Accountants Working Together
Listen to our exciting conversation with Allen Sloan who is the founder and managing partner of The Sloan Group.
Allen started his practice in the basement of his family home with only a handful of clients and has grown it into a multi-partner office with about 30,000 square feet of office space.
Sloan group has created an interesting business model for entrepreneurial accountants to work together. It all started when they ended up renting an office that was a lot bigger than they needed at the time.
They developed the “Sloan Associate Program” which offers those with an entrepreneurial spirit the freedom to grow a client base, combined with the competitive edge of being linked to a highly reputable firm. The concept is that an individual is at a particular stage in their career where they may be seeking independence. Sloan Partners encourages this person’s desire to be their own boss and practice in their own accounting style. They also get the advantage of being a part of an established organization with support services typically only available at a large accounting firm.
