Bonded by our purpose-driven mission to help build a brighter future for the companies and communities we serve; we have a deep sense of responsibility for the efforts that materially address climate change and its increasing effects on our environment, economy, and society. Climate change is a defining challenge of our times, and we especially feel an obligation to Hawai‘i with our long heritage in the island state—the most isolated population center in the world.
The work we are embarking on is through direct engagement and support for actions that have positive impacts on the future sustainability of our environment and thriving, equitable societies. Our strength as problem-solvers, uniquely positions our team in active pursuit of innovative solutions and in joining the community of solvers to advance real change.
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.

Change is inevitable in today's economy. Whether that's market dynamics, technological disruption or advancement, mergers and/or acquisitions, organizational change management will always be necessary because it deals with a single fact: how people adjust to change.

Spire adopts a rigorous approach to its accounting practice areas. Our highly-trained project teams are well-equipped with experienced managers and support staff. We ensure that our people work across multiple project types, which broadens their understanding, and exposes them to different types of organizations.

We understand what we're asking for and why. Our engagement teams are staffed with experienced professionals who know how to drive the process. What now separates one audit firm from another is not rooted in traditional CPA expertise that provides technical textbook answers. Rather, expertise necessitates context. In today’s world, auditors need to understand the operating environments of the auditees' businesses, to balance and integrate technical textbook requirements with real-world business implications.
