Elliott Davis Opens Office in Richmond, Virginia

Firm Relocates Practice and Positions for Growth

GREENVILLE, S.C., Aug. 14, 2012 – Elliott Davis, LLC, one of the largest accounting, tax and consulting services firms in the Southeast, is pleased to announce that it has opened an office in Richmond, Virginia.

Located at 3900 Westerre Parkway, the office is led by Shareholder Paul Pickett, who transitioned from the firm’s Galax, Va. office, which was relocated to Richmond.

“As the state capital and one of the largest cities in Virginia, Richmond offers a strong, diverse business environment in which we can further build our practice,” said Pickett. “This location also allows us centralized access to our clients across the state, allowing for enhancements from both service and efficiency perspectives.”

Founded in 1925, Elliott Davis is headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina and has offices across this state as well as in Georgia and North Carolina. The firm opened its first Virginia office in 2006. This recent move to Richmond is part of Elliott Davis’ long-term strategic plan.

“We are focused on aligning our resources on markets like Richmond that provide the greatest potential for growth and sustained profitability,” said Rick Davis, firm managing shareholder for Elliott Davis. “This region also boasts numerous colleges and universities from which we can recruit top talent and continue to progress our practice.”

In addition to organic growth, Davis said he expects expansion of the office to come from lateral hiring and potential practice acquisitions.

“Our vision is to be a recognized leader in our markets. Richmond is no different for us; we have big plans here,” stated Davis.

One of the top 50 CPA firms in the country, Elliott Davis serves diverse companies throughout the Southeast, providing comprehensive solutions in areas such as federal, state and local tax, audit and accounting, as well as corporate transaction consulting, business valuations, and international business and tax structuring.
