Growing Your Firm Through Changing Markets and Industries

Join Dane Boeckermann, CPA and Principal at Boeckermann Grafstrom & Mayer (BGM), along with leaders from other BGM Group companies for an interesting conversation about how the firm has evolved since its founding in 1982.

Do you have an inspiring story to share?

Whether it’s a new approach to growing international business, building your network, a firm re-brand, new change in leadership, succession planning, or an office move that has benefited you in ways you couldn’t have predicted. Perhaps something special you are doing involving working in the local community or an initiative to raise moral and motivate staff, and anything between.

Share your story and your network will grow along with your relationships and your business.
