LBA Haynes StrandLBA Haynes Strand, PLLC is a certified public accounting firm with offices in Greensboro, Matthews, and Mount Airy.  The firm is led by John Bly and Jeff Gordon as Co-Managing Members as well as eight other Principal Members with varying backgrounds in tax and audit.  The firm has been ranked as a “Best Places To Work” by the Charlotte Business Journal and named a “Best Accounting Firm To Work For” in 2013 by Accounting Today.  A great culture and work environment is not all LBA Haynes Strand has going for it, the firm is also one of the fastest growing firms in North Carolina, having been named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 List of fastest growing companies in America and to the 2014 Charlotte Business Journal Fast 50 list of the fastest growing companies in Charlotte.  
The Firm is a result of eight acquisitions and three mergers in the past ten years.  Most recently, and the largest merger to date, the firms formerly known as LB&A and Haynes Strand and Company joined forces.  With a staff of approximately seventy, LBA Haynes Strand has evolved to serve North Carolina businesses by hiring, growing, and promoting the most talented staff.

Each of the Firm’s principal members and managers have experience working with the nation’s largest national and/or regional accounting firms.  These key team members have come together to build a unique accounting firm.  The joining together of decades of experience with public, private, and governmental clients allows our Firm to call upon resources that would only be available at the largest firms in the country.  The professional and technical services that clients receive are designed to feel like those provided by a large firm but with the personal attention of a smaller firm. Our principal members and managers maintain a constant and close degree of client involvement and are committed to supporting each employee of our firm and our clients, in an atmosphere of respect and trust.

The work culture has created an environment of low turnover within the firm and a commitment to returning team members to the same engagements each year to build trusted professional relationships with our clients that encourage communication and year-round support.  This continuity benefits both clients and staff by preserving and protecting the technical and institutional knowledge that has been learned, controlling costs, saving time, and making sure clients are working with trusted professionals who have a clear understanding of their unique goals and strategies.

Our Firm takes service beyond the basics by providing value throughout the delivery of our services to help improve, where possible, operations and ensure compliance with regulations and general statutes. We are a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the AICPA Governmental Audit Quality Center, the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants, and the AICPA Private Practice Center.
