EGP, PLLC opened its doors in 1981 in North Little Rock, Arkansas and has since grown to four offices, including Heber Springs and Bryant. The firm's growth is due in part to our ability to attract highly talented associates. EGP believes it must attract the brightest associates to provide the best value-added services to its clientele. Bruce Engstrom, Founding Partner, credits this growth to the firm's philosophy: We work with people, not just numbers. This philosophy derives from a belief that the commitment to our clients and to our associates of EGP is top priority.
The primary reason that clients cite for changing accountants is lack of guidance from their existing firm. Consulting with a client is not a single occurrence; it's a dynamic process that changes with the client's needs. The experts at EGP understand that the firm's true value lies in solving problems for you and being proactive rather than reactive when addressing challenges and opportunities.
As CPAs and Accountants, we are trained to be technical problem-solvers. Clients can be burdened with weighty issues, and they look to us for expertise in finding the best solutions. This can be a very difficult and emotional process for our clients, and it is often necessary for an advisor to help defuse a situation and provide an objective view of the entire picture before offering solutions to what may be wide-ranging issues. We must place ourselves in our client's shoes and handle the situation as if it were our own.
The Firm's management provides diverse leadership styles while staying true to the premise on which EGP was founded. In order to achieve success, we must invest in our people. Our new firm mantra - Clients + Partners + Associates = Solutions (CPAS), Working Together, Finding Solutions. Each of these dynamics relies on the other in order to achieve the most successful result for all. EGP, PLLC adopted a cultural model that is never centered on hierarchy or politics - it's not who we are. – Instead, it is grounded on a philosophy of what matters most for health, growth, and teamwork.
