Our History

A heritage of success.

It was 1970, in Indianapolis, Indiana, and four visionary accountants recognized a gap in the market. They saw the need for an accounting firm that provided the same quality services as national firms, but with an emphasis on closely-held businesses and growth-oriented organizations.

With this in mind, they created a firm that could provide these stellar services, while also focusing on individual clients and helping them achieve their goals. Today we continue that tradition.
