Grodsky Caporrino & Kaufman LLP was born in 1977 when two long-time friends and professional colleagues, Anthony Caporrino and Arnold Grodsky, combined over thirty years Big 8 Public Accounting experience and formed GCK.
Their vision was straightforward and simple. Create a culture where the Client comes first married with a strong work ethic free of petty politics. Work should be Rewarding, Fulfilling, Fair and Fun.
Tragically, Arnie Grodsky passed away unexpectedly in 1983. In his memory, a conscious decision was made to always keep Grodsky as part of our Firm name. This is an insight as to what is highly regarded as meaningful at GCK: Respect.
Four decades later, GCK’s client portfolio has grown. We range from high net worth individuals to multi-national corporations as we provide tax, accounting and advisory services across a broad spectrum of industries encompassing real estate, publishing, insurance, manufacturing, healthcare, wholesalers, retailers and professional services… to name just a few.
We not only believe in upward mobility, we practice it. Partners DeCastros and Graci started with our Firm very early on in their careers and worked their way up through the ranks making Partner at a young age by industry standards. Our Partners are working partners with a hands-on attitude. GCK believes in delivering the finest quality work in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
