New San Antonio Office Expands Footprint of Texas’
Fourth Largest Independent Accounting Firm
Briggs & Veselka Co., Texas’ fourth largest independent accounting firm, announced the addition of Richard Agee as Area Director for the firm’s new San Antonio office. Based in Boerne, Agee will work primarily with clients served by the firm’s banking and Outsourced Accounting Services groups. Briggs & Veselka’s banking group works with more than 50 community banks across the state providing audit, tax and advisory services; the firm’s Outsourced Accounting practice grew by more than 50% in the last calendar year.
A former CFO, Agee will work with middle market companies and community banks in the San Antonio area. “I’ve known about the culture of the firm for a number of years, and feel fortunate to be able to join such a fine group of professionals,” said Agee. “Banking is my blood—my father and uncle started a bank in our home town, so in some ways I’ve come full circle,” he added.
“Richard brings great energy and experience to the firm, and we’re looking for him to accomplish great things in the San Antonio, Austin and South Texas markets,” said John Flatowicz, Managing Partner of Briggs & Veselka. “As we’ve grown to become the largest independent accounting firm in Houston, and in the top five in the state, it’s important for us to continue to expand geographically as well. The Hill Country is home to many middle market banks and companies that fit our profile, and who want the kind of hands-on service upon which we’ve built the firm,” Flatowicz added.
Agee earned his B.B.A. from the University of Oklahoma. Richard and his wife, Rachel (an alumni of Briggs & Veselka) reside in Boerne with their daughter, Anna.
