Who Are We?

Rise is not your typical accounting firm. We go beyond the traditional role associated with most accounting firms and become trusted business partners and advisors for our clients.

Since 1979, we’ve been helping businesses of all sizes create the results and lifestyles they envision by delivering expert insights and guidance, and building lasting relationships.

We work primarily with privately-owned businesses to provide a unique, customized, and coordinated mix of services, including accounting and assurance, tax planning and advisory, business improvement advisory, mergers & acquisitions advisory, and estate and succession planning.

Why Work With Us?

We are an inclusive dynamic team of highly experienced professionals who provide big firm solutions to privately-owned clients.

Our leadership team is focused on talent development. We prioritize internal engagement, growth, and advancement of our team members as we understand the value and impact of your professional growth not only in the company but on your journey towards your CPA designation.

By the end of your term, you will have a good foundational understanding of financial statement and tax compiling and reporting, what common issues private companies face, and how to work through those issues as a part of a team.
