Ericksen, Krentel & LaPorte, L.L.P.

In a one-room office in the Maritime building on Carondelet Street, Lec Krentel and Ben Ericksen shared a partners' desk and began what is 45 years later, a thriving 40-person accounting and consulting firm. How does an accounting firm continue to grow and thrive in today's fast-paced and ever-changing business economy? We believe it is due to our focus on quality client service and a commitment to employing people with the highest levels of professionalism and dedication to our clients' needs. We have seen our practice grow, not just in the number of clients or employees, but in the diversification of the services we provide. We have tried to respond to our clients needs by providing valuable services and by developing our firm to stay current with the changes in our own industry as well as those of our clients. It is with great pride that we can review our client lists and see many longtime clients that have grown and evolved with us. Likewise, many of the partners and staff have been with the firm for much of their professional careers - providing a level of continuity in personnel that is unusual in today's business climate. Four and a half decades have passed since Ben and Lec shared a desk and a simple philosophy that if you build a firm dedicated to client service and hire the best people to provide those services, the firm will grow and the clients will benefit. And, while we have seen the firm evolve into an organization capable of keeping pace in an age of burgeoning technology and a global economy, we are steadfast in our belief that it is our people who make us successful.

It is the spirit of our people and the loyalty of our clients that have set us apart for over 40 years. Our commitment to the success of our clients, together with our "not-just-the-numbers" approach is only part of our formula for success. At Ericksen, Krentel & LaPorte, our broad menu of services is second only to the quality of our people.
