William P. Puryear began his certified public accounting practice in 1962 in what was known then as the Third National Bank building in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. His practice was built around auditing, personal financial planning, and tax. Within the next twenty years, three experienced professionals, James Hamilton, Jeffrey Hausman, and Ronald Wood joined William Puryear & Co. These men brought with them diverse fields of experience, including areas of compliance and planning services for non-profit clients, oil and gas entities, multi-state home health care companies, government audits, financial analysis, and special procedures reviews. The firm is now Puryear, Hamilton, Hausman & Wood, PLC conveniently located in the Cool Springs area, and includes the subsidiary of PHHW Technology Services, LLC. Jami Pope and Stephanie Richerson, who both oversee accounting and audit services, and Troy Tschantz, who oversees tax services, are the most recent employees to become members.
Our philosophy is to provide the finest auditing, accounting, tax, management advisory services, and computer technology services possible. Our goal is to assist our clients to reach their maximum potential by matching the skills and experience of our professionals with the particular needs of each client. The firm desires to contribute to our community and the profession to which we belong. We also want to grow, but never lose the local identity and personal relationship with our clients who are the foundation of our practice.
