What Our Clients Say

City Lights Brewing

Thanks to Chortek for their guidance and support.  Who ever thought that a professional services CPA and strategic business advisory partner would be such an important ingredient in world-class beer?

Chortek’s team helped us seamlessly convert our existing board room into a full-featured Zoom Room.  We already liked using Zoom on all our individual devices, but now we can integrate a group of people into meetings with HD video and sound as well as instantly share our screens, wirelessly from all our devices.  We plan to deploy Zoom Room technology to our suburban branch office, as well.

The support that we receive from Chortek is unparalleled. Any time there is a problem – from IT to accounting – they make sure to keep our business moving in the right direction. We consider them a part of our team and are very glad that they are.

We have been working with Chortek for almost a decade. When it comes to IT, the most important thing for us is trust. Everyone at Chortek is a true professional, and they are certainly extremely knowledgeable, but what I value most is the peace of mind that comes from knowing our network and data is safe and secure in their capable hands.

Chortek tax advisors uncovered a sizable credit we were not taking advantage of. Having a partner on our team with this kind of ability puts us in a great position to do what we do best, knowing our tax affairs are in the best of hands.

Dave Nadolski, Controller, Macromatic Industrial Controls
Crossmark Graphics

Chortek’s cybersecurity assessment helped me respond to inquiries from my customers about what Crossmark Graphics is doing to keep their data safe. It helped me respond professionally to their questions and give me a comprehensive overview of our cyber risk.

Their follow through is spectacular. It’s usually one call. They never say no. It doesn’t make a difference what type of question we have, they are going to find out the answer for us. That’s what makes them such a great partner. They have a vast amount of resources behind their company – one-stop shopping.

David Spence, Rundle-Spence
Mandel Group Logo

Chortek has made a positive difference to the Mandel Group. Listening through our questions and really looking for a solution rather than putting a band aid on things.

Sherry Meyers Thompson, Controller, Mandel Group

We had inventory coding issues requiring updates going back three years. Ann was able to provide detailed step-by-step instructions on how to address the issue. She exceeded my expectations by how thorough and understandable she made the process. She was responsive, professional, friendly, and always found a solution to any question.

Rachel Lindstrom, Accounting Department, Wisconsin Lifting Specialists, Inc.
Geneva Supply Logo

Geneva Supply has grown 50% every year in revenue and employees. With this growth, we needed to find a more robust accounting firm. Chortek has an expert in every area of our business, and because they have clients and experience in our industry already, they don’t have to re-create the wheel to serve our needs. Chortek proactively identifies opportunities for our business, and explains everything in terms a layman can understand. I have one-on-one relationships with everyone I work with. I can see us growing ten times over and the firm would still have the resources to handle our business.

Mark Becker, Co-Founder and COO; 40 Under 40 Recipient, Geneva Supply
Atlas Gaskets Logo

Chortek understands the manufacturing industry inside and out. At a glance, Scott was able to identify opportunities I didn’t even know were available, and offer thorough advice on how to best continue growing my business. Everyone here sees Chortek as part of the Atlas team, a close relationship I wouldn’t feel if I was working with a larger firm. I know I can call on Chortek whenever I have a question, and they’ll answer me in upfront, easy-to-understand terms. Chortek has also put me in front of other business owners I wouldn’t normally meet through networking events. Talk about added value!

Eric Spacek, Owner, Atlas Gaskets

Chortek has helped us with accounting software and NET services for 12-13 years now. Because they handle different sides of our business, they are able to tackle complicated problems quickly and efficiently. Chortek’s availability is one of the best things about working with the team. If something goes wrong, you want to be able to reach someone immediately. I can get a response from the NET team during work hours or weekends on a critical issue, oftentimes in minutes, and get everything back up and running.

If I had to describe Chortek in one word, it would be trust. We were experiencing issues and inconsistency with our backup system, our firewall, and our network in general. Chortek came to us with a simple, straightforward proposal, and the follow-up and communication we have received has been unbelievable.

We transferred from QuickBooks Desktop to Online in January 2019. The switch has been a phenomenal business decision. Chortek’s recommendations have been spot-on, and the firm isn’t afraid to try new things or bring cutting-edge ideas to their clients. Everyone we work with at Chortek is professional and has great follow-through, and I don’t anticipate that changing in the future.
Michelle Grau, Vice President, Professional Construction, Inc.
Kenosha Metal Products

Chortek worked quickly to assist us in getting the Paycheck Protection Program loan in place. We really appreciate Chortek’s help, and would not have been prepared without it.

Shari Andersen, Office Manager, Kenosha Metal Products

You can get a good suite of services from Chortek, and we have used several of them over the years. After making the switch from a larger firm, we feel good about the personalized attention we get, and the range of skills of our Chortek team. We’re a bit complicated especially with our many tax returns, and we have some unique nuances as a company, but nothing has ever flustered Chortek.

Mike Harris, CEO, Patina Solutions
Quest CE Logo

Since Quest CE began in 2005, we have partnered with 4 or 5 different accounting firms. Finding Chortek was like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. First, we started with a firm that was too big, went to another that was too small, and finally found Chortek that fit us just right. The relationship we’ve built and the responsiveness we get from everyone at Chortek has been unmatched.

Linda Mieth Krenke, President and CEO, Quest CE
JD Laser Inc. Logo

We’ve worked with Chortek for several years for accounting and tax services and they are great to work with. It feels like you have a “partner” rather than working with an outside consultant.

Michelle Cordeiro, JD Laser Inc.

We really appreciate the relationship we have with Chortek.  They always treat us like we are a priority customer, and that’s important to us. Everyone is very professional, respectful, and friendly. I’ve been in manufacturing a long time and know a lot about finances, but I’m not an accountant. They do a great job of taking the time to explain everything to me in terms that I can understand. They are just wonderful people to work with.

Tom Phillips, President, ETW Inc.
Speedy Metals Logo

Having an accounting firm that’s familiar with our ERP system has made a big difference. We brought Chortek in to fix some implementation issues with Acumatica, and now they are helping us in every aspect of our business. They have become a partner we can go to when we run into an issue. We have a direct contact who is willing to take the reins and figure it out, and if he doesn’t have an answer, he knows who to find and track down. Having that partnership has been the biggest surprise from working with Chortek.
