When textile executive John McCuiston makes a big decision, he turns to his team at Gilliam Bell Moser for advice. “They’ve always been much more than an accounting firm,” McCuiston said. “I see them almost as an advisory board. They keep me out of trouble.”
McCuiston and his company, Crawford Knitting, have been clients of Gilliam Bell Moser for 40+ years. “Like all businesses, my company has certainly seen its ups and downs over four decades,” McCuiston explained. “But through it all, Gilliam Bell Moser has stuck by me and helped me.”
Vigilant planning has served McCuiston well. “Gilliam Bell Moser works closely with our attorney to make sure everything is set up properly for us,” he said. “They’re always looking down the road to see what our next steps should be, and I appreciate that. They’re also great educators — they keep me informed of regulatory changes that might affect my family or business situation.”
Frequent conversations and meetings keep the lines of communication open. “I’m very comfortable with them,” McCuiston said. “They’re a thoughtful group and I know they’re looking out for my best interests.”
McCuiston has also recommended several other clients to the firm. “I’ll be a Gilliam Bell Moser client for life,” McCuiston said. “They do a tremendous job. I don’t know what I’d do without them.
