History

Our mission at Galgas Russell Weber LLP is to consistently exceed our clients' expectations with exceptional, personalized and trusted business advice and service.

Our three partners abide by this philosophy, which has always been and continues to be the heart of our practice.

Randy Galgas joined the firm Perry Hay & Chu LLP, in 1985 as a staff accountant. At the time, he was a recent college graduate with two years of accounting experience in the construction industry. Randy was named partner in 1995 after creating and developing the firm’s technology services department, which he continues to grow to this day.

Ray Russell joined the firm as a partner in 2004. He brought 16 years of accounting and auditing expertise with him, including his experience as an accountant for Deloitte & Touche LLP, and as a partner in another Los Angeles based accounting firm.

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.
