About Our Firm

Our firm was established by MARION J PADGETT in 1984. We have been located in Richwood since 2000.

Marion began working with Price Waterhouse & Co in 1968.  After eight years with Price Waterhouse, he moved to the food industry for eight years as the Chief Financial Officer for an international fruit company.  These tours assisted Marion in gaining excellent experience to aid him in the establishment of  his own firm. Jessica Mastronardo, his granddaughter joined the firm in 2003.

As of Summer 2019, Marion is no longer active in the day to day operations but maintains a partnership interest in the firm. He will be working limited hours on a consultation basis.
