Widmer Roel Birthday

Widmer Roel PC had two milestone birthdays in 2013! We celebrated our 40th year in business, starting in Fargo, ND, and we also celebrated our 10th year with an office in Bismarck, ND. The local Chambers of Commerce held ribbon cuttings in our honor for the milestones.

The Firm was started by Harris Widmer in August of 1973, with 6 clients. Later that year, in November, Bob Roel, started a firm that shared an office with Harris. From there, Widmer Roel has grown to nearly 50 people and 3 offices. Today we service clients ranging from the individual and sole proprietor to publicly traded companies. Their philosophy of providing premium services such as tax and financial planning and business advisory services that creates value for our clients, coupled with traditional accounting and tax services, continues today.

Our mission statement, “We are committed to the success of our clients, our team members, our profession and our community,” is the foundation of our operating style and way of doing business.

Over the years we have developed our” Ten Firm Values For Success”, below, which are the tenets of delivering on our mission statement.

  1. As a firm, our clients are the number one priority.
  2. As individuals, our families are the number one priority.
  3. Finding balance in our priorities is our number one challenge.
  4. As a firm and as individuals, we must give back to our profession and our community.
  5. The reputation of the firm should never be jeopardized.
  6. The firm is constantly trying to improve, and looks to all team members for ideas.
  7. A professional working environment must be maintained while recognizing the importance of a warm smile and good laugh.
  8. All team members will be properly trained, equipped, supervised and challenged.
  9. Mistakes are accepted as part of the learning process. What we cannot accept is “not trying”.
  10. All team members will be respected and appreciated for their contributions to the firm.

These values unify our effort, as a team, in providing awesome service to our clients. We thank our many clients and friends over the last 40 years and look forward to the future.
