Our Philosophy - whiteboard

“We are driven and united by a relentless pursuit of the truth. It takes courage and conviction to do the right thing today, to lay the foundations for future generations; to ask the tough questions and go above and beyond for the greater good.” 

— Tyler Kimura
Partner, Spire

Spire’s Guiding Values

Underpinning the firm’s vision is a set of guiding values or principles. At Spire, our values represent a great deal more than words on paper or a computer screen; they are a beacon of behavior, imperatives to guide what we do and how we do it.

Humility: an innate humility and kindness is a non-negotiable expectation of ourselves and our partners, in all of the interactions we have with others—both in and out of the workplace.

Altruism: a commitment and deep-seated responsibility to help community is at the core of what Spire represents. And it serves as the driving principle behind why we exist as a company.

Precision: as a diverse group of professionals spanning forensic accounting to tax law and more, our DNA is rooted in precision; a trait that has formed our approach to all client engagements and challenges. 

Courage: Spire was the first accounting firm in Hawai‘i to expand its services offering, to solve challenges through a lens of organizational integration. While the path less traveled presents many challenges along the way, we believe that bravery is essential to make a meaningful difference in the world.

An Open-Minded Curiosity:
Open-mindedness and curiosity are mutually dependent. We are inspired by an innate desire to discover, learn, and evolve. This in turn enables us to find new solutions to old problems. 

Agility:
the strategic imperative for organizations to be nimble, to never lose sight of what’s happening around them, is greater than ever. Spire’s diverse composition of talent and capabilities, coupled with it being light on its feet due to its boutique size and flexible culture, enables us to help steer companies and communities through times of change and uncertainty.

Spire Philosophy
Our commitment toward project success is unmatched as, we live with our results.
