PYA is pleased to announce the owners of HG&A Associates, P.C., a Knoxville-based CPA firm, and their team have joined PYA effective July 1, 2023. The HG&A Associates team will transition its audit, tax, and client accounting and advisory services clients to PYA.

Founded in 1984, just one year after PYA’s launch, HG&A Associates has been a respected professional public accounting firm that has provided comprehensive accounting and consultation services including client accounting, tax planning, payroll services, business consulting, buying and selling of businesses, auditing, and estate planning. With a strong reputation for relationship-building and exemplary client service, the HG&A Associates culture aligns with PYA’s culture and core values.

“We are extremely excited to welcome the owners of HG&A Associates, their team, and clients to the PYA family,” said Mike Shamblin, PYA Managing Principal of Audit & Assurance. “While PYA now serves clients in all 50 states, Knoxville is where we were founded and continues to serve as our headquarters. The HG&A Associates team, like PYA, has a heart for the great companies in East Tennessee. PYA is thrilled to add their talent to our Audit, Tax, and Client Accounting and Advisory Services teams.”
