415 Group, a certified public accounting, business consulting and IT services firm, continues to draw top talent from across Northeast Ohio with the hiring of five new team members. With these new additions, the firm adds a supervisor, three associates, and an IT help desk specialist to its roster of experienced professionals.
“As a firm, we’re continuing to deepen our bench of experienced tax professionals,” said Rich Craig, 415 Group managing partner. “Our firm continues to see steady growth, and with these new hires, we’re adding a broad range of new talent and skillsets that allow us to best serve our clients. We’re looking forward to having them on the team.”
Sara Poppovich is 415 Group’s newest supervisor. With expertise in both tax services and QuickBooks consulting, she will focus on clients in the manufacturing, healthcare and professional service industries.
As a new associate, Cory Contini joined the firm with service expertise in tax services and business valuation and litigation services.
Adam Keener, a former intern, joined 415 Group as an associate. He focuses on the preparation of individual and business tax returns, along with other tax services.
Another new associate, Seth Marsh was added to the team to primarily work on audits. Before joining the firm, he was an accounting assistant at a local business.
James Baker—who was the Manager of Technical Services for a North Canton company that provided security and access systems all over the state of Ohio—is the firm’s newest IT help desk specialist. In this role, he remotely assists clients to provide them with a quality managed IT experience.
415 Group also welcomed three interns, who will provide temporary assistance throughout the 2021 tax season.
“It’s always a privilege to help train the next generation of accounting professionals,” said Craig. “Our internship is an opportunity for them to gain real-world accounting experience, and we appreciate the extra support they provide our team during a busy tax season.”
