Coet2 named ‘Business of the Year’ in Westminster

April 2018

Chamber chooses accounting firm based on its integrity, commitment to others

WESTMINSTER, Colo. (April 2, 2018) – Coet2 CPAs has earned distinction as the 2017 Small Business of the Year, as designated by the Westminster Chamber of Commerce.

In the Chamber’s annual awards gala at Noah’s Event Venue recently, the Chamber announced that Coet2 had proven its worthiness for this award out of all the Chamber’s members.

"Coet2 exemplifies the kind of integrity and community involvement that characterizes so many of our Chamber members,” said Bryan Head, chairman of the Chamber. “Congratulations to Coet2, our Small Business of the Year."

Coet2 has experienced steady growth since moving to its current location at 10860 Dover St., Suite 2500, in Westminster two years ago. At the same Chamber event, Coet2 was recognized by the City of Westminster as a winner of its 30-year Legacy Award.

The founder and principal partner of Coet2 CPAs is Fran Coet, who has distinguished herself in numerous ways as one of the Denver area’s top female businesswomen in an industry that is typically dominated by males. She has been recognized in three separate years as a finalist in the Denver Business Journal’s Outstanding Women in Business competition.

"We are so proud that the Westminster Chamber has chosen us for this Company of the Year honor, because we know how many worthy competitors are excelling in the Westminster business community," she said.

Fran has two partners in the firm, Cathie Asmus, CPA, EA, and her husband John Coet, CPA, CFP.
