Who We Are

At Hull & Knarr, we are passionate in the belief that we exist to help others achieve more.  This belief encompasses our clients, community, partners, and each other.

How do we do help others achieve more?

Collaboration

Accomplishing big goals is easier and more enjoyable when we can lean on each other’s strengths. We never go at it alone, but work together to accomplish common goals.

Excellence

Our duty to each other and our clients is to do more, know more, and be more in pursuit of being the best, holding a standard of excellence in everything we do.

Go the Extra Mile

Always do more than what is asked or anticipated. We don’t go at it to satisfy. We want to wow and will always take the next step to exceed expectations.

Care for Others

In life and business, treat others how you desire to be treated; Humans first.

Our Founder

Working for an accounting firm early in his career, Hull & Knarr founder David M. Hull was tasked with searching for other revenue streams for his employer when he came across the R&D Tax Credit. Growing up in the family electroplating business as a non-degreed engineer, David believed the R&D Tax Credit was an engineering function – not an accounting function – and that engineers would be better served to qualify R&D activities. David made his pitch, but the decision was made to use accountants rather than hire engineers to perform the studies. Because of his conviction, Hull & Knarr was born in 2001 and since then, our chief investigators have been experienced, degreed engineers.

July 11, 2020 marked the passing of a very special member of the Hull & Knarr family, David M. Hull, Founder.

He dedicated his life in service to others and his memory will be cherished: In Memoriam, A Tribute to Hull & Knarr Founder, David M. Hull (1960 – 2020)
