Katherine L. Silicato, CPA
Kathi Silicato provides superior service to help business owners achieve their financial goals.

A partner in Gunnip & Company's assurance practice, Kathi has been with the firm since 1994. Kathi takes pride in the personal attention she gives to her clients. She is most in her element when providing advice and helping clients figure out how to analyze information differently. “I like the fact that I can help clients run their business better, no matter what their goal is.” Kathi has provided guidance for her clients in a number of areas including:

  • Discovering that a client had unknowingly been out of compliance after reviewing their Employee Benefit Plan. Kathi worked with her client to help avoid significant fines from the Department of Labor.
  • Proactively reaching out and educating clients of new IRS regulations to ensure a smooth audit process with no surprises and clients who are fully prepared.

Kathi also plays a role in quality control for the firm and she is focused on providing the best service possible to help maintain client relationships. “Quality control is such an integral part of practice development, it really contributes to the bigger picture. If the product isn’t good, people won’t stay. A quality product attracts quality people as clients.”

An upshot of her commitment to quality, Kathi was recently nominated by her firm and selected as a Woman to Watch by the Delaware Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Outside of work, Kathi is active in her church and was a Sunday School teacher. She enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter and extended family and is most relaxed when fishing on her boat, or cooking. Kathi and her family live in Delaware.
