wiegel_logo_2Simply put, Wiegel Tool Works, Inc. would not be where it is at today without the support and guidance from KRD.  Over the past 23 years, KRD has provided Wiegel a wide range of financial services through their many experienced advisors and accountants.  KRD was also the architect for the two family transitions of the business between the generations.  Along with these transitions, KRD has acted as a coach / mentor to many family members coming up in the business.  What also stands out with KRD is not only their dedication to their clients but their exceptional work within their community with many different charities.  They care about their clients and their local communities and display this by their actions.

“I’m not a traditional businessperson,” she says. “KRD has helped educate me. I love how candid David is; he’s extremely bright and he challenges me at the right moments—he’ll ask ‘Did you think about that? Be sure, because it will impact something else.’ He understands my strategy and helps me find balance.” She also speaks highly of KRD’s company culture as a match for her own. KRD, she says, values “relationships and trust.”

The service we have received from KRD has always been extremely professional,” Wilson says. She includes particular praise for KRD Partner David Wasielewski, who has been the primary accountant for MAKE. “He always conducted himself as the consummate professional and I never once had concern that he did not keep his eye on what was best for the business.”
