5 PARTNERS, OVER 150 YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERENCE.

We are committed to paving the way to success for our clients, our staff, and our communities.
Founded in 1995 by Jayne Kern and Bruce Thompson, Kern & Thompson was founded on the simple premise of providing quality accounting and tax services to its clients in and around the Portland metro area. Today, Kern Thompson has successfully grown to include 5 partners and 15 experenced professionals uniquely positioned to offer quality audit, accounting, and tax services to clients throughout the greater state of Oregon.

At Kern Thompson, we share a genuine passion for our clients and strive to provide lasting value with every engagement. We care about our people and encourage them to achieve their career goals through a balanced work-life environment. We are involved in our community and invest in it through a broad and diverse range of interests of our staff and partners.

Our commitment to our staff shows in our low turnover and our ability to consistently employ professionals familiar with your organization; enabling them to work efficiently and provide real value to each client engagement.

As a firm that is committed to fair trade in employment practices, we believe in providing a reasonable work-life balance for our employees, our most important asset. We will not perpetually under-staff during slower times, then demand unacceptable amounts of overtime during peak seasons. We hope our clients place substantial weight on this factor, and select business partners that share these values.

Our goal is to always be available and responsive to our client’s needs and provide them with continuity of staff from year to year.

Our clients, our people, our firm. That’s our passion.
