TURNING HURDLES INTO OPPORTUNITIES

CRI was formed in 1997 as a merger between two prominent firms who recognized the changes that the accounting industry was undergoing and decided to classify these changes as opportunities instead of hurdles.

Just two years after this strategic alliance was formed, CRI cracked into the Top 100 Accounting Firms in the United States, thus cementing our legacy as a major player in the accounting industry.

Today, after 20 years of consistent growth since our formation, we have expanded to support the expansive relationship between technology, data, and accounting by incorporating data scientists and IT professionals into our scope of work. This has allowed us to grow into the 20th largest CPA firm, nationally, with no plans of slowing anytime soon.

Commitment to Diversity

The world in which we live and work is full of complexities and tensions that can have a monumental impact of our communities. Considering how much time our employees spend in their places of work, we must be able to not only address those topics that can cause tensions and complexities, but to do so with openness and compassion.
When our managing partner and chairman, Bill Carr, signed the CEO Action for Diversity &a InclusionTM pledge, he made a public commitment to building a productive, diverse, and inclusive workplace.
The CEO Action for Diversity and InclusionTM is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance inclusion and diversity within the workplace. Forged by the notion that addressing diversity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal one, recognizing this commitment starts at the executive level. We are excited that CRI is now a part of more than 50 other leading accounting firms in the nation, and more than 900 of the world’s leading companies and business organizations, who are set on leveraging their voices to advancing inclusion and diversity in today’s workplace.
We are proud of the people who represent our firm and the culture that our people perpetuate. Together, we are committed to working to address issues, facilitate uncomfortable conversations, and learn from one another—all with the sole purpose of driving meaningful change.
