HD Davis, White Glove Payroll Post Growth

By Tim Petrey, managing member

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Business at HD Davis CPAs grew on the back of adapting to a new set of rules for taxes and operating business in today’s digital world. We are on the forefront of technology integrations for business services, have fully implemented a custom-built solution for payroll services and have expanded our services.

As such, 2018 was one to remember at HD Davis CPAs and White Glove Payroll. We expanded our outsourced CFO services, 401(k) audit division and our data-driven business consulting services, and we experienced group-wide revenue growth of 17% year-over-year.

In 2019, our goal is to expand our 401(k) audit services, payroll services and business software consulting divisions. We’ve invested substantial time into additional certifications, partnerships and software to become a local leader in all three areas.

Our industry continues to demand increased holistic business services.

We train our employees to be the quarterback of our client’s advisers, often tasked with coordinating plans and strategies with financial advisors, attorneys, programmers, marketers, health-care providers and insurance agents among others. When we help our clients get the most out of their relationships, it also helps their advisers to provide the services they are best at.

Employment increased to 28 at HD Davis and White Glove Payroll, up from 23 in 2017. Angela Duskey, a certified public accountant, joined as partner and head of the tax and health care professional department in our Youngstown Office. She recently was recognized as outstanding recent alumnus at the Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University.

New staff members at HD Davis include Christine Graygo, also a CPA and manager, specializing in health care, manufacturing and business process outsourcing, as well as staff accountants Angela Johnson and Jocelyn Tabus.

Alex Bohr was promoted to head payroll concierge at White Glove Payroll and added nearly 100 clients in the first year of the division. New hires for White Glove include Karen Clayton and Christopher Streiner.

We launched our inaugural HD Change Campaign and partnered with Potential Development School for Students with Autism for the annual fundraising and volunteering campaign for our team members.

Many of our clients had very successful years in 2018, and this year we look to help them continue that success, guide them in managing it appropriately and prepare for whatever the future may hold.

Our community has made great strides toward creating a new and improved identity, and we will guide our clients to continue contributing to the “new and improved” Youngstown and surrounding communities.
