Chris was a founding partner of the accounting firm Kroner Gamble & Company (kg+co) before merging with RDG+Partners in January 2018. With an emphasis on honesty and willingness to engage in conversations that aim to figure out the core underlying issues of a problem, Chris appreciates the process of helping clients see opportunities and challenges from a different point of view.
Chris also enjoys creating processes, whether around the office or with clients, to increase efficiency, consistency and help analyze financial information to make better decisions. While many CPAs focus on historical analysis of last year’s numbers, Chris believes helping improve and project the current year numbers is much more valuable.
