In 1946, Roy L. Purvis, Howard W. Gray and Earl P. Powers founded a public accounting practice in Gainesville, Florida.  It would make them proud to know that their legacy stands strong 75 years later.  The three founding Partners, and the total of 39 that have served at Purvis Gray since its beginning, have lead the firm on a successful path of growth and development which continues to this day.   

 

As a result of our 100% organic growth, Purvis Gray now employs over 110 dedicated partners and staff in six locations across the state of Florida. Today we humbly serve thousands of clients out of our offices in Gainesville, Ocala, Tallahassee, Sarasota, Orlando and Lakeland. 

We are thankful for our clients, employees, partners and communities for helping us reach this remarkable milestone.
