  • REDW LLC, the leading accounting and consulting firm serving Native American Tribes throughout the United States, is expanding its tribal compensation surveys in 2019 to include gaming and tribal enterprises.

    The firm has successfully conducted the Tribal Government Compensation Survey for nine consecutive years in partnership with the National Native American Human Resources Association (NNAHRA).

    REDW will now take ownership of the Indian Gaming Employee Compensation Survey, which was previously managed by the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA). “NIGA and REDW have a long history of supporting each other’s efforts in the area of tribal compensation surveys, and share a commitment to tribal economic success,” said Jason Giles, Executive Director of NIGA.

    Both surveys gather key data from participating Tribes and their enterprises across the nation and use powerful filtering tools to generate useful reports that can contrast a Tribe’s compensation data against that of other, similar Tribes and enterprises. The combined surveys represent the only tribal compensation data in the country of this breadth and depth.

    “This is one of the most meaningful tools that Tribes can use to remain competitive while attracting and retaining the best talent,” said Alicia Finley, Human Resources Consulting Manager at REDW. “The survey enables decision-making based on current and reliable data, and can save Tribes money in the long run.”

    The more Tribes that participate in the surveys, the better the data. All the data entered into the surveys is accessible only by a participant’s representative, and data specific to any Tribe or enterprise is never displayed in the survey results. An annual subscription enables subscribers to have access to all the reported data, and includes complimentary data input services, an Annual Summary Report, and complimentary consulting time with REDW’s team of HR Consulting professionals.

  • REDW LLC, a Top 200 Accounting Firm and one of the Southwest’s 10 largest CPA and business consulting firms, announced today it is merging in Smith Harrison LLP, a CPA firm based in Las Vegas, Nevada, that specializes in tribal gaming, effective May 1, 2019. The combined firm will operate under the REDW brand.

    As part of the merger, partners Joe H. Smith and Adam H. Smith will join REDW as Senior Consultant and Senior Manager, respectively. They will both continue to work from their current Las Vegas, NV, location, where REDW is considering expanding its operations at a later time.

    Steve Cogan, REDW’s Managing Principal, says: “REDW’s decision to add Joe and Adam to the REDW team is part of its overall strategic plan to continue to expand its offerings and geographic footprint in the Southwest and nationally. The addition of Smith Harrison fits our vision perfectly, as it will augment our reach and capabilities and help tribal gaming organizations succeed in today’s highly competitive market.”

    Smith Harrison LLP was founded in 2011 by Joe Smith. Due to its unique industry expertise and attention to client service, the firm earned a national reputation for being a trusted advisor to tribal casino operations. As the former Director of Audits and Finance at the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) in Washington D.C., and with four decades of casino industry experience, Joe is very well-known throughout Indian Country. Among his accomplishments are establishing and implementing the Class III NIGC Minimum Internal Control Standards (MICS). Adam is also an experienced professional providing accounting, auditing and financial management services to the casino industry and has played a key role in the success of the firm.

    Joe Smith says: “The business needs of Tribes have been expanding over the years, growing in complexity and sophistication. To meet this demand, we’ve been exploring opportunities with a number of firms over the last three years, seeking one that shares our same values and a total commitment to Tribes and their enterprises. And we have found REDW to be the best fit.”

    Adam Smith adds: “I couldn’t be more excited about joining a firm so well recognized in Indian Country, I cannot wait to get to work. In all honesty, no firm can compete with the extensive capabilities and experience of REDW, now enhanced by the addition of Smith Harrison LLP.”

    Corrine Wilson, REDW Principal and National Tribal Practice Leader, says: “REDW is privileged to be an industry leader for Indian Country. An essential part of serving Tribes and their enterprises in the marketplace and expanding our National Tribal Practice is gaming, which is one reason we are so thrilled to welcome Joe and Adam to the team.”
