Time for a change?
The pandemic has taught us a lot about ourselves. It either pulled teams closer together or made it clear it's time for a change.
The CPA world is changing, more are exiting than entering and small firms are selling which means lots of opportunity exists.
We're growing organically and through acquisition providing a good home to teams and clients. If you love public accounting, this is a hot industry to stick with!
Check out our current open positions and stay tuned for more additions to come throughout the summer.
