Mike:
I am sorry that we were unsuccessful in connecting live on Tuesday. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Brad Smith, and I have recently joined Intuit working with Rich Walker and other key impact players across Intuit to strengthen our advocacy and commitment to the accounting profession and its many professionals. I am reaching out to you by way of this e-mail in hopes that we can schedule a 30 minute call to make introductions and briefly discuss ideas and key areas of focus. I understand that this is the busiest time of year, but have also been told by many Intuit executives such as Rich, Tom Allanson and others that you have been quite open to taking the time to assist Intuit, are a tremendous voice of reason and are one of our most impactful and innovative Professional Advisors.

Please let me know if there would be a convenient time next week to conduct this call. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and for what I hope will continue to be a long and productive business partnership.

[Brad is Vice President, Intuit Accountant Relations; Rich is the Director of the Accountant Services Group, which includes the QuickBooks Professional Advisor Program; Tom Allanson is Senior Vice President of Consumer Tax, including TurboTax.]

Intuit is no big impersonal greedy company. Here are some of the many mainly young people, who are working work hard to revolutionize the way we manage our finances. Rich Walker (Professional Advisors), Tim Teichman (development), Andrea Julian (documentation) & Harry Pottol (tech support & best QB book) are due special thanks. We owe them far more than we can ever repay. Now you can make their day by telling them how to do even better.
