Our People

Commitment at Every Level

Every accounting firm takes pride in the expertise and experience of its principals. At Farris Cooke and Associates we take just as much pride in the quality and capabilities of our managers and other team members.

When we hire staff we work hard to attract people with the ability to immediately increase the depth of understanding we bring to the industries and services that are our specialties. This lets us focus on the one thing that matters most: your business.

Our Principals

Dedicated to Serving our Clients

The professional services you receive are only as good as the people who provide them and the level of effort they put forth. Our principals certainly have the direct personal and professional experience our clients need, but what sets our principals and consequently our firm apart is the amount of effort and care they provide to each of our clients.
