Decosimo will host its Huntsville grand opening and ribbon cutting reception at The Ledges on May 24.
Decosimo, a leading regional accounting and business advisory firm, is celebrating its new office in Huntsville, Ala. The 40-year-old firm that opened its office in November 2010 in the First Commercial Bank building will be hosting its official grand opening and ribbon cutting reception at The Ledges on May 24 at 5:30pm CST.
"Decosimo’s interest in Huntsville was first added to our firm’s strategic plan in 2003, but it wasn’t until we acquired new clients in 2008 that we began to fully appreciate the opportunity that Huntsville offered," said Ken Conner, Decosimo's principal in charge of the firm’s Huntsville development efforts. “We are thrilled to finally have a Huntsville presence and invite the business community to celebrate with us.”
More than 60 guests, including Chamber of Commerce representatives and elected officials, have already registered to attend. To register for the Decosimo grand opening reception, visit www.decosimo.com/grandopening or contact Jessica Johnson at 800.782.8382.
Mr. Conner said Decosimo seeks to build a solid client base in Huntsville. The firm already serves some Huntsville clients through its Tennessee and Georgia offices. In addition to the new Huntsville office, Decosimo has offices in Chattanooga, Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, Atlanta, Dalton, Cincinnati and the Cayman Islands.
Mr. Conner added, “We believe that there is a base of companies not only in Huntsville, but across North Alabama, who will benefit from a regional CPA firm with experience in multiple industries and issues.”
The nationally recognized Top 100 firm offers a wide array of business advisory services in addition to traditional assurance and tax solutions to its clients that represent a diverse range of industries. Services include succession planning, valuation, executive search, merger and acquisition advisory, litigation support, forensic accounting and fraud risk assessment, internal audit setup, management reporting, and due diligence.
"Ours is a business where you don't compete by price and technical aptitude alone - it's a business where you compete by building strong business relationships with your clients and your community," Mr. Conner said.
Decosimo became a Huntsville Regional Economic Growth Initiative (HREGI) progress investor in 2010 and also sponsors the North Alabama Industrial Development Association. In the summer, several of Decosimo’s professionals spoke at an eight-hour accounting and auditing update hosted by the University of North Alabama and have been invited back to speak this summer.
Derek Daniel, assurance manager and the first Decosimo professional to relocate to Huntsville, successfully completed Leadership Huntsville/Madison County’s Focus program in 2010. Mr. Daniel has also been selected for the organization’s Connect Class 13.
“The Decosimo firm and its principals have long been active in their respective communities and Huntsville will be no exception,” said Mr. Daniel. “We have a deep respect for what Huntsville has accomplished during recent decades and are excited about being a part of the Huntsville future.”
Decosimo officials say they will continue to expand the office through a combination of local hires, transfers from other offices and hires of new graduates.
