Welcome to the Mercier Group

In choosing The Mercier Group to meet your accounting and management consulting needs, we hope that you will quickly experience an attitude of service. As a small firm, our services are significantly more individualized. We enjoy an intimate working relationship with our clients and are an integral part of their operations. As auditors and financial consultants, we strive to maintain a thorough understanding of client organizations, their needs, goals and environmental issues affecting operations. With the growing complexity of information systems, government regulations, risk management, banking, financing and investment issues, we realize that in addition to year end services, clients need assistance throughout the year with a variety of matters. As independent professional advisors, we consider this participation an integral part of our practice.

The value of mentoring client staff or partnering with management personnel significantly enhances the value of our services. Having experience to quickly identify strengths and weakness in the accounting system, we assist management by providing learning opportunities for staff and often participate in strategic planning initiatives. We also find that involving client staff in the audit process or in solving day-to-day problems helps to reduce stress and quickly fosters an academic challenge for ambitious personnel. Together, we nurture basic accounting systems into fully productive informational resources. This builds confidence and enhances an organizations ability to face new challenges as they arise.

Our success is to see that each small business client achieves its goals of financial independence and that each not-for-profit or governmental entity makes full use of its resources for program services.
