Kenneth F. Prager
Kenneth F. Prager, CPA serves individual and business clients with tax, accounting and consulting services. “I listen to my clients and learn what their strengths and weaknesses are, and then tailor my services to help them become successful,” says Prager. He aims to make connections between clients’ business and personal needs, looking to future issues and linking the related concerns of clients’ immediate family. The goal is to craft an integrated accounting perspective that will yield the greatest insight and value over time. Praeger believes that trust is not built on complex formulas and columns of numbers — it’s built on relationships. Outside his accounting work, Prager frequently speaks to MICA graduates.
QUICK TIP: “Take the risk.”
“Ken has played a critical role in advising me on the structure of our accounting systems and day-to-day operation of the business, which has allowed me time to be CEO. His recommendations are well thought out and come from a business perspective. He is one of my closest advisors both from a business and personal standpoint. This was especially important when I bought out a major stockholder of the company. He was able to explain the transaction not only from a business perspective, but also based on how it would financially impact me. Ken is fundamentally and technically one of the best accountants because his advice is grounded in real-world common sense.” – Rick Snellinger, President and CEO, Chambers
