415 Group announced today that Partner Scott Whetstone, CPA, MT, will retire on Nov. 4.
“Having worked for more than four decades in the public accounting field, it’s a bittersweet decision to retire,” said Whetstone. “Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to develop many personal relationships with my clients that I’m eternally grateful for. But I’m looking forward to this next chapter in life and spending more time with my wife, Paula, and our son, David.”
Whetstone joined 415 Group in July 1989. During his 30-year tenure, he helped guide the firm through tremendous growth, as it expanded from a team of six to a team of more than 60 employees.
415 Group Managing Partner Frank Monaco said Whetstone has worked closely with the firm’s 10 other partners to establish a succession plan that will make the transition seamless for clients.
“Everyone who knows Scott — his clients and his colleagues — can attest that he set the standard for personalized service, commitment and dedication. It’s a level that we all aspire to,” said Monaco. “His leadership and his insight will be greatly missed, but he’s worked hard to ensure that our firm is positioned for the future. We wish him well in retirement.”
