Our Founder & Namesake

William S. Cannon, CPA

Though Bill passed away in 2013 his philosophy of integrity, smart business, solid accounting, and informed decision making lives on in our firm. 


Bill Cannon graduated from the University of Texas in Austin with a BBA in Accounting in 1961.  He received his CPA in 1966.  Bill worked as a controller for a construction company before opening his own practice in 1974.  He served clients in variety of industries including, construction trades, manufacturing, professional services, and retail.   He acted as a controller, mentor, adviser, and friend to hundreds of clients throughout his years of service.  The size of the client was irrelevant.   Bill would treat the smallest business owner with the respect of an industry titan.  And the client always came first.  There was never a need to sell unnecessary services for the sake of the own bottom line.  Bill believed when our clients were put first, our success would follow.   This is the philosophy that lives on in our firm today.  We believe every business owner should be afforded the opportunity of sound, selfless, proactive council.       


Bill worked tirelessly, helping clients right up to his death.  We honor his memory by serving clients as he did, with respect and integrity.
