Our History

On December 1, 1997 the first office was opened at 700 East Second Ave, Rome GA with two employees. After two years, the office expanded into the suite next door as services grew and more employees were hired. In 2000, the firm opened an office on Tennessee Street in Cartersville, GA. In 2005, the owners purchased the Rome office’s current location at 506 East Third Street Rome, GA. In 2007, the firm acquired a practice in Ellijay, GA. This office moved to the current location in January 2014 at 14224 Hwy 515 Suite 700, Ellijay, GA.

Obstacles Overcome

We began our business in a time when the accounting market was mature. There had not been a “new” CPA firm in many years. We brought a fresh approach to accounting by providing the small to medium sized business with new and innovative ideas. Our client base has expanded to over 2,500 clients throughout the U.S. and beyond.

Creative Approaches to Management or Other Business Innovations

We were the first CPA firm in Rome and Ellijay to have a website, allowing us to have a global outreach. Our flat organizational chart enables us to quickly reconfigure our team. This flexibility allows us to meet the needs of our clients in a more efficient and effective manner. We have leveraged technology to allow fewer people to perform more work at a lower cost; furthermore, the use of technology has allowed our employees the freedom to work from home.
