Hamilton and Associates was founded in 1983 by Gregory C. Hamilton, CPA. A resident of
Brandon with a wife and young family Mr. Hamilton left a large firm in Tampa and opened an office on SR 60 with just six clients. Within a year the practice grew to over thirty- four clients and continued to multiply exponentially for the next thirty years.
When searching for qualified employees Mr. Hamilton tapped an underutilized segment of the workforce - professional women who chose to no longer work eight hour days in downtown Tampa while raising a family. He adjusted their work schedule from 9:00 to 2:00 to mirror the school schedule and offered reduced summer hours thus garnering many of the top professionals in the area.
Referrals from existing clients were the basis for the firm’s success. They praised the individual attention and expertise in which the firm addressed their business and individual accounting needs as well as Mr. Hamilton’s ability to clarify tax laws and offer recommendations.
Mr. Hamilton retired in 2016 but his legacy of dedication to clients continues.
The current principals Rachel Santana and Dustin Orr have been with the firm twenty years and ten years respectively. They bring a wealth of knowledge much of which they learned from working directly with Mr. Hamilton.
