Donald N. Hoffman
Donald N. Hoffman works with clients through the many phases of building and managing a business. “I see all of these phases as equally important and requiring their own particular needs and attention,” he says. “For example, I have helped clients transition through three different generations of leadership in their businesses. I also help clients grow their businesses early on through mentoring and introductions to my contacts in the business community.” Hertzbach & Company, P.A. has formalized training programs for new employees, but Hoffman also likes to encourage them to attend networking events, often alongside him. “I see it as an opportunity to mentor, make introductions and create future leaders for our firm,” he says.
QUICK TIP: “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
“I met Don at several SmartCEO occasions and awards over the past few years. I was previously engaged with another accounting firm but was reintroduced to him through a banking relationship. He graciously met with me on several occasions and offered his time, his ear and advice without asking for any engagement. I was also thinking of expanding my service offering and needed legal advice. Again, he offered his time and included an attorney who gave us her time. … I have since switched accounting firms and am very pleased. Don simply has my interest in mind and is honest, sincere and authentic.” – Tracy Balazs, CEO, FSR
