Our Team

Gordon P. Fleck, Founder

After his 1954 graduation from Eastern Kentucky University with both a Bachelor and Master degrees, Gordon was drafted and spent 2 years serving his country in Korea. Upon his discharge in 1956 he accepted the Band Director position at the Carrollton, KY High School. The four years he taught there were very enjoyable.

He returned to his roots in the Chicago area in 1960 and opened G. P. Fleck & Associates, an accounting and tax service business. He successfully expanded his practice by always using cutting edge technology. His slogan was and still is “High Tech Efficiency with Old Fashioned Service”. He is still a vital part of the firm that is now known as Fleck & Uhlich, Ltd.

He kept his love for music and joined the Chicago Businessmen Symphony in 1960 playing violin. A few years after that, he also joined The West Suburban Community Band playing the clarinet.

Barbara E. Uhlich, EA, ATP, Principal Member of Firm

Enrolled Agent with the Treasury department

Barbara began her career in Trust Accounting, first at The Northern Trust in Chicago and then at what was known as Oak Park Trust & Savings Bank. In 1976 she joined G. P. Fleck & Associates, a public accounting firm in North Riverside and continues to work with Gordon Fleck, but now as a principal in Fleck & Uhlich, Ltd. That’s over 40 years! Many clients assume Gordon is her dad but they’re not related.

Although involved in all aspects of the business Barbara enjoys the individual tax preparation the most. She loves seeing the same clients year after year and catching up on what happened in their lives or the pleasant surprise when they have occasion to call or stop in outside tax season. She also enjoys meeting new people who are almost always referred by existing clients. Most clients would say that Barbara has a very calming influence on them. Tax time can be full of anxiety and she has a way of putting everyone at ease.

Luckily football season doesn’t conflict with tax season so each fall Barb and her husband Bob try to attend at least one road game of their favorite team.

School:       MBA with a concentration in Accounting & Finance from Keller Graduate

Licenses:    CPA

Experience:   Robynn has been providing auditing, accounting, tax services and business and management planning services to businesses and individuals for over 20 years.

Upon graduation from DePaul, Robynn began her accounting career as an Internal Auditor for a brokerage firm in Chicago. Her responsibilities included all aspects of engagement performance including planning, supervising and conducting audit fieldwork, preparing financial statements and audit reports and presenting audit results to management. After several years at that firm, she began auditing for a fortune 500 Manufacturing firm, traveling all over the world to review opportunities for financial and operation improvements at plant locations. When an opportunity arose, Robynn joined the Purchasing Department as a Senior Financial Analyst and worked with suppliers to review their cost structures and implement cost saving initiatives. In order to work more closely with suppliers, Robynn accepted a Senior Purchasing position and led a cross functional team to review international cost cutting opportunities in India and Mexico.

After obtaining her MBA, Robynn joined a local CPA firm and began working with small businesses to assist them in managing their costs. Since 2002 Robynn has been helping individuals with tax and financial planning and small businesses that needed the financial expertise of a Controller but couldn’t afford to hire their own. Robynn began working with Fleck & Uhlich in 2006.

Adrienne Stevens, E.A.

Adrienne@fleckanduhlich.com 708-485-8845

Adrienne found her niche in individual tax preparation as an undergraduate at Robert Morris College now known as Robert Morris University. She began working at H&R Block in 1997 and discovered the flexibility of the company fit well with the demands of her accelerated academic career. Upon graduating, she worked at a small CPA firm that was eventually bought by RSM McGladrey, Inc. During this time she married her college sweetheart. After a successful tax season with RSM, Adrienne took time off to prepare for her much-anticipated son only returning to work seasonally at H&R Block until he was of school age. Still, she managed to begin the Master of Accountancy program at DePaul University which she completed in 2008. She realized she enjoys the more intimate setting of a private firm to a larger corporation so she spent the next several years with a Wheaton financial planner near her home.

Adrienne started at Fleck & Uhlich, Ltd. as a tax professional in November 2014 and is very happy putting her Master’s degree to good use as a permanent part of the firm year round.
