MINNEAPOLIS & ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HLB Tautges Redpath Ltd. announced today that the employee-owned accounting firm has officially changed its name to Redpath and Company. The newly branded firm will open a second office in downtown St. Paul on September 1, where approximately 45 of Redpath and Company’s 125 employees will relocate. The firm also said that Mark Gibbs, partner and client manager, will transition into the role of managing partner, which is currently being performed by Jim Redpath, who will become full-time partner and client manager.
“With Mark’s exceptional business acumen and keen ability to devise innovative solutions, it is clear that he will thrive as our managing partner,” said Redpath. “The relationships he has cultivated during his 27-year tenure at Redpath and Company have shaped our firm’s culture and strengthened our reputation as a caring and committed organization. I am excited about the future of the company, given the contributions Mark will continue to make along with the dedication and excellence of the larger Redpath and Company team.”
Redpath and Gibbs will have offices in both the new St. Paul headquarters and the current White Bear Lake location. Following the managing partner transition, which will occur on October 1, Redpath plans to devote his efforts on client management, tax expertise and new business development. Gibbs will manage the firm’s overall operations while continuing to focus on client management and business development.
“The upcoming transition will allow Jim to spend more time doing what he does best: getting out in the community, connecting with people and sharing his tax expertise,” said Gibbs. “He is an integral part of our business development team and I am excited to continue working with him as we move the company forward.”
The headquarters transition to downtown St. Paul was spearheaded by Gibbs, who recommended the move based on Redpath and Company’s substantial growth in recent years. The new headquarters will be located in the Alliance Bank Building, located at 55 East 5th Street in St. Paul.
“Establishing our headquarters in St. Paul is a natural fit. We already have a presence in the local business community and this move will allow us to better serve our clients and advance our growth objectives,” said Gibbs. “It is an exciting time to be stepping into the role of managing partner.”
Redpath and Company also announced its new brand, which more accurately represents the firm’s position as one of the top CPA firms in Minnesota. The rebranding efforts include a new website, complete with Jim Redpath’s tax-savvy blog and additional contributions from various industry leaders.
