About Us

Founded in 1938, Clark Schaefer Hackett (CSH) is a top 100 CPA and advisory firm with more than 400 shareholders and staff and 7 offices throughout Ohio and Kentucky. Our passion is delivering results through remarkable relationships. We offer all the sophisticated services you’d expect from a top tier CPA firm — but it’s our commitment to service that sets us apart. We believe better relationships produce better results, and we train our staff to create remarkable, results-oriented relationships with clients and each other.

Our Culture

CSH culture is driven by our mission to better the lives of our clients, people and communities. We better lives by helping clients achieve and sustain high financial performance, and by maximizing career opportunities for our associates. Bettering the communities where we live and work is equally important. We create opportunities for staff and shareholders to make a difference in their communities each year. Beyond firm-sponsored charitable events, each CSH associate is given 8 hours of paid volunteer time off annually so they can contribute to a cause they are passionate about.


Client Service

Remarkable things happen when you put relationships at the center of your solutions. Because we understand that our relational and technical capabilities are equally important, our brand is built on the promise of a differentiating client experience. Published in 2014, our book entitled The CSH Way, documents our approach to creating remarkable relationships through excellent service. It builds on our mission and firm values by defining the client experience we seek to deliver.
