Cindy Gomerdinger - Partner

cindy@gomerdingercpas.com Phone: 720.488.1926 ext. 104 Kansas State University
CPA, CGMA

Just as all attorneys are not alike, CPAs have different scopes and specialties. Typically, a CPA gets categorized as a tax or audit specialist, but some CPAs excel beyond these traditional boundaries.

Cindy Gomerdinger is one such CPA. Besides traditional tax preparation and accounting, Cindy offers extensive business planning and management advisory services.

“Independently, we can provide services equivalent to those of a Chief Financial Officer for firms that do not have one. We also work with companies that employ a controller. One major need with companies looking to go to the next level is the ability to conduct high-level analysis, the type of analysis that can make or break a company’s future. Our involvement is tailored to the client’s short and long range needs, growth plans and, of course, budget.

Cindy is well-suited for the challenge. She started in the auditing area, then supervised both operations and the financial department for a California based company. This gave her the well-rounded experience necessary to recommend strategies that would serve the best overall long-term needs of the company. Cindy's background, coupled with a comprehensive network of colleagues in banking, law, insurance and management consulting, affords clients the opportunity to get exactly what they need, when they need it. The scope of services available is able to scale with growing client’ requirements.

Cindy also communicates her company’s limitations. “If a company’s needs go beyond our core competencies, we’ll advise them of more suitable alternatives. “We would rather make a long-term friend than a short-term sale.”

    Co-author of the Denver Business Journals “Law and Ledger” column, Cindy has provided expert advice on many topics, including:

  • Business purchase pitfalls to avoid
  • Sound financing plan for expansion
  • Pros/cons-contractors vs. employees
  • Spotting signs of business trouble
  • Planning for current year taxes
  • Employee retirement plan selection
  • Pros/cons-LLC vs. “S” Corp
  • Next generation business transition
  • Accounting tips to help secure a loan

Cindy's background underscores her commitment to be a leader in the Certified Public Accounting profession, as well as the business community: -- Financial and tax service specialist to closely held businesses since 1987 -- Experienced in retailing, wholesaling, construction, manufacturing, professional services, not for profits -- President, Past Treasurer, Greenwood Village Chamber of Commerce -- CPA certificate, California, 1991 -- CPA certificate, Colorado, 1993 -- Bachelor’s Degree, Accounting, Kansas State University, 1987
