Reynolds Bone & Griesbeck Marks 100 Years

Reynolds Bone & Griesbeck of Memphis, Tenn., is celebrating its 100th anniversary with 100 days of charitable giving. The firm will be volunteering and giving to organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the YWCA and several organizations based in Memphis – the community it has served for the last century.

The firm began as Shannon Reynolds & Bone. The current name stuck a few years later when George Griesbeck joined the firm, and the name stuck.

MP John Griesbeck, the grandson of George, says the local community has been good to RBG over the last century and they took that in mind when planning their 100th anniversary celebration.

“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,” he says. “So the best way we could think to celebrate our success was to simply give back.”

While the firm had some ideas about how it could serve the greater Memphis area, it wanted to give its clients and employees a voice in deciding which acts of service were most meaningful in these communities, asking them to vote on which organizations they support.

Based on their responses, RBG employees will volunteer and give back to several local organizations for 100 days straight starting this spring. Some of the organizations selected include:

  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
  • YWCA
  • Wolf River Conservancy – Cycle the Greenway
  • Mid-South Food Bank
  • Church Health Center
  • MIFA Meals on Wheels
  • Lifeblood
  • LeBonheur Children’s Hospital
  • Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County

RBG continues to thrive and grow after a century because it looks toward the future and is deeply commitment to clients, employees and the community, the firm says. RBG boasts 98% client retention and 95% annualized employee retention.
