Two qualities that describe Kyle Neeld are caring and compassionate. As a Managing Director and Co-Chair of the Nonprofit and Human Services Group, Kyle recognizes that his clients may have a tight budget, but a price tag doesn’t determine the quality of service. Much like Warren Buffet, Kyle emphasizes that “price is what you pay, value is what you get.” His clients will always receive outstanding quality services that they find valuable. Kyle is prepared to advise his clients on Yellow Book requirements and Uniform Guidance, nonprofit tax reporting, cost analyses, compliance oversight, and employee benefit plan audits. He also specializes in audit program design and implementation, risk assessment, and internal control structures.
Additionally, Kyle performs arbitrage rebate and verification agent calculations and multi-state charitable registration filings. Not only does Kyle perform these services, but he informs his clients of how the changes affect them and what to do in the future.
Kyle helps educate his clients and prospective clients by regularly speaking at conferences, such as the New Jersey Association of Mental Health & Addiction Agencies, Inc., the New Jersey Association of Community Providers and seminars hosted by Mercadien, educating organizations on topics such as Fee for Service transitions, Medicaid billing, accounting standard updates, and other industry trends.
In addition to educating his clients, connecting with clients is important to Kyle. He knows that a mission-driven organization needs someone who can understand their end goal and the best practices to run a successful organization. He ensures that he is available to his clients, making an effort to visit his clients and talk to them face-to-face, discussing any potential issues and tackling them head on.
Kyle started at Mercadien immediately after graduating Rider University, but he didn’t always work with nonprofits. Interested in finance, Kyle started with the firm’s Long-term Care group performing financial and market feasibility studies.
Personal Fact: Kyle’s caring nature extends into his home life. He loves spending time with his wife and two kids, and coaches both of his kids’ baseball and soccer teams. He also loves doing yardwork to unwind.
