The month of May 2012 marks 20 years since Michael Daszkal, CPA, and Jeff Bolton, CPA, tossed a coin in the kitchen of the Bolton household to decide if the new accounting firm they were going to create would be named “Daszkal Bolton” or “Bolton Daszkal”.
Either way the name of the firm has become synonymous over the years with leadership in the accounting profession and philanthropy in the community. With three locations: Boca Raton, Jupiter, and Fort Lauderdale, clients are sprinkled down throughout Palm Beach County, Broward, Miami-Dade and up to Martin County. The firm has grown to over 110 employees, and has been voted one of the “Best Accounting Firms To Work For” by Accounting Today four years in a row, a national honor. Founded in 1992, as an army of two, the first employee came along a year later. Daszkal Bolton was recently named one of the Fastest Growing Accounting Firms by IPA. The company headquarters has moved several times, but now is anchored on Boca Raton Boulevard in Boca Raton, Florida, and services clients across the nation.
According to Jeff Bolton, his memories of 1992 include:
– the Dow was about 3,000
– a gallon of gas costs $1.05
– Princess Diana and Prince Charles were just getting divorced
– George Bush was ousted by Bill Clinton, the newly elected President
– Hurricane Andrew hit Florida
– Whitney Houston starred in the movie “The Body Guard”
– The popular music was – “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred, and “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot
– The popular TV Shows were – “Roseanne” and “Home Improvement”
– In Sports – the Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series, and Gino Toretta won the Heisman Trophy
– And the Internet, Email, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Ebay, Twitter, YouTube, website, .com or dot anything, were not common words or didn’t exist at all!!!
20 years later, under the stewardship of Michael Daszkal, Jeff Bolton, Timothy Devlin, and Scott Walters, Daszkal Bolton has been consistently ranked as one of the top 25 accounting firms in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal. As Daszkal Bolton has expanded its Florida footprint, it has grown into an award winning firm with award winning clients and award winning employees!
Daszkal Bolton has always been known for tax planning and compliance, audit, and accounting services, but over the last few years has widened its bandwidth and now focuses on niche practice areas of expertise in International Tax, Technology, and Healthcare in addition to its traditional accounting verticals. Reflecting the respect of their peers in the accounting community, Firm Partners and Associates have been elected to serve in key leadership positions such as the South Florida Manufacturers Association, the South Florida Technology Association, the Florida Atlantic Research and Development Authority, Florida Atlantic University, the Greater Boca Raton Chamber, Leadership Broward, the YMCA, The Haven, The American Association of Caregiving Youth, the Bone Marrow Foundation, The Alzheimer’s Foundation, AGN International, The Estate Planning Council, and the AICPA and FICPA, just to name a few!
“Balancing commitment to excellence in client service, with a strong belief in community service — as well as providing for the well being of our associates, has always been at the heart of our Firm’s key values,” reminds Michael Daszkal.
To help celebrate its 20 years in business the firm sponsored the Military Appreciation Pavilion at the Honda Classic this March, and served over 4000 meals to U.S. Veterans.
