Delivering on the Promise
for your organization 

At Skoda Minotti,
our mission is to Deliver on the Promise
of adding value to our clients' success.

Our Roots

Skoda Minotti's origins date back to 1980 when our founders recognized the need to serve a niche market of small to midsize companies. The vision was to provide more than accounting services to clients; we wanted to help these businesses grow and achieve greater success.

Early Growth

1980s

As our firm grew rapidly throughout the '80s, it was named to the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies from 1987-89, making it the fastest growing firm of its kind in the country.

Seed 4
Revolutionizing the Industry

Early 1990s

We had an idea that would revolutionize the accounting industry—a new business model that permitted non-CPA ownership of CPA firms and separated service lines of business in a way that permitted unlimited capital investment in the business from non-CPA owners. We worked with the AICPA, the attorney general’s office and dozens of state accountancy boards to receive approval of our new model. We co-founded a public company that would bring together essential business services for small to midsize businesses, and by doing so, add value for our clients.

Expansion

1996 - 1998

We led the new public company through an era of unparalleled expansion. Our teams visited, researched, interviewed and performed due diligence on 2,000 companies and eventually purchased 130 of these businesses at a cost of over $650 million. In two years, the company grew to 5,500 employees, over 240 offices in 40 states and achieved over a $2 billion market cap. Based on 1998 results, Fortune Magazine listed the firm as one of the 100 fastest growing public companies in America.

Reinvention 

2001

We re-entered the private sector with a core of talented professionals dedicated to Delivering on the Promise to our clients, employees, business contacts and community. We further developed our niche service offerings to provide clients with complete business advisory solutions, including financial services, professional staffing, risk advisory services, strategic marketing and technology solutions.

Expansion

2000s

To more efficiently serve our growing client and employee base, Skoda Minotti opened our Fairlawn (Akron area) office in 2008 and our Tampa office in 2012. We also completed several acquisitions in order to broaden our service offerings to our clients and add depth to our professional staff. Major acquisitions completed during this time period include Baumann, Raymondo & Company PA (an accounting firm in Tampa, Florida), Dowell & Perez (an accounting firm in Tampa, Florida), Lomax, Soful & Foster (an accounting firm in Akron, Ohio), DataServ (a technology services firm in Westlake, Ohio) and Assurance Concepts (a risk advisory services firm in Tampa, Florida).
