Jody Grunden is the CEO and Co-Founder of Summit CPA Group. From Summit CPA's inception in 2002, Jody transitioned the company to a distributed accounting firm in 2013. Since 2002, Summit CPA Group has grown from a team of two people to approximately 50. The company has grown extremely fast, experiencing three-year 150% growth consecutively over the past three years and being recognized by Inc. 5000.

About Us: Summit CPA was founded in February of 2002 in Fort Wayne, Indiana with the focus of taking a non-traditional approach to accounting. They did not want clients to be hesitant when called because they were afraid of the end result – A BILL.

Because of the way technology is utilized, their entire 401K Audits are performed without ever stepping foot in a client's location, which was nearly impossible five years ago. Why do most CPA firms have to spend countless hours interrupting the day-to-day activity of their clients? The answer is simple, they don’t, they're just stuck in the past. With the use of Web Portals, E-mails, and GotoMeetings, audits can be performed anywhere.

By taking a non-traditional approach to accounting, Summit CPA has undergone extreme growth since their humble beginnings. When traditional accounting firms have seen level or declining growth over the past 5 years, they have seen annual growths in excess of 15 percent in each of those years.

Do clients like the non-traditional approach? Summet CPA thinks they do.
