Our Team

Our Team

The Flanders Group is composed of professionals who are eager to meet the ever-changing needs of our client base. Diverse in experience, our staff will provide you with the support and dedication required to help meet your needs.

One of the greatest benefits of utilizing the services of a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is a commitment to the client fiduciary standard of care and to lifelong professional education. This education keeps our staff abreast of the latest changes to tax laws, technology, financial reform, and legislation affecting our clients. A CPA is committed to obtaining a minimum of 80 hours of education during each two-year period. David consistently exceeds this minimum education requirement.

Whether you're planning for retirement or hoping to invest in a new business, you can count on CFA® charterholders to have the depth of training to look beyond today's headlines. Achieving the CFA® designation requires several years of intense study and a dedication to putting clients' needs first.  As a CFA® charterholder, Ryan holds himself to an uncompromising standard of ethics and is required to undertake an annual attestation of conduct.
