What our clients are saying

  • “We continue to use Tronconi Segarra & Associates because of their excellent service, outstanding professionals and timely feedback and reports. If and when asked, I would certainly recommend the Firm to others.”

    Lana D. Benatovich

    President, National Federation for Just Communities of Western New York
  • “The Firm’s Audit and Tax teams have provided exceptional service during an extreme time of growth and new activity and learning. It is very comforting to know they are there as our partner.”

    Shawn Claybolt

    Controller, Crossfuze
  • “The keys to our successful relationship with Tronconi Segarra & Associates can be summed up as follows: great communication; and the fact that they are true to themselves.”

    “From the time we met their managing partner during our first interview with them, through interactions with various managers and staff accountants that work on our engagement, we were impressed with how open and down-to-earth everyone was. The way in which they presented themselves during that first interview has carried through all these years. They listen to our needs and concerns and don’t merely act as if our business is important to them, they demonstrate that our business is important to them through their skill sets, responsiveness, professionalism, attention to deadlines and details, and enthusiasm for what they do. I feel confident that when I need information or assistance, I can call whoever I need to talk with at the Firm – even the managing partner – and he or she will take my call or give me a call back as soon as possible. They are solid, genuine individuals. It’s great to be able to work with good people. It makes my job much easier.”

    “For the services that they provide to Buffalo State College (not-for-profit accounting, auditing and tax services; internal controls services; consulting services), I would highly recommend Tronconi Segarra & Associates to any college, not-for-profit organization or business that requires such services. They are a cut above.”

    James A. Thor, CPA

    Associate Vice President for Finance and Management/Comptroller, State University of New York College at Buffalo (Buffalo State College)
  •  “I regard Tronconi Segarra & Associates as a trusted advisor for a variety of reasons.”

    “Bryant & Stratton College is one college with 15 campuses, located in four states, which operates in the highly regulated higher education industry. Higher education is extremely regulated because students have access to federal and state grant and loan programs. In order for the College’s students to have access to these programs, the College must demonstrate, through financial and compliance audits, that it is financially responsible and administratively capable. Toward that end, Tronconi Segarra & Associates have performed the College’s audits for the past 10 years. In addition, they prepare the College’s federal, state, and local tax returns.”

    “Tronconi Segarra & Associates are quite proficient at balancing high customer service yet maintaining their independence where necessary. The integrity and professionalism of their people are without question. They are proactive as well as responsive, and their technical competence is unmatched. The College values their commitment and dedication. They appreciate the College’s business through their energy, enthusiasm, and genuine concern for the College. They set the bar very high for themselves when it comes to providing the highest quality of professional services, and they clear it time after time. The College would strongly recommend Tronconi Segarra & Associates’ services to other organizations, especially those in highly regulated industries, where there is significant government funding.”

    Francis J. Felser, CPA, MBA

    President and Chief Executive Officer, Bryant & Stratton College
  • “The rapid growth of our business has resulted in added complexities within our finance area. This prompted the hiring of a controller, but we didn’t believe that a full-time CFO position could be cost-justified. We knew, however, that a CFO skill set would be needed for certain functions such as strategic planning, and mergers and acquisitions work.”

    “Tronconi Segarra & Associates has provided us with the best of both worlds; a CFO skill set when needed, without the price tag of a full-time CFO salary. I would highly recommend this service to growing companies that are not quite ready to commit to a full-time CFO.”

    William Hanes

    Owner & CEO, Hanes Supply, Inc.
  • “Hiring Tronconi Segarra & Associates as our Outsource CFO was one of the best business decisions PCB Group, Inc. has ever made. At the time, our business was expanding at a significant pace. We grew from one primary subsidiary in Western New York to five, spread throughout the US and the world. We needed a CFO to quarterback all of the financial decisions that accompany such rapid growth. Tronconi Segarra & Associates provided a better solution than we could have ever assembled ourselves. Tronconi Segarra & Associates is more than an outsourcing vendor. They are our financial brain trust and an extraordinarily committed business partner.”

    John A. Lally

    Shareholder and Vice President, PCB Group, Inc.
  • “INSTALLS inc., LLC hired Tronconi Segarra & Associates to assist with several state audits, both sales tax and income tax. The level of expertise that we received saved us significant dollars and countless hours of work with the auditor in each of our audits. Without David Werth and Andy Toth, we would not have had the favorable outcomes that we did.

    I highly recommend the tax consulting services of Tronconi Segarra & Associates!”

    Tara Gipp

    Director of Finance, INSTALLS inc., LLC
  • “As a growing company doing business around the world, we wanted a CPA firm that is in tune with our corporate philosophy and understands what is important to us. We found that quality when we selected Tronconi Segarra & Associates to handle our accounting needs, including our acquisition activities, several years ago. Don’t expect them to just scratch the surface; they have a roll-up-your-sleeves, leave-no stones-unturned approach to everything they do. The advice we receive from their Partners and professionals is relevant and practical; and they’re always thinking of ways to give us an edge or a better outcome. We have confidence in them and in their work, which allows us to make sound business decisions that keep our company on track and prosperous. They’re a unique group – down-to-earth and very genuine on one hand, but sharp and sophisticated in their skills on the other. I don’t make recommendations lightly. It means I’m putting my reputation on the line.

    Tronconi Segarra & Associates is one Firm that I have recommended to businesses associates, including some who are also personal friends. That’s how confident I am in them and their work.”

    Mr. Rick Jasiura, CPA, MBA

    Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Specified Air Solutions LLC (formerly Roberts-Gordon LLC) One of the world’s leading infrared and warm air heating systems and equipment manufacturers, proudly headquartered in Buffalo, New York.
  • “We engaged Tronconi Segarra & Associates to complete a review programme for over a dozen of our U.S. holdings last year to help us develop our Financial Assurance programme. Not only was I was extremely pleased with their approach to this project, but our management teams from each company were highly impressed with their on-site performance as well.

    Tronconi Segarra & Associates demonstrated a much-appreciated ability to keep our objectives top-of-mind as they strategically and thoroughly conducted each review. As a result, we received very detailed yet actionable reports that allowed us to implement their recommendations quickly and with minimal disruption to our operations. We believe we received tremendous value from the work that Tronconi Segarra & Associates did, and we would have no hesitation in requesting their services for future financial assurance assignments.”
