Falls Church, VA – Jim Klote, President and CEO of Ward, Dreshman & Reinhardt, Inc. and Erin West, Vice President of Operations, were recently interviewed by Amy Armstrong for an article in The Suit magazine. The magazine, based in New York, NY, evaluates business owners and professionals and strives to provide an insight into the success of their organizations.

The article, “Personal Touch Fuels Success,” tells a brief history of Ward, Dreshman, & Reinhardt, Inc., starting with its founder, Charles Sumner Ward. It highlights the specific face-to-face method of fundraising that made WD&R, a company founded over 100 years ago, successful in fundraising for nonprofit organizations.

Jim Klote, President of Ward, Dreshman & Reinhardt since 1996, stated, “I began my career with WD&R in 1987 as a field consultant. Whenever the firm is recognized as a leader in our industry it gives me a great sense of satisfaction. I not only appreciate all the clients we have partnered with in the last 26 years since I have been around, but for the last 100 years the firm has been around. I am grateful and thankful for this piece in the Suit Magazine.”

In April 2013, The Suit magazine also featured WD&R’s sister company, James D. Klote & Associates, in an article recognizing the firm for its exceptional service to churches.
