"Our only business is insurance, and we wanted someone as our independent auditors who had a similar focus and expertise. We also favor a firm that is small enough that we can get personal attention from the principals, yet large enough to handle our diverse and growing needs. Now that we have chosen, and lived with, the Strohm Ballweg team, we also value the promised responsiveness and business partnership attitude."
As the Chairperson of an Audit Committee of a fraternal life insurance company, I have had the opportunity to work with Strohm Ballweg for the past 5 years. I have great respect for Strohm Ballweg's industry expertise and knowledge. The staff at Strohm Ballweg has always been very professional and their work product is outstanding. I have also found the staff to be easy to work with and I greatly appreciate their prompt and accurate responses to the issues raised by our Audit Committee.
DMI established a strategic partnership with Strohm Ballweg in 2004 to act as the Business Office of DMI, performing various functions including accounts receivable, accounts payable, financial statement preparation for mandated reporting and tax form preparation. The staff at Strohm Ballweg is part of the DMI team providing financial advice and regulatory input on our business. The typical greeting by Strohm Ballweg is "How can I help?” Strohm Ballweg has truly provided value added service to DMI.
We’ve utilized Strohm Ballweg for audit and tax services for many years because we believe they are the leaders in insurance industry expertise. Their involvement in the industry trade organizations and rule-setting bodies gives us the confidence that we will not miss any new developments. They really know and understand our diverse business enterprise. Strohm Ballweg delivers knowledgeable professional service that we can depend on.
They never make me feel like they are too busy for a question, and their responsiveness is exceptional. We keep in touch throughout the year. It’s never "the audit's over… see you next year.” I appreciate the proactive approach. They help me keep up on matters I need to know. What sets them apart is their people: knowledgeable, easy to work with, and responsive to clients needs.
