Mark Weber joined the firm a year later in 2005 as senior tax manager and was named partner shortly thereafter in 2007. His 14 years of accounting and advanced tax experience included nearly ten years at Century Business Services, Inc., the seventh largest accounting firm in the nation.
The addition of these three partners fostered significant growth within the firm over the next five years, which was recognized in 2010 when the firm became known as Perry Hay Galgas Russell & Weber LLP.
The firm has continued to expand with the addition of new talent, bringing innovative ideas and advancements that have complimented the partners’ decades of professional experience and expertise. This expansion and modernization led to the evolution of a new era culminating in June 2013 with Galgas Russell Weber LLP, a client service focused firm.
