Local buys longtime Vail Valley accounting practice
Cara Turner of Turner & Associates, Inc. recently acquired Robert C. Kenney, PC, Certified Public Accountants, a tax and accounting practice located in the Vail Daily Building in Eagle-Vail, Colorado. Kenney had his CPA practice in the Vail Valley for more than 25 years.”I am very happy that Cara has purchased my practice,” Kenney said. “Many of my clients have been with me since the early ’80’s and I really feel good that a person of Cara’s caliber has taken over the practice with my existing team still in place. With her background and expertise, I think she will actually elevate the level of service the clients are receiving.” Turner has lived Vail Valley for six years and has 13 years of experience in tax, accounting, and business advisory services.”I have always intended to manage my own business and Bob’s practice presented the perfect opportunity for me,” Turner said. “He has a great staff and has built a wonderful practice over the years. I am proud to have the opportunity to continue providing tax and accounting services to his customer base as well new clients in the valley.”Turner graduated from the University of Iowa’s Accounting program in 1996 and received her CPA that year. After graduation, she moved to Denver and earned her Masters of Taxation degree from the University of Denver and began working for KPMG (Peat Marwick) LLP in Denver. In 2003, Turner and her husband Steve moved to Avon where she joined a local accounting firm. “I enjoyed my time with KPMG and felt it provided an invaluable learning experience. However, many of the clients I worked with at KPMG were large international companies. I missed working in a smaller community. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed working and becoming involved with the Vail Valley community and the businesses that serve it.”Turner and Associates, Inc. has retained all of Robert C. Kenney PC’s staff including Jennifer Boggs, CPA and Charlene Dunlap. Boggs has worked with Kenney and his clients for 16 years, specializing in tax services to small businesses and individuals. Dunlap had been worked for Kenney two years and provides tax preparation, payroll, and accounting services to many local businesses. For more information, call 970-949-1015.
