Bernard Robinson and Company

Bernard Robinson and Company

The Triad has maintained a trajectory of managed growth, sustainable over time, which has contributed to the health and diversity of our area. One reliable hallmark of a stable, thriving community is the measured success of the businesses within it. Greensboro and the greater Triad have no shortage of those success stories to share. Bernard Robinson & Company is one such success story. As the largest Triad-based public accounting firm, celebrating their 65th year as a pillar of the community, the firm has been providing certified public accounting and business advisory services to companies nationally since 1947. Dan Hayes, Partner, has been with the firm since 1988. He reflects, “Some things have changed and others have stayed the same. While the makeup of the greater Triad area has moved from being largely based on textiles, tobacco, and furniture to one that is expanding into aviation, innovative manufacturing, life sciences, specialized business services and supply chain and logistics, the relationship between the CPA and client remains the same. As the world becomes increasingly complex, the consultative role the CPA performs for his or her client is that much more critical. Maintaining technical expertise and industry depth is a continuous process.”

Proud to still be the trusted advisors for the third generation of their first, second and third clients, Hayes goes on to say, “Our ability to attract and retain the best and the brightest talent while maintaining a culture of servitude has been key to the firm’s longevity and growth. Clients associate Bernard Robinson & Company with quality and sincerity.” Hayes adds, “The secret to our success is basic, but critically important. When you assemble a group of highly intelligent, creative, solutions-oriented professionals with a sincere desire to treat others in the manner they would want to be treated, great things happen. We consider our clients and colleagues at the firm our family. We earnestly care about all facets of their success and feel honored to play an integral advisory role in helping them reach and exceed their goals.”

Lory Kelley, Partner, states, “As with the rest of the region, country and world, our clients have been challenged to do more with less while identifying opportunities for innovation and savings. In our trusted advisor role, we are constantly vigilant in helping our clients seize opportunities as we stay on top of industry developments. For example, through the North Carolina Jobs Credit, Research and Development Credit and other state and federal credits, we are able to help clients maximize their cash flow through tax deductions. In partnership with our clients, we are there with them step-by-step discerning the best solutions for their particular set of circumstances. Their success is our success. The double digit organic growth we have averaged over the past five years, during a period when many CPA firms were retracting, is a testament to this.”


Gary Hahn, CPA, Partner, remarks, “It has been exciting to see the growth in our firm and the greater Triad. From my office window I see the signs of growth in Greensboro with a multi-use development led by one of our clients coming out of the ground and expanding every day. Since I joined the firm, I have led the planning and execution of three office expansions, including the opening of a Winston-Salem Office. With our office now at capacity, we are at another major decision point regarding space. Closing in on close to 100 people with over half of our firm CPAs, Bernard Robinson shows no signs of stopping. We come to work every day with the intent to exceed client expectations. We feel our growth is a direct indicator of our ability to do just that. Ultimately, this ability to be successful in our role as trusted advisor is what provides us with the deep satisfaction of knowing our efforts were fruitful. It is also what will ensure that Bernard Robinson & Company will be serving clients for another 65 years and beyond.”
