Number of Employees: 4

Specialties: Tax and auditing services for businesses and individuals

Company History: Kleiman explains: “I started the business by myself in 2006. I had been a partner in a larger firm for nearly 15 years, and I realized that I could run a firm on my own, enabling me to focus on my core group of clients. My current employees are three of the best I have had in my 20 or so years as an employer, but it took a while to get the right people in place.”

Secret to To Your Success: “Caring about the services we provide to the clients, as well as communication with the clients.”  

Best Part About Owning and Managing Your Own Business: “Although I am working more hours than I have ever worked in the past, it is a tremendous sense of accomplishment keeping clients content, which enables us to continually grow the firm each year. Most days, I truly look forward to coming to work and servicing my clients.”

Reason for Choosing Executive Suites at the Hippodrome as Your Office Location: “I have some large corporate clients, and I needed to be in a very professional atmosphere and have access to conference rooms that could handle any size meeting,” Kleiman says. “In addition, I needed to be in Midtown.

About choosing Executive Suites office space in NYC as his base of operations, Kleiman continues: “I needed flexibility in terms of signing a lease, because I was very nervous about a long-term commitment. The person who I first met with (Ross) was completely sympathetic and really conveyed to me how flexible Executive Suites was. Specifically, at any time, I could take more space or reduce my space without any penalties, and that was very comforting. Second, I had researched several other companies that were offering similar office arrangements, but none of them felt as professional as Executive Suites. Third, I drive in every day and park by Port Authority, so this location was perfect.”

Describe the Experience of Having an Office in Midtown Manhattan: “This location is absolutely perfect. My largest client is within walking distance of the building, and 99 percent of my other clients are in Midtown as well. I love working in the city.”

Advice to Others Starting Their Own Business: “Make sure you assess your risk properly. If you are giving up your full-time job and/or investing a lot of your personal money, make sure you realistically project your expenses and potential income. Make sure you are passionate about your business. Most mornings I get up without an alarm clock, because I just want to get in and start my work day as early as possible.”

Anything else people should know about you? “As I mentioned above, we pride ourselves on great service and caring about what we do for our clients.”
