How The Giersch Group Started

The story of the Giersch Group goes back to 2004 when Peter Giersch started Cathedral Consulting Group in his basement in a small suburb north of Milwaukee, WI.

As Peter was the only employee at the time people often asked, “Where’s the ‘group’?” Peter would reply, “Well, I have 5 kids!” Little did he know that the first of those five would be joining the firm 12 years later. Another early member of the group was Tom Grieve, who was Cathedral Consulting Group’s first employee as a college intern. He is now a Partner and Director of The Giersch Group.

Over the next decade, Cathedral Consulting Group grew into a multimillion-dollar, multi-national firm under the leadership of Peter’s then-partner and CEO of Cathedral Consulting, Phil Clements. After Clements’ passing in 2015, Peter withdrew from the firm he co-founded and started the Giersch Group to carry on the tradition of excellence in consulting for small businesses and grassroots nonprofits. The Giersch Group now has a second location in Brookfield allowing us to serve the small enterprise throughout the greater Milwaukee metropolitan area.

Countless studies show that there is no correlation between money and happiness; those who are wealthy are not necessarily happier than those who have less money, and vice versa. According to the Washington Post, once people surpass the level of poverty, money does not play a great role in day-to-day happiness. Yes, money can buy goods and services that bring temporary enjoyment, but these things do not directly address, let alone fix, the troubles people experience in their daily lives. 

If money only provides temporary enjoyment, then what’s the key to happiness? According to a study at University of California Berkeley, having higher quality of relationships has a greater impact on one’s quality of life and their overall happiness. By focusing on the well-being of others, people who are compassionate, generous, and generally cooperative have greater relationships between their colleagues, clients, family, and friends.

The Giersch Group logo represents the importance of balancing relationships and maintaining financial health. Our logo is a graphic representation of the fact that relationships are more important than money, while acknowledging that money gets involved in every relationship at some point, especially for a business owner. Getting your financials sorted out will improve relationships and make you happier.

When people come to the Giersch Group from another bookkeeping firm, we often hear that the client is leaving because of lack of communication. At the Giersch Group, we see communication as a vital aspect to understanding your books. To improve communication with our clients, we send out weekly updates. These updates help you understand what we are doing to fulfill your bookkeeping needs, allowing you to become familiar with the accounting process and, ultimately, know your company’s financial position.

The Giersch Group weekly updates include a brief review of what our associates have accomplished over the week and what we will work on in the future, as well as a description of other services we are providing for your company. We also include a reminder of our next scheduled meeting and your current billing status.

Overall, the weekly updates are here to keep you up to date on your financials and give you a clear picture of how your bookkeeping needs are being satisfied. Although we are an outsourced service provider, we see the success of our work in the level of collaboration we have with our clients. We want to partner with you to compile a clear and concise representation of your financial position.

Will your business beat the odds?

Your ideas can be brilliant, the market can be there for your services, but an unhappy relationship with numbers ruins everything.
