A Firm History: BGW Through the Years


More than three decades of exceeding expectations.

For more than 35 years, individuals and closely-held businesses have turned to BGW and its predecessor firms for guidance in solving their accounting and advisory needs. We have sustained our clients’ trust and exceeded their expectations throughout our history, making us one of the Carolinas’ most trusted and rapidly-growing CPA firms.

Despite our growth, we remain smaller than national CPA firms — on purpose. Trained in the ways of “Big 4” accounting, our founders had a vision for a different kind of accounting firm, one steeped in professionalism and competency but committed to maintaining close, forthright relationships with clients. We like to say we’re “more than just accounting”. Our client satisfaction surveys indicate that we are just that: trusted advisors and friends.

We are headquartered in Charlotte because that’s where we originally established roots, but you’ll find us serving a wide variety of clients throughout the Carolinas. With offices in Hendersonville and Myrtle Beach, too, we’re never too far away.

Balance, Growth, Wisdom. This is more than our mantra. It’s our whole identity. We look forward to bringing these same principles into your life and business.
