The business of the month for June is Kerry L. Shackelford, CPA LLC. Kerry specializes in providing service organization control reports to clients. These reports are known in the industry as SOC reports and they are the deliverable of a “SOC audit.” This particularly distinguishes Kerry since, although he is a CPA, he does not provide the services most people attribute to the profession, like taxes, accounting or financial audits.
The September Business of the Month is Mountain Home Entertainment. Mountain Home Entertainment is a long-established mountain area business, and that’s intentional. When Bill Thompson founded his company in 1985, he thought the mountain environment was a thriving community that required commitment from its business owners, showing up and completing the job amidst the rugged terrain, in all seasons. “We don’t want to be a fly-by-night business. I picked a tough environment and made the decision to stay—followed an educational process along with the product. This is our underlying mission.”
“From the little blue building downtown to the people who opened its doors, Zuni Signs is an iconic Evergreen business. Todd Benbow became its latest owner in 2016, and his main goal is preserving that history and what it means to be a local business in Evergreen.”
The Business of the Month from the November edition is Rising Graphics + Printing.
In a digital age, it is nice to know that tangible things will stand the test of time. “When the digital thing exploded, everyone was predicting the demise of printing, but I think people are coming back to wanting something they can hold in their hand.” So says Shelly Houston, who co-owns and operates Rising Graphics with her husband, Russ Houston. The two have been meeting the design and printing needs of the mountain communities for more than 15 years.
