CPAs specialize in tribal government

Tribal focus underlies firm’s missionEve, a Great Falls native, set out to gain a national reputation by excelling in the tribal government specialty niche of accounting.

Today, the firm works with tribal gaming, governments, colleges, housing authorities and other tribal-owned enterprises in 24 or 25 states.

It is doubling revenue volume every three years and now stands at $11 million. And it’s on target to do $100 million in business by 2016.

“We have a narrow focus because it makes your life a lot easier,” Eve said. “You can become very good in that niche and very knowledgeable about it.”

Few others target such a market. There are some much-smaller firms in the tribal field and some “super-regional” firms with divisions handling tribal matters, Eve said, but no others in their size range has a tribal focus.
