We know construction and the results are visible ...

"The construction industry can be complex, navigating through the accounting and tax rules is an ongoing challenge. Construction has always been a focus for the firm but several years ago, we took this niche to another level and continue to raise the bar. Our CPAs focus on construction specific continuing education and heavily participate in local and national trade associations which allows us to integrate ourselves within the industry and to understand what really matters to contractors.” – Colin Gorman, firm Managing Partner and past Arkansas Builders & Contractors Chairman. Presently the firm consults with over 100 construction and contractor clients.

On November 8th, the Partners of EGP, PLLC announced that George & Company, PLLC has joined the EGP team. This partnership will bolster EGP’s presence in Jonesboro, AR and add to the firm’s extensive construction industry expertise.

The combining firms offer all of the traditional accounting services, as well as CFO contract services, litigation support, fraud and forensics, and business valuations. "This merger allows us to utilize our combined staff, knowledge, and resources to better serve clients of various sizes and industries,” said Ron George, Founder of George & Company. Ron brings over 30 years of public and private accounting experience and will become the Director of Tax Services for the Jonesboro office.

While both EGP and George & Company provide accounting services to clients in numerous industries, both firms specialize in providing accounting, tax, and consulting services to construction industry clients. "The joining of these two firms allows us to enhance our extensive experience and provide an unparalleled level of construction industry expertise to our clients," said Mark P. Barnett, Jr. Mark is the Director of the Jonesboro office and Firm Wide Construction Services. He is currently the only Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) in the state of Arkansas and is one of approximately 1,000 in the US.

EGP was recently named as the exclusive Arkansas member firm of the Construction Industry CPAs & Consultants (CICPAC), which is a national association of the best construction CPA firms in the US that serve over 7,500 construction companies.  Demonstrating proficiency in construction is the basic requirement for all CICPAC members. However, in order to become an exclusive member, firms must also maintain a solid reputation for providing the highest-quality work and integrity. This is confirmed through reference letters from a variety of construction industry specialists.

In total the firm will grow to over 40 employees statewide. The EGP, PLLC Jonesboro office will relocate to the former office of George & Company, PLLC located at 2508B Alexander Drive in Jonesboro. The combined firm will operate under the EGP, PLLC name. We serve clients both big and small and are proud of the working relationships we've formed over the years through ABC of Arkansas, AGC, and the CFMA.
