We serve a range of clients from Fortune 500 corporations to privately held companies in numerous industries around the world. Our clients and their advisors rely on our premier expertise, deep industry knowledge, and unparalleled responsiveness on complex financial matters.

When Craige Stout left Price Waterhouse to start a new firm, he focused on delivering exceptional work and building lasting relationships.  The culture at SRR reflects Craige’s commitment to creating a platform where positive team attitude, accountability, commitment, entrepreneurialism, and relationship focus are our core values.  We extend that approach beyond the firm, as we volunteer our time, talent, and resources to positively impact the communities in which we do business.

SRR has been recognized numerous times as one of the best and brightest companies to work for and one of the fastest growing private companies.  Our professionals have received various awards and are often called upon to share their expertise and experience at national conferences, industry forums, and on standards setting bodies.

Our technical experts speak at a variety of events, host educational webinars, and author thoughtful and timely articles that are included in our semi-annual print publication the SRR Journal.  To receive a copy of the SRR Journal, please send us a subscription request. 

We believe that the people that ride up and down the elevators everyday are our greatest assets and we work hard to keep our employees engaged, encourage them to grow, and support them in their interests and aspirations so SRR can continue to successfully expand.  We attract exceptional people that do exceptional things.

If SRR sounds like the right place for you to grow and succeed in your career, we invite you to learn more about joining our firm.  We are always interested in expanding the capabilities, experience, expertise, and diversity of our team.

Our mission is to help our clients achieve their objectives by providing perspective, identifying opportunities, and resolving complex issues while maintaining our core values and entrepreneurial roots. We look forward to developing a relationship with you.
