Client Testimonials

Our CPA firm of 50 professionals was experiencing strong growth in the Tax area. We needed an additional Partner. Unfortunately, we had no one in the pipeline that was ready to be promoted for the position. We heard about Beatley Palmer from one of our friendly competitors. We retained Beatley Palmer to help us find the much needed additional partner. We had used various recruiting firms in the past but never for this level of a position. Beatley Palmer exceeded our expectations. They took the time up front to meet with all of our current Partners to not only understand our requirements but to get a good "feel" of the type of person who was successful at our firm. They really understood our corporate culture. They not only found someone who satisfied our clients’ technical and service needs, but someone who relates well to our staff.

Managing Partner - CPA firm – Northern Virginia

We needed a “shirt sleeved” Assistant Controller and we needed one fast. Our current Assistant Controller left us with little notice. Beatley Palmer met with us to understand our needs and quickly came up with a suitable replacement.

Controller – Real Estate/Property Management firm in Montgomery County MD

Our Professional Service firm was in transition. We were combining our headquarters on the west coast with our larger office in Washington DC. This involved moving the entire accounting and finance department to DC. We had no idea if the existing members of this department would want to move east. Beatley Palmer immediately began vetting various levels of accounting and finance professionals that would accommodate whatever scenario developed. It turned out no one in the department wanted to come east, but our current CFO was willing to help with the transition. Beatley Palmer guided us in the selection of our new CFO who possessed the experience necessary to not only transfer all our accounting and financial records, but had the skills to rebuild the department from scratch. Beatley Palmer help make a potential chaotic transition very manageable.
