Meet Our Founder
I love solving problems, working in small teams that get things done, and making life easier for others. Someday I hope to have time to travel with my family, but for now, it's all about solving the world's tax problems.
Kurt is the founder and President of Rocket Relief, Inc. Prior to Rocket Relief, Kurt worked as a corporate tax attorney in New York City at one of the most prestigious law firms in the nation. He has participated in over 100 transactions advising such clients as Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and J.P. Morgan. On Wall Street, Kurt saw how banks and big business received world-class tax advice. Determined to offer the rest of America the same world-class service, Kurt left Wall Street to build RocketRelief.com.
What We Do
We help taxpayers find honest, effective tax relief services by providing access to the most highly valued tax experts in the country and online tools to make the tax relief process transparent and painless. We work with taxpayers of all types, from small- and medium-sized businesses to individuals to trusts. We’re unlike others in the industry; we think and do things differently and are frequently told by our customers that we’re a breath of fresh air.
History & Status
Rocket Relief was founded in 2010 by our CEO who left a career on Wall Street to transform the tax industry. Our team is small but we’re working unbelievably hard to deliver value.
Team & Talent
Individual talent and teamwork is very important to us. Since starting, our most significant achievement has been getting the right people on our team. We’re getting better every day at improving our hiring practices, refining our core principles, and providing the right opportunities that drive enthusiasm. We believe that there are few things as rewarding as working with other highly talented people.
Principles & Culture
It’s not what we do that defines us, it’s how we do it. Principles drive behavior, and behavior creates culture. Principles we hold dear include excellence, self awareness / improvement, initiative / ownership, virtue, teamwork, and problem solving / creativity.
What Makes Us Tick
Doing things right. It’s just part of our DNA. We want to do things better, more efficiently, smarter and ultimately, provide something useful. It’s the means, not the ends that drive and interest us. We could be involved in any industry, doing just about anything, and our motivations would stay the same. We’re competitive and love to win. We thrive on positive customer feedback. We desire to improve whatever it is we’re doing.
