Bartlett joined GSS in 2009 with a focus on estate and trust services and business valuation services.

Pearce joined the assurance services department of GSS in 2014, bringing with him 15 years of public accounting experience. He provides audit, review and consulting services for manufacturing, distribution, real estate, technology and health-related entities, as well as other services companies. His areas of focus also include audits of portfolio companies of private equity firms; including providing due diligence review services in relation to mergers and acquisitions, as well as privately owned companies.

“In an environment where many local CPA firms have made the decision to sell their practices to larger regional and national firms as a succession plan, GSS traveled a different path by self-funding their own retirement plans, ensuring that their shareholders have a viable exit strategy while also enabling them to add new shareholders to continue the success and growth of the firm,” the firm announced.
