Pierce, who has been with TBC since 2005, is an active member of the firm’s Education Committee and oversees continued education training. Both are members of the firm’s internal Accounting & Auditing Committee. Commisso and Pierce also both perform audits for the firm’s various commercial clients in a wide range of industries and, in their new positions, will manage audits of not-for-profit organizations.

The firm also promoted Gregory Galla, CPA and Ryan McEvoy, CPA, both previously employed as Senior Accountants, to Audit Supervisors. Galla, a member of the Capital Region Home Builders and Remodelers Future Leaders Council, specializes in audits of construction clientele as well as other commercial entities. Galla came to TBC in 2006 from a public accounting firm. McEvoy, who came to the firm in 2009 from another public accounting firm, is on the firm’s internal Manufacturing Committee. Both will supervise commercial and not-for-profit audits in their new roles.

“As TBC continues to grow and thrive, we are excited to watch these professionals rise up the ranks and take on new responsibilities. Our clients rely on the continuity we provide them with so that they can build trusted relationships with all levels of our staff. Furthermore, we recognize that each of these associates has improved their technical abilities, while also serving on internal committees, engaging in activities with outside associations and working with community organizations to deepen their relationships with other professionals and ultimately, hone their interpersonal skills to emerge as future leaders,” Kind said.

“With more than 75 full time associates and over 40 CPAs on staff, we are able to provide quality accounting and auditing services and still maintain a personal and responsive relationship with our clients,”  Kind continued. “The firm has grown tremendously in the last 41 years and we are able to serve clients right here in the Capital Region, throughout New York and beyond through our association with CPAmerica International.”
