Kim Ford, Managing Partner
Hill & Ford P.C.
Kim is the Managing Partner of Hill & Ford, P.C. where she has served as a leading tax expert for more than 30 years. Her areas of specialty include tax and accounting, financial and estate planning, business valuations, forensic accounting, litigation and trial consulting. In addition, Kim’s expertise includes the management of diverse company financials and development of highly customized accounting solutions to meet both long and short-term client demands.
Texas Monthly Magazine has recognized Kim’s achievements with its Five Star Wealth Manager Award in the area of Taxation and she has been twice honored with the San Antonio Business Journal’s Who’s Who in Accounting. In December 2012, Kim was invited to a White House round table to discuss the impending fiscal cliff. Her success in income tax consulting during an era of economic uncertainly has made her highly sought after by individuals, businesses, government administration groups, and media outlets throughout South Texas.
In addition to her designation as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Kim is also a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) and a Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF). As such, she is uniquely qualified to perform business valuations and forensic evaluations. In her role as a highly experienced forensic accountant, Kim works closely with attorneys to investigate complex financial situations where fraud is suspected and provide expert testimony in the courtroom.
Growing up in the west Texas town of Andrews, riding horses and competing in rodeos took up all of Kim’s free time as a youngster. While in high school, her passion for math and problem solving lead her to a part-time job with a local accounting firm and from the age of 16 she was hooked on the public accounting profession. While earning her accounting degree from Texas Tech University she worked at regional and national firms, adding to her accounting and income tax knowledge.
Following graduation, she went to work for Gerald Hill’s firm in San Antonio. Kim began her work in the firm’s tax and audit departments. Within five years, she was promoted to Tax Manager and in 1994, Kim became a Partner in the firm.
Outside of the office, involvement in philanthropic activities is very important to Kim. She is the Board Chair for San Antonio Youth Literacy (SAYL) where she has served as a board member and Reading Buddy for four years. Kim is also the Past President of the San Pedro Playhouse, past officer and current Public Policy Committee member for the San Antonio Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), and past board member of Impact San Antonio. Her extensive community service was recognized by the San Antonio Business Journal and Kim was awarded with its prestigious Women’s Leadership Award in Volunteer Leadership in 2014.
Kim is also the proud mother of her daughter, Heather, a recent honors graduate from UT- San Antonio, who is now enrolled in the Personal Financial Planning graduate program at Texas Tech University.
