Today's leaders require a 360 degree vision for all areas of the firm in order to be successful. Greg Colson, who started the firm in 1981 with Bill Murphy and Jack Moore, possesses that vision, but takes it a step further. "He not only dedicates his time and contributes whatever it takes for clients, partners and the firm staff, but also leads a concerted effort to give back to the community and his church. He makes time for organizations such as; Right From the Heart Ministries, and Feed My Lambs, which runs tuition-free Christian Schools located in economically challenged areas in the Metro Atlanta area and around the world," said Bob Kiser, Senior Partner, Moore Colson.
Mr. Colson is also IGAF Worldwide - Chairman of the Board, North America, and a graduate of Georgia Southern University (B.B.A., Accounting, 1970), where he serves as a Member of the Board of Trustees for the Georgia Southern University Foundation.
"Greg will be quick to tell you that the firm's success is predicated on two things; its unique culture, which differs from most, and a complete group effort from everyone in the firm, from partner to associate," said Bob Kiser.
Greg's areas of professional expertise include; consulting with the management of closely held companies on strategic planning and profitability enhancement, primarily in the transportation, distribution, construction, and service industries. Greg's leadership and business philosophy permeates throughout the firm. Under his leadership Moore Colson has continuously been ranked among Atlanta's top 20 accounting firms and was recently named one of America's top 25 best managed firms, by IPA, Inside Public Accounting Magazine, and best places to work by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
"I am honored to have been nominated for this award. It is a complete team effort, so the accolade goes to the entire firm. I believe our unique culture and consultative approach sets us apart from the rest, and has made a significant contribution to level of success we have experienced over the years. Our leaders and staff have such varied industry experience that we can contribute in many different areas. As the industry grows, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find the right people to become future leaders for the firm. Part of Moore Colson's mission statement reads; 'Our people are our most valuable resource', and I truly believe this. Without them we wouldn't be where we are today," said Greg Colson, Managing Partner, Moore Colson.
