100 Days of ServiceFebruary 23, 2016
As mentioned in a previous blog post, we are celebrating our 100th anniversary. We started as a small accounting firm called Shannon Reynolds & Bone. A few years later, George Griesbeck joined the firm, and it became Reynolds, Bone & Griesbeck.
From our beginnings off of Cotton Row in downtown Memphis to our current headquarters in the heart of East Memphis, our firm has weathered two world wars and the Great Depression. Today, we grow and thrive because of our talented employees, dedicated clients, and the Memphis community.
Our Managing Partner, John Griesbeck, the grandson of George, says the Mid-South has been good to RBG over the past century, so in honor of this milestone, we are proud to give back to our community by completing service acts for 100 days during the summer of this year.
“Over the last 100 years, this community has made our firm what it is today,” said
Griesbeck. “Our founders were among the first certified public accountants in the state of Tennessee and we would not be the success we are today without the trust and support of the businesses in this community. So the best way we could think to celebrate our success was to simply give back.”
We gave our clients and employees a voice in deciding which acts of service were most meaningful in our communities and asked them to select the organizations where we would dedicate our time. Some of the organizations selected include:
- St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
- Wolf River Conservancy - Cycle the Greenway
- Mid-South Food Bank
- Church Health Center
- MIFA Meals on Wheels
- LeBonheur Children’s Hospital
- Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County
