Kuno joined Pease, CPAs in 1990. He started as a part time, busy season, data entry employee while he was a senior in the accounting program at Cleveland State. Kuno went to back to Case Law in 1992 after passing the CPA exam, and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree (cum laude) in 1995. He was instrumental in growing the firm to approximately 110 people in multiple offices, and now leads the firm as the managing partner. Kuno has been a driver in developing a proactive and technically oriented tax department.

Throughout the years Kuno has developed a large client base of Skilled Nursing Facilities. To date, the firm works on approximately 5% of all the skilled care facilities in the United States. This nationwide client base was developed through providing proactive tax planning advice and tax compliance services. The benefit to having such a large concentration of clients in one industry is that ideas and approaches from one client can be implemented quickly across the entire client base.

Kuno has become a respected voice in several industries. He has authored several articles which are now cited as authority on some cutting-edge tax positions. This includes the cover article for the Journal of Taxation, Lexus/Nexus, and Mcknight ’s Long-Term Care News.
