Corporate Philosophy

The principals of Booth, Ern, Straughan & Hiott, Inc. (BESH) all had the benefit of positive mentoring as they learned and perfected their trade.  That same leadership and mentoring is offered to employees of BESH.  A stronger, more cohesive bond is created among employees in the workplace by the sharing of knowledge and experiences.  At BESH, we strive for the improvement of all employees, encouraging attendance at Conferences and Seminars, as well as stressing the importance of continuing education in our fast-paced world.  BESH maintains a family atmosphere, and employees are given the flexibility to balance the demands of their personal lives with their professional lives, stressing the importance of both in creating a well balanced and productive employee.  The benefactor of our productive employees are our Clients!  BESH offers unparalleled experience and commitment to our Clients, with whom we seek to establish long-term mutually beneficial relationships.
