SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – On Wednesday, Feb. 20, the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce performed a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate Graham & Graham PC’s relocation to their beautiful new site at 368 River St. in Springfield. Over 60 local business owners and employees were in attendance for the February After Hours Chamber Business Mixer to celebrate the occasion. President Jeff Graham welcomed folks into his new space, offering tours of the offices and sharing stories of the renovations that modified the site to meet their needs.
Fifth-generation Vermonter Jeff Graham is from Springfield originally. He’s a Springfield High School graduate, class of 1976. He attended Plymouth State College where he obtained his associate degree in accounting.
On March 4, 1982, Jeff started his accounting practice as Graham Financial Services. For two years, he worked out of his home in Weathersfield, Vt. before he landed in Ludlow with two former Dufresne-Henry design experts, Steve Plunkard and Peter Bourgois.
Currently Graham & Graham PC employs two full-time and two part-time employees in the Springfield office. They also employ additional full-time employees in their two New Hampshire offices. Graham & Graham is a full-service accounting and consulting firm providing professional services to a wide variety of clients from individuals to medium-sized corporations. They offer everything from tax preparation and tax planning, to business and management consulting, auditing, bookkeeping, business valuations, fraud and forensic investigations, estate/trust/probate services, and expert witness in litigation cases. They serve Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. They also have “practice privileges” in four other states.
The list of ways that Jeff and his firm give back to the community is long and impressive. Jeff is a longstanding Chamber member because to him it means “giving back and being available for business-related assistance.” Jeff has been a Rotary Club member since 1985, a board member for many nonprofit organizations, and a supporter of Parks & Recreation and the Springfield Booster Club. He loves coaching youth baseball. He is chairman of the Business Advisory Group at River Valley Tech Center, a founding and continuing member of the Springfield Regional Development Corporation, and he has provided no-cost specialized services to organizations who needed assistance. He offers job shadow experiences for high school students and provides intern positions for SHS accounting students during their college years. Jeff is also the provider and presenter for the Miss Christine Lawlor scholarship.
Next week will mark 37 years in practice for Jeff! Graham & Graham is located at 368 River St. in Springfield. For more information, visit www.grahamcpa.com or call 802-885-5340.
