Firm history

Founded in October 1960 by Jerome A. Gross, CPA, and Martin S. Mendelsohn, CPA, the firm has built its reputation on core values, including creative solutions, outstanding client service and the belief in maintaining the highest quality and ethics in the accounting profession.

“The firm’s first generation of leaders left an impressive mark on Gross Mendelsohn’s culture and commitment to the Baltimore business community,” reflected David Goldner, CPA, CFP, CVA, after assuming the role of managing partner at the firm in 2009. “I believe the firm has thrived over the years, in part, because of the core values that run so deeply through the firm and its people.”

Much preferring organic growth to acquiring or merging with other accounting firms, the firm has enjoyed a long history of attracting and retaining exceptional clients. Likewise, Gross Mendelsohn has attracted and retained talented partners and employees. With one of the lowest staff turnover rates in the accounting profession, the firm offers a congenial environment for bright and creative people to excel.

When Gross Mendelsohn opened its doors in 1960, it did so in downtown Baltimore. The firm has remained in Baltimore’s business district, recently renewing its lease at 36 South Charles Street.

Despite this steady growth, we still measure our success as we did when Gross Mendelsohn was founded — by the quality of our relationships with clients, the value of the professional services we provide, and the integrity with which we work. We proudly celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2010.
