Mr. Quail, a graduate from Seton Hall University, entered the accounting profession in 1976 when he was recruited by a leading tri-state public accounting firm through his University's Accounting Internship Program, a program only offered to students of high achievement. By the end of his tenure with the firm, he supervised the tax, accounting and auditing services for a diversified group of companies, in which the average size in sales for each client is as high as 30 million.
In 1980, Mr. Quail went into private accounting. In a short period became the company's top financial executive managing a team of fifteen for a New Jersey based real estate firm with subsidiaries in multi-unit housing, title and homeowner's insurance and aviation ownership. He was a key officer in developing and executing a plan to take the public company private, then to eventually sell off its assets in a downsizing program. This lead to the establishment of a public accounting practice. Bernard developed this practice from the ground up without purchasing any existing accounts.
In 1989 Mr. Quail's public accounting practice, Bernard W. Quail, Jr., P.A., C.P.A.(BWQ) became a full time endeavor.
