Gilliam Coble & Moser, LLP and Apple, Bell, Johnson & Co., P.A. Merge
to Better Serve the Piedmont Triad Market and Beyond

Burlington, NC, January 6, 2020 – Gilliam Coble & Moser, LLP and Apple, Bell, Johnson & Co., P.A. have merged effective January 3, 2020 and will operate under the new name of Gilliam Bell Moser LLP. The combined CPA firm includes eight partners and 44 total employees. Scott Williams, CPA will serve as managing partner of Gilliam Bell Moser LLP.

“This merger provides our clients with access to more specialized service offerings and our personnel greater career opportunities,” says Scott Williams. “We intend to use our additional resources to increase investments in training, program development and technology, all of which contribute to the positive experience our clients have when working with us.”

“We are proud of the nearly 75-year history of Apple, Bell, Johnson & Co., P. A. and the loyal, long-term relationships we’ve built with our clients,” says K. Dale Greeson, CPA. “When Jeremy Hartle (GCM tax partner and good friend) and I initially discussed a merger with Gilliam Coble & Moser, LLP, we knew this was the chance to offer our clients and our team even more through industry niches, enhanced technical expertise and recruiting the best and the brightest from area universities and colleges. We are excited for what the future holds.”

The foundation of the firm’s new brand is access: having an open door, a welcoming attitude, and an empathetic approach. Our tagline, “we hear you,” underscores our commitment to truly listening, understanding our clients’ needs so that we can guide them toward the intended results. Our aim is to always put our clients first and make sure they are heard — not only by paying close attention to what they say, but also by asking the right questions so that we can discern their ultimate goals. 

Supporting our brand focus, our logo mark suggests an audio speaker, symbolizing active, two-way communication between our firm and our clients.
