Where It All Started

To Be Greater – It's What We Stand For

Our story: The Bonadio Group is both rooted in tradition and uniquely positioned as a firm of the future. What started as a small team of accountants in 1978 has grown to be one of the Top 50 Accounting Firms in the nation. The entrepreneurial spirit embraced by our founders and their collaborative involvement with our clients is shown in our continued growth. Among our Cornerstone Values:


The Beginning

The Bonadio Group started with only three employees at Tom Bonadio’s kitchen table. We aimed to become a million-dollar revenue business, and by 1982, we had surpassed our goal with revenue reaching $3-4 million.

The Early Years

By the year 1994, we faced a lot of change. We became the first CPA firm to move out of downtown Rochester and grew to 50-60 employees. We officially changed our name to Bonadio & Co., LLP.


Our Expansion

We experienced growth in new territories in Upstate New York, including Buffalo, Syracuse, and Albany. By 2011, we were named the 67th largest firm in the US.
