Accounting:

Anthony Clark Market Managing Partner Dixon Hughes Goodman Anthony is the Market Managing Partner of the Memphis and Dallas/Fort Worth markets of DHG. He has more than 30 years of public accounting experience in all areas of forprofit and not-for-profit organizations. How do your client engagements usually begin? Although we’re the largest accounting firm in the region, we work with businesses from every point in the spectrum — burgeoning entrepreneurs and established national companies alike. What all of these clients have in common is a desire to operate at their highest possible level. They may not know where to begin, but it usually starts with a phone call. What are the barriers your clients face when reviewing their accountancy practices? Unless there are major, obvious issues, a business’s approach to its accounting policies and practices tends to stay the same year after year. Unfortunately, tax laws and business regulations don’t stay the same. So while they’re aware that the climate is constantly changing, many businesses feel overwhelmed by the process of re-examining their needs beyond the minimum required to maintain compliance. We want to help our clients look beyond short-term fixes and stay agile for the long haul. What is the most rewarding aspect of your practice? I enjoy being able to find opportunities for our clients to operate more efficiently and effectively. We build their confidence in our ability to save money and improve profitability, which gives them the freedom to focus on their core business.
