Chambers host joint ribbon cutting at Gruenloh, Hardy


ROBERTSDALE, Alabama — Gruenloh, Hardy & Associates hosted a joint ribbon cutting and open house on Tuesday, Sept. 24 with the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce and the Central Baldwin Chamber of Commerce.

In August, Gruenloh & Associates P.C., established in the Central Baldwin area almost 30 years ago, announced their forthcoming merger with local firm Hardy Brock Consulting by the end of the month.

The newly named full-service accounting firm, Gruenloh, Hardy and Associates, is located in the Gruenloh building on Alabama 59 South occupying much of the lower and upper floors.

“When we started this discussion months ago, we realized that we were more than just potential partners,” Wayne Gruenloh said. “We are longtime friends and brothers in Christ. Yes, part of this is because I will someday want to retire, but that’s not going to happen any time soon. I’m having too much fun.”

Gruenloh, Hardy & Associates has six certified public accountants on staff including the five partners: Wayne A. Gruenloh, CPA, LUTCF; James H. Hardy Jr., CPA; Melissa Brock, CPA; Angela Doege, CPA, and Collena Matz, CPA, MBA. Each partner has different areas of expertise totaling over 100 years of combined experience. GHA will provide services in business planning, outsourced accounting, QuickBooks, auditing, tax and compliance, management consulting and financial planning.

“While we are extremely proud of the tax, consulting, and technology firm we have built, we view this merger as a significant benefit for our firm’s clients and staff,” said Jamie Hardy in a press release issued in August. “Gruenloh & Associates shares our philosophy that ‘our success originates from our client’s success.’”

Gruenloh, Hardy and Associates is located at 22193 Alabama 59 S., Suites C & F, in Robertsdale. For more information call 251-947-1040 or visit
