Who is Silver Bridge and what does a career at our firm look like?

We recognize it’s the people that make our firm successful. Not only do we love working with numbers, but we love working with people. Our firm is a group of entrepreneurially-spirited individuals with a high degree of integrity and desire to help our business clients flourish. Our clients are experiencing explosive growth and are in need of consultants who can assist in the transition from sole-proprietorship to S-Corp, C-Corp and Partnership status. Our CPAs are serious about serving clients to help their businesses “win.” Their strategic and analytic prowess guide clients in a compassionate manner to provide the professional support needed to find their “Bridge to Success.”

We are proud to be different than the average tax and accounting firm. Many of our CPAs, accounting and administrative staff enjoy working part time hours during the off-season. We offer a flexible schedule, professional growth, company-matched retirement savings, company-paid health insurance, paid time off and holiday pay.

“I enjoy being home more when my kids have summer break. It allows me the flexibility a family needs when work is a bit more demanding in the spring and fall during extension season.”
