In 2005, Brad Rauch established his first business Rauch Financial. Not as a typical number-crunching provider, but something more customer-service oriented. He wanted to provide annoyingly great customer service with unmatched personal attention.
Brad’s firm has grown to become a full-service tax, accounting and business advisory service available to individuals and small business owners in all 50 states.
In 2016, Rauch Financial acquired Cloister Tax Service based in Akron, Pa. In late 2017, the companies combined to operate under the new name Cloister Group.
With a focus on personalized service and honest value, Cloister Group has continued to build relationships that serve the unique interests of each of its clients.
