We are excited to announce that effective January 3, 2020 Gilliam Coble & Moser, LLP and Apple, Bell, Johnson & Co., P.A. have merged and will operate under the new name of Gilliam Bell Moser LLP.

What does this mean for our clients?

This merger provides our clients with access to more specialized service offerings, delivered by a team of eight partners and 44 total employees. 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.

What does this mean for our team members?

This merger provides our personnel with greater career opportunities, including new services and developing more industry specialties, and working on ever-challenging engagements. It will also enable us to continue to attract the best and brightest from area universities and colleges.

Going Forward

Changes for tax season are intended to be minimal. Personnel assigned to your engagement will continue providing you with the same quality of service that you have come to expect from us. While there are plans for a combined location in Burlington, we will continue to operate from our respective offices in Burlington and Greensboro.

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.

In time, you’ll see this new look across our website, social media and all our documentation. In the meantime, please continue to contact us using our current email addresses.

Gilliam Bell Moser LLP is a member of Allinial Global, an association of legally independent firms.

Please feel free to contact us to find out more or discuss any aspect of the exciting changes we will be phasing in. Thank you for the trust and commitment you have placed in our respective firms and now as the combined firm of Gilliam Bell Moser LLP.
