GREENSBORO/WILMINGTON, NC (October 2, 2019) – DMJ & Co., PLLC, a certified public accounting and business consulting firm with headquarters in Greensboro, announced today that the Wilmington, North Carolina firm of Miller & Company Certified Public Accountants, P.C. will become DMJ & Co., PLLC. Miller & Company will assume the DMJ name, effective November 1.
Miller & Company has been a staple in the Wilmington region since 1993 serving the accounting needs of small businesses and individuals. By joining with DMJ, the Wilmington office will continue to serve clients in the Coastal Cape Fear area with the added resources of a larger firm. Miller & Company stockholders, Sandra A. Miller, CPA, CFE and Rebecca A. Rhodes, CPA, will continue with the combined firm as managers and managing shareholder, Gregory D. Miller, CPA, will become the DMJ partner in charge of the Wilmington office. All CPA and staff positions will remain. The combined firm will now employ more than 85 people, including 11 partners.
“When your name is on the door, as it has been for the past 25 plus years, you take seriously your commitment to your clients and to the CPA profession,” said Greg Miller. “We may change our name, but we will not change how we serve our clients and treat our business partners. DMJ is a client-centered firm that shares our values, our commitment to quality, and our promise to our community.”
The expansion now means a DMJ presence in southeastern North Carolina and the firm’s fourth office location in the state. DMJ also has offices in Greensboro (the Triad), Durham (the Triangle), and Sanford (the Sandhills). The DMJ Durham office was established in 2016 and the DMJ Sanford office was opened in 1990. Founded in 1949, the firm is currently celebrating its 70th anniversary. In 2019, DMJ was again recognized as a Top 300 firm by Inside Public Accounting.
Mike Gillis, CPA/PFS/CGMA, DMJ’s Managing Partner says, “As we celebrate our 70th anniversary this year, we also remember to look to the future and focus on DMJ’s vision ahead. We recognize the importance of strategic growth that anticipates our clients’ needs, oftentimes from formation to succession and through very personal milestones. We are excited to expand to the Coastal Cape Fear region and continue the legacy and commitment of the Miller & Company team.”
Miller & Company has a long-standing relationship with DMJ that spans more than twenty years. As a member of CPA Connect since 1998, DMJ was Miller & Company’s sponsoring CPAmerica, Inc. firm. CPAmerica, Inc., is one of the largest associations of CPA firms in the United States. Through the affiliation and close working relationship, the two firms have a history of working together through consulting and various tax and accounting engagements. They will continue to offer clients the personalized service of a local firm and the knowledge and resources of a global network.
In addition, this merger also notes a new offering of services to the region with DMJ’s experience in healthcare consulting and wealth management (DMJ Wealth Advisors, LLC). Together, the firms will continue to provide the traditional services with deeper practice areas in international tax consulting, litigation support, succession planning, audit and reviews, among others. Gillis notes, “Our people, our clients, and our community continue to be our guiding principles. Through this relationship, we feel we can add significant value.”
With a history of more than seventy years, DMJ’s philosophy―personal attention, verifiable results—is the cornerstone of the firm’s practice and client relationships often going beyond the scope of traditional accounting and auditing services. DMJ offers an array of services including certified public accounting, wealth management, and medical and dental practice consulting.
