A Letter From our Managing Partner

Beyond numbers... tradition... expectation...

Thank you for taking time to learn more about PKS. Founded as a traditional accounting firm in 1978, PKS has grown into the area’s largest and most comprehensive financial service firm. Our Firm’s range of expertise extends to many industries and entities that are central to the Delmarva economy. Once, accountants were recorders of history – signatures at the bottom of a tax return, the calculators of depreciation. But today the business of accounting is much more. PKS bridges the gap between generations with an ever-evolving approach to managing clients’ accounting and financial-planning needs. We are proactive advisors and business partners, not simply historians. We become part of our client’s team of advisors. We’re in constant communication with our clients, regularly helping solve everyday problems, not just in contact with them once a year.

As trusted advisors we are always looking ahead to provide proactive solutions. This takes a commitment to serve and constantly learning about new technologies, legislative changes and market forces.

I am frequently asked “what is the secret to PKS’ success?” The answer is simple; it is our people. Our team of professionals is dedicated to making our client’s challenges their own and providing personalized solutions accordingly. I often tell others that our Firm is a people business first and a numbers business second which is evidenced by how our team fulfills the Firm’s core values of: Accountability, Integrity, Passion, Confidentiality, and Creativity. I am proud to be associated with every member of our team and serve with them side by side on a daily basis.

We look forward to working with you.

-Dan O’Connell

PKS Managing Partner

In business and personal planning, everyone faces unusual problems and unique opportunities. Since our success is linked to yours, we go beyond the traditional accountant client relationship and become an integral part of your management advisory team. As an independent, proactive, objective partner, we pay close personal attention to issues affecting our clients. We anticipate your future needs and communicate with you on a regular basis. When we foresee critical issues, we alert our clients.

Our expertise combined with innovative thinking allows us to convert potential problems into opportunities.

Does your CPA go beyond the numbers… in your personal planning… in your business planning… in your future? Does your CPA offer similar solutions to all clients, or are they responsive to your individual situation? At PKS we are business people first, then accountants. We are much more than the people who keep your books and prepare your tax return. Our people truly make a difference. Constantly striving to better serve clients, we develop a team of highly competent individuals who are innovative and progressive in meeting your needs. They understand the impact of today’s decisions on tomorrow’s opportunities.

Our goal is to help you achieve your business, personal and financial goals.

Your needs are unique to your business or personal financial situation. When problems or opportunities arise, you need individualized assistance and advice in a timely fashion. PKS has the competitive edge of being small enough to give you prompt individualized attention, yet large enough to provide the comprehensive and sophisticated accounting, auditing and advisory services typically found in much larger firms. We believe that our partnership fosters growth and success for both of us. In our most successful client partnerships, our ideals match the ideals of our clients. When we combine the right team from our office with your management team, add hard work, and creative thinking, we achieve your goals.

That’s our formula for your success…
