Message from our Managing Partner, John B. Brannan, CPA

As a local CPA firm located in Tampa for over sixty-five years, Dwight Darby & Company has established an outstanding reputation as a respected business advisor within the community. There are several qualities about our firm that enable us to maintain this reputation.

We are truly a “local” firm. Each of our partners has a history of continuity by having an association with the Firm from twenty to over thirty years. Of the four partners, three began their public accounting careers with Dwight Darby & Company. Part of the strength of our firm is the continuity and stability of the Firm's partners.

We distinguish ourselves from other firms by the quality of service we provide to our clients. This begins with a high level of involvement on the project or engagement by the partners. Each client has a partner who is responsible for servicing their specific needs. By being involved on the engagement, the partner gets to know your business and operating philosophies and develops a relationship with the owners of the company in order to be a proactive business advisor throughout the year.

We have a very competent and professional staff to perform the fieldwork of various type engagements. As a result, the staff becomes knowledgeable about the day-to-day operations of your organization and is a valuable resource to answer business, tax or accounting related questions during the year.

All of our partners and staff are proficient in many different areas, while at the same time concentrate in specific industries or specialties. This allows the client, in most instances, to be able to consult with one primary person regardless of the issue. In addition, we are accessible and responsive to the needs of our clients as they arise during the year.

We think all of these qualities are important to consider when deciding which CPA firm is right for you. When you choose Dwight Darby & Company, we want to become your most trusted business advisor and to begin a rewarding relationship that will benefit each of us for years to come.

John Brannan
