Charleston-based CPA firm Gibbons & Kawash, A.C., will mark 20 years since its founding with an open house from 4:30-7 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Chase Tower outdoor plaza.
"We have been blessed with talented staff and exceptional clients and friends in the community, and this milestone provides a wonderful opportunity to say thank you," Tom Gibbons, who founded the corporation in September 1992 with Steve Kawash, said in a news release.
Gibbons said the firm started with a handful of employees, but now serves thousands of clients and employs more than 40 people.
"But even as we celebrate our first 20 years, we are planning for the next 20," Kawash said in a news release.
Kawash said the firm is poised for continuing growth because of strategic positioning in a variety of niche markets, a core leadership team of seven shareholders/directors and its membership in the BDO Seidman Alliance - a nationwide association of independently owned local and regional accounting, consulting and service firms.
Gibbons & Kawash is one of the region's largest CPA firms, according to a news release from the firm. It provides accounting, tax, business advisory and valuation services.
