Summer 2019 Spotlight: R. Dennis Vogt, CPA

In honor of Alloy Silverstein’s 60th Anniversary, our Alloy spotlight this quarter is on Shareholder R. Dennis Vogt, CPA.

“It was just yesterday when I started,” laughs Dennis, who joined Alloy Silverstein in 1974 right out of college and was promoted to partner in 1985.

Dennis directs the firm’s litigation support, business valuation and retirement planning groups. He is also administrator and director of
Continuing Professional Education (CPE), ensuring that all Alloy Silverstein employees meet CPE requirements for their licenses. In addition to  providing general accounting and tax services to the firm’s clients, his areas of special interest include construction and real estate, as well as individual tax preparation and retirement
planning advice.

Why accounting? The proud Villanova graduate started college as an engineering major but soon learned that business was a better fit for his interests and math skills. He graduated with a B.S. in business administration and an appreciation for the precision and guiding principles of accounting. He especially values the human side. “I enjoy the interaction with clients, the knowledge that I’m helping them, and the long-term relationships I’ve built over 45 years.”

Dennis is a licensed CPA in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, a member of the American Institute of CPAs, and both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Societies of CPAs.

Active on several boards throughout his career, he is currently chairman of the finance committee of the Girl Scouts of Central and Southern New Jersey.

Dennis keeps up with and spreads the news about his three grandchildren: Cameron and Presley, just beginning primary school in Las Vegas, and Whitney, born this past October in Cherry Hill. He also has a soft spot for dogs and can be seen regularly walking his good friend Ted, a Shih Tzu. The Camden County native and self-proclaimed ‘hometown guy’ is an avid fan of the Phillies, the Eagles and Wildcats Basketball, and as often as possible enjoys a round of golf with his business and longtime friends.
