"Outstanding service is what each client expects. When preparing an engagement, I make sure the dealership understands our progress and knows when their financial statements and tax returns will be available. Anything less doesn’t deliver the quality CBM promises."
During his almost 10 years in public accounting, Bryan Klieber, CPA, has learned that accounting services are more than technical skills and an understanding of accounting; they require the ability to effectively communicate, and collaborate, make connections with clients and colleagues. He strives to demonstrate those qualities and makes sure to leave a positive impact on those that he works with. Responsiveness, a careful attention to detail and convenience for the client drive his client service philosophy.
The Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell (CBM) manager primarily serves clients in CBM’s automotive dealership industry by performing audits and reviews for larger dealership clients and preparing their business tax returns. He also prepares financial statements and tax returns for the organizations in the not-for-profit and construction sectors. Bryan knows that to continuously benefit clients in the automotive industry, he has to stay aware of any changes in the rules or regulations affecting the industry. To stay current, he attends trainings, including AICPA’s annual dealership conference, and keeps up to speed with weekly automotive industry alerts so that he is ready to handle industry developments that may impact dealerships.
During his time in public accounting, Bryan has gained the trust and respect of colleagues that he has worked with through the years. He supervises teams serving dealership clients and enjoys teaching newer accountants helpful tips and best practices that he has picked up while at CBM.
Bryan likes to spend personal time relaxing with friends and family or enjoying the outdoors. In the summertime, he takes time off to hit the open road and attend concerts at venues across the country. He also enjoys collecting and playing an assortment of acoustic and electronic instruments, including the didgeridoo and guitar.
