workshop focused on Situational Leadership, trends, business models, governance, accountability and the development of people. The customized tailoring of the program and the Succession Institute’s commitment to knowing our group will lead to class members being able to apply lessons learned and success both personally and professionally. We couldn’t be more pleased with our partnership with the Succession Institute.

- Kim Fantaci, President, CPA Firm Management Association (CPAFMA), Dayton, OH


I just wanted to thank you for the last two days. You have an amazing talent and the knowledge and experience to go with it. That was in my mind the best retreat we have ever had in the last 27 years.

- David J. Cassady, Chief Growth Officer, Cassady Schiller CPAs & Advisors, Cincinnati, OH


Having Dominic Cingoranelli on board as our CPA was one of the best business decisions we made at Singleton in years. Dom’s knowledge and advise was needed at a time when we were on the verge of either taking a chance and growing or downsizing to cut costs. When jobs started flowing in and we started winning orders, Dom’s advice on management and tracking was some of the best I’ve had and has been appreciated very much. I can easily contribute a large portion of our last couple of successful years to the information and recommendations provided by Dominic.

-Cody Singleton, President, Singleton Sheet Metal Works Inc., Pueblo West, CO


The reason I like being involved in strategic planning meetings with Dominic Cingoranelli is his uncanny ability to get to the heart of planning and keeping a bunch of high-strung individuals in line without upsetting them personally. His hard work and planning are always a winner for the company for which he is consulting.

-Keith Swerdfeger, Chairman, K. R. Swerdfeger Construction, Pueblo West, CO


Consultant isn't an appropriate title for Bill Reeb. He is more like your most valuable employee. Ignoring the fact that the decisions made would negatively affect his personal profit, Bill continued to push forward the actions necessary to do what was best for our company and it's future. I would recommend Bill as a consultant to anyone willing to listen and act upon difficult decisions.

-Pam Teich, President Lammes Candies Since 1885, Inc., Austin, TX


Dom Cingoranelli has helped Gobin's Inc. with succession planning and management training. I have been involved in many Succession Planning and Management Training Seminars but the advice and training that we received from Dom was the best.

-Bob Gobin, President, Gobin's Inc., Pueblo, CO


Dom has been a great resource for our firm in the quality and professionalism rendered in assisting in the never ending search for qualified talent. Dom is very fair and always delivers excellent value; his commitment to our business and industry is apparent in his manner and conduct. We are pleased to have been associated with Dom and feel free to recommend him to other industry and non-industry members. Dom is a great asset and a consummate professional.

-Rick C. Givan, President, Recycled Materials Company, Arvada, CO


We have utilized Dom and his expertise on several of our CDOT construction projects. He has facilitated our formal partnering sessions between CDOT, our prime contractors, and their sub-contractors. Dom's keen knowledge of our type of construction along with his easy-going manner makes these sessions both enjoyable and beneficial. I would strongly recommend Dom for partnering and dispute resolution meetings.

-Paul A. Westhoff, P. E., Resident Engineer, Colorado Department of Transportation, Lamar, CO


Dom's article (entitled 'Our Most Recent [Unfortunate] Lesson on Leadership') hit the nail on the head. It definitely brings up the difference between being a manager and a leader. Bottom line is a leader must have the traits printed in Dom's article.

-Bill Hinton, Engineer, SEMA Construction, Englewood, CO


My professional experience with Dom Cingoranelli has always been positive. He is a resourceful, creative and practical advice giver on all levels.

-Don Banner, Attorney at Law, Pueblo, CO


I have known Dom for quite some time now and have had many discussions with regard to business growth, planning, and system controls. He has provided me with insight and forethought on many business growth decisions, and I continue to value his opinions with the highest regard. I have stated this many times in the past and I'll say it again, it goes back to when I first met Dom, 'I learned more from Dom in the first ten minutes I met him than I did in seven years with three previous accountants combined.'

-James S. Bartmess, President, Centennial State Paving, Inc., Pueblo, CO


Many thanks to Dom for his expert meeting facilitation during several partnering sessions. I am very satisfied with his outstanding customer service!

-Benjamin (Doug) Lollar, Resident Engineer, Colorado Department of Transportation, Pueblo, CO
