CPAs and Strategic AdvisorsGrowing one’s business while minimizing risk and taxes is an objective of every entrepreneur. To do so requires surrounding yourself with advisors and professionals who can see the things you cannot. Having roots back to 1975, Grennan Fender is among the top 15 largest CPA firms in Central Florida. Its comprehensive service model delivers tax, assurance, client accounting services and strategic consulting services.“Our approach is not rearview mirror- oriented,” said Jed Grennan, founding partner. “To assist clients, it’s important to show you have successfully navigated the years and are profitable yourself.”Grennan Fender is one of the few remaining CPA firms in Orlando still under local ownership. That helps its professionals stay close to their clients, said David Poparad, who was recently appointed managing partner.
“Family business values of trust and respect, together with a servant- leader philosophy, bring us the talented individuals who make the firm their career,” Poparad said. “The firm’s culture is built on this. Our leadership team includes seasoned professionals who themselves inspire others to know and understand our clients’ goals and objectives.”
The firm’s leadership also includes Geoffrey Gallo, senior vice president, marketing and strategic consulting; Katie Drees, accounting director; and Scott Stinard, assurance director. “You cannot continue to grow year after year, and serve the caliber of clients we do, without a coordinated team who trust each other and hold each other accountable,” Gallo said. “As a founding member of CEO Leadership Forums, our strategic partnerships with other advisor companies simply compound the opportunities we have to serve Central Florida businesses and handle all of their possible needs.”
The firm uses an efficient diagnostic and delivery formula that keeps clients coming back for more and referring others. “I am so proud of our team. You can be sure we will deliver the results you need,” Grennan said. “We guarantee the optimal client satisfaction experience.”
