The Lumenrock Story

Steven Pipe is globally, one of the most influential advisors to the accounting profession. In his book: The World’s Most Inspiring Accountants, he specifically refers to LUMENROCK as one of the world’s most inspiring accounting firms.

Steven quotes Pieter Esterhuizen the founder of LUMENROCK “The dramatic increase in our size has been due to both organic growth and mergers. But our caring culture has undoubtedly been a key ingredient in our success. Because of it we have an incredibly loyal team, who really care about delivering the five-star service that gives us a great reputation and attracts a lot of new clients. In addition, their willingness to always go the extra mile for us and our clients has also allowed us to deal with the inevitable stresses and strains on our resources, systems and structure that have been caused by our rapid growth.” Pieter also stressed that, “it is important to note that our other employees have also embraced this culture of loyalty, five-star service and caring, and that my co-directors also play a very large part in this success story.”
