Charlotte Accounting Firm Celebrated Upstate Market Expansion At Sept. 21 Event
(Charlotte, N.C.) – GreerWalker LLP, a full-service certified public accounting firm, celebrated its recent expansion into the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson business community with a September 21 reception in Greenville.
Mayor Knox White and approximately 100 members of the business community attended the event, which was held at the Poinsett Club.
GreerWalker, headquartered in Charlotte, has opened a new office at 15 South Main St., Suite 800, in the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Greenville. The firm’s major specialty fields — manufacturing and distribution, global business, real estate and construction – complement burgeoning growth markets in the Upstate region and its dynamic international business sector.
The Upstate, the westernmost region of South Carolina and the fastest-growing in the state with about 1.5 million people, includes the counties of Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Pickens, Cherokee, Oconee, Union, Laurens, Greenwood and Abbeville.
Barry Leasure and David Walker, GreerWalker partners, have relocated to help establish the new office. Since its origins in 1984, the firm has grown from three people to more than 100 associates and 13 partners.
“As someone with family connections in Greenville, I’ve been impressed to witness the region’s sustained growth and emergence as a major business force with far-reaching impacts,” said Leasure, a graduate of Bob Jones University. “We’re excited about bringing our expertise and services to this community.”
