Apple Growth Partners Opens New Ohio Office

Akron, Ohio-based Apple Growth Partners (FY16 net revenue of $11.5 million) will open a new office in Canton, Ohio, in May.

“We would like to have that office staffed with 12 people within a three-year period,” says chairman Charles Mullen. “We want to outgrow that office and hopefully be up to 20 people there after five years.”

“That middle market, small to midsize business market we serve so well, it’s not becoming more competitive,” says Mullen. “I think it is because a lot of competitors are going upstream for bigger clients. We are still hungry to pair up with any local firm that does not want to sell out to an out-of-state firm, who wants to stay local but is struggling perhaps with their succession plan.”
