This week, we're featuring sponsor James Moore, not your average CPA firm.
When people turn to James Moore, they can expect more than a CPA firm. True, we offer the usual accounting, tax, and audit services you’d expect from us. But we also have expert professionals in other areas that help organizations thrive, like human resources, information technology, long-term financial decision making, data analytics, transition planning for business ownership, and much more.
Our firm was founded in 1964 by James “Jim” Moore, a CPA and professor at the University of Florida. Since then we’ve grown from a humble, three-person business to a regional firm with five offices throughout Florida and nearly 300 employees. Through all that change, one thing has remained – an unrelenting determination to find the best solutions for our clients. One of Jim’s favorite saying was, “Service is the sole purpose of our existence” – and we take that phrase to heart.
What makes us unique? We’ve already mentioned one aspect – the wide range of services we offer. Running a business or organization isn’t just about numbers; it requires a holistic approach. Few CPA firms serve as a one-stop-shop the way we can. Combine that with our commitment to industry knowledge and decades of experience, and our clients have a powerful ally in their corner.
We also believe solidly in work-life balance. We offer multiple career path options and flexible work schedules that blend with team members’ lives outside the office. Our remote-work policy allows employees to be based where it suits them and their families best. And we do more than encourage people to pursue their personal interests… we celebrate it! Your CPA might be a certified yoga instructor, a classical pianist who performed in Mozart’s childhood home, a scuba diver who had a pet barracuda…
Finally… while we take our work seriously, we don’t view ourselves the same way. Embracing a sense of fun is part of the James Moore life. It’s not unheard of to see us having chair races down the hallway or engaging in a doughnut-eating contest. Our annual JMCOlympics field day-style competition and our yearly Festivus celebration (yes, that Festivus - complete with comical grievances and “feats of strength”) give coworkers a chance to blow off steam and enjoy some silliness.
All of this enhances a key James Moore tenet: our commitment to the uncommon. We’re not just any CPA firm. And as we head into the future, we’re pursuing all kinds of new opportunities (and hiring all kinds of people!). One of our latest initiatives is our Data Analytics service line. We often find that our clients don’t have the information they need to make sound, actionable decisions. Yet they’re often sitting on the data they need — they just don’t realize it or can’t access it conveniently to use it in a meaningful way. We’re truly excited about helping our clients in this vein.
