Testimonials


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


When it comes to tough business decisions, you often know what you should do, but you get lost in the maze of “what ifs; Bill reminds you of what really works and what really matters. As Bill would say “Don’t plan for the worst case scenario, plan for the likely scenario."

-Darsi Casey, CPA, Managing Partner, Casey, Neilon & Associates, LLC, Carson City, NV


In succession planning the objective is to combine the past with the future and make it a present feasible plan beneficial to the entities involved. Bill Reeb accomplished this mission! Another part of the equation is completing the task from beginning to end. Bill Reeb accomplished this mission!

-Nick Magone, CPA, Couto, DeFranco and Magone, New York and New Jersey


Bill Reeb has helped us change our firm - and more importantly my life! We used to work like crazy, sweat the small stuff, and not make that much money for a tremendous amount of effort. Now we work no overtime, treasure our employees, make a great living, and really enjoy helping our clients! How does he do it - Call him or more importantly call me I will share with you how vital Bill has been to our firm.

-Eric Rigby, CPA/PFS, Rigby Financial Group, New Orleans, LA


A few weeks after graduating from college, I substituted for my father's attendance at a seminar since he was struggling w/ diabetic complications and couldn't attend. The seminar was led by Bill Reeb. I was blown away. When my father later died the following year and my family's (now) third-generation firm almost collapsed, I bought and read from cover to cover Bill's book Start Consulting: How To Walk The Talk & used the principles therein to formulate a strategic approach to resurrecting the firm and servicing its clients. Whether he'll admit it or not, Bill has played a critical role in my success throughout my career.

-Matthew Roger, CPA, Managing Partner, Roger and Keith, CPAs, New Orleans, LA


Dom Cingoranelli has been my accountant/business consultant for over 25 years. He has helped me through many business changes, including relationships with a partnership, financial planning, start-up (and closing later) a new corporation, and approaches to business problems over the years. His business acumen is exemplary. He is easy to work with, understanding, but definite in his recommendations. All my experiences with Dom have been good ones, and I certainly recommend him.

-Paul Radway, MD, Pueblo, CO


Dominic has a unique sense of generational issues which makes his perspective creative and valuable. He tells it like it is--not how we want to hear it. His responsiveness is unparalleled in business--I always hear from him within a couple of hours of contacting him. If you need help with succession planning and other small business issues, Dominic is the man.

-Rick Reimann, CPA/Owner, Lenhart, Mason & Associates, Casper, WY


Dominic has facilitated partnering sessions for my company on more than one occasion and has done a great job. He is always prepared and knowledgeable of the needs of each particular group he is working with. He does his homework and comes ready to go! I highly recommend him.

-Eddie Davidsen, Project Manager, Interstate Highway Construction, Denver, CO


Dominic did a great job of jumping into the project and getting to know the players and issues. We had some challenges with interpersonal relations and Dom was able to get the players to the table and re-establish dialogue that was key in delivering a successful project.

-Jeff Hale, Project Manager, Nevada Department of Transportation, Reno, NV


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 and trusted Dom for many years now. Over the past few years, Dom has facilitated organization planning and strategy for the Board of Directors and staff of the Pueblo Economic Development Corporation (PEDCo). His depth of knowledge and his ability to herd cats has been invaluable in defining how we needed to modify our workings and move the organization forward. I wholeheartedly endorse Dom's abilities in organizational strategy, planning, and facilitation.

-Ken Conyers, Senior Engineer, Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc., Vadnais Heights, MN


I have known Dom for over twenty years and he has consistently applied "big picture" thinking in his view of the accounting profession, and in particular, how CPA firms can be operated, managed and led more profitably and efficiently. He has a proven track record of helping accounting firms to become successful. Whether he is conferring one-on-one with a managing/senior partner or sharing his knowledge in a forum before a large group of practitioners, Dom simply "knows his stuff" and articulates it in an incisive and personable fashion.

-Steven Sacks, CPA, CGMA, ABC, Communication Strategist, Solutions to Results, LLC, New York, NY


Dominic did a great job as a facilitator on a complex CDOT highway project. Project team worked well together throughout the job coordinating well with adjacent TREX project on IH 25.
