Our Experience

Chad Waide, the firm's founder, started his career in 1991 on the ground floor in the cost segregation industry. He graduated from college with a B.S. degree in Engineering and went directly into cost segregation work. He had the good fortune of working for three of the best Big Four Accounting firms.

He spent the next 14 years working with large accounting firms. He learned the best business practices from these firms. He started his career with Price Waterhouse in Dallas where he progressed to Manager in Cost Segregation Services.

He then moved to Arthur Anderson where he was a Cost Segregation Practice Leader working on a number of projects for Fortune 500 Companies.

And ultimately he joined Ernest & Young where he became a Senior Manager of Cost Segregation Services.

He gained valuable experience working across all major industries including managing engagements for banking, airline, communications, technology, hospitality, insurance, retail, real estate development, food processing, pharmaceutical and petrochemical manufacturing clients.

He did work nationwide. In addition to the standard projects, he participated in cost segregation studies for two major league baseball operations and one National Football franchise.

After 14 years, he realized there was a market need that was not being addressed by the Big Four Accounting Firms.

Anyone who was not a Big Four Accounting Firm client had the same needs. So, he set about to develop his own firm to address those needs in a cost effective manner.

Waide & Associates was created with the goal to deliver Big Four Quality Cost Segregation Services at affordable prices.

Waide & Associates has completed over 1000 projects with his firm ranging from stand alone franchise locations to multi-story multi-use sky scrapers costing almost a billion dollars.

Chad Waide has been performing engineering-based cost segregation studies for over 18 years. Chad started his career with Price Waterhouse and later worked for Ernst and Young where he was senior manager of the Real Estate Advisory Services for Cost Segregation.

Chad Waide has completed over 1000 projects ranging from office buildings, nursing facilities, manufacturing facilities, golf courses, surgery centers, large office towers, apartment buildings and other real estate holdings.

He and his team of professionals have the experience needed to complete the project efficiently and effectively.
