February 29, 2016 (Bethesda, MD & Washington, DC) – Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell (CBM) is proud to announce the achievement of another huge milestone: its 95th anniversary.
The firm was founded in 1921 by James A. Councilor Sr., who left his position as head of the Consolidated Returns Division of the U.S. Bureau of Internal Revenue (known today as the Internal Revenue Service) to form an accounting firm that would assist companies and individuals with the new income tax process the government had recently established.
Since its inception, the firm has experienced steady and continuous growth. Over the years, new partners have joined the firm and the name has changed several times, eventually evolving to its current name – Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell, PC – in 1961. Today, CBM boasts seven partners, 56 professional and administrative staff members, and two convenient locations: Bethesda, Maryland and Washington, DC.
“This momentous anniversary honors the generations before us who built the firm based on a commitment to providing excellent client service and a willingness to embrace change,” said Peter B. Reilly, CPA, CVA, CBM President and Managing Partner. “We look forward to continuing the legacy of excellence by helping to create future leaders through our focus on their professional development. Of course, our continued growth and success would not be possible without our clients. We sincerely appreciate their loyalty and business and look forward to serving them in the years to come.”
CBM’s 95th anniversary will be commemorated with a variety of promotions throughout 2016 as well as a celebration in the Fall.
