KerberRose awarded the WICPA’s 2017 ‘Company Public Service Award’

KerberRose SC is the recipient of the 2017 Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants (WICPA) Company Public Service Award.

The Company Public Service Award is given to an organization/firm that demonstrates outstanding efforts to promote public service involvement  at local, regional and state levels. The Company Public Service Award was one of eight WICPA Excellence Awards presented this year.

KerberRose SC and this year’s other Excellence Award recipients were recognized at the 2017 Membership Recognition Banquet and Annual Business Meeting on May 4 at the Harley-Davidson Museum® in Milwaukee.

KerberRose SC was founded in 1979. With nine offices serving northeast and central Wisconsin, the firm prides itself on serving its clients with a hometown touch.  “We try to modify our engagement approach to meet the specific needs of the client,” said Michael Ruby, CPA, a shareholder at the firm. “Our culture and firm structure allows shareholders and managers to be heavily involved with our clients and easily accessible to them.  We really feel it is important for our clients to get advice from the people they chose to work with. At the end of the day, clients want to be taken care of and treated fairly.”

Ruby said much of the firm’s culture also reflects its belief in community service. Employee volunteer efforts include Rotary, United Way, Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Boards, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Lions Club, high school career fairs, CASA, Workforce Development Initiatives and Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts.  KerberRose offers paid community service time to its team members  and encourages their  involvement and participation within their respective communities.

KerberRose partners and team members participate actively within the accounting associations at both a state and national level.   “We’ve all been given this opportunity to make a very good living pursuing a career in accounting,” he said. “Without the CPAs that came before us, we wouldn’t have the opportunities we have today. KerberRose feels that it is our responsibility to make both our firm and profession better.”
