Del Amo Financial Center, Circa 1982

Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce Chamber Weekly - December 2014.

Around Town with TACC Governmental Affairs Coordinator Brandon Matson
Brandon visits Charles McDonough Accountancy Corporation

I recently had the opportunity to visit Greg Wilson, President of Charles McDonough Accountancy Corp. The full service CPA firm has been located in Torrance since 1967 where it was founded by the late Charles McDonough. Charlie, as Greg refers to him, established an enduring culture of professionalism and work-ethic that is still evident today. It was special to hear Greg speak ardently of Charlie's life and to witness Charlie's lasting legacy. The enthusiasm and professionalism I encountered during the visit was first-rate.

Greg, a long time Torrance resident and West Torrance High School graduate, first met Charlie through a local Rotary connection. Greg joined Charlie in the late 1970's and made an instant impact on the firm's success. He was brought in as a shareholder in 1982. Greg and his team provide high-level consulting, advisory work, tax preparation, and many additional services that have built a renowned reputation as a go-to CPA firm in the area.

An interesting fact that Greg shared with me during the visit was that the firm has occupied a suite in the same building at 21515 Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance (now the California Bank & Trust building) in the Del Amo Financial Center, since its founding. The Accountancy Corp. has been a Chamber member for over 40 years and is an avid supporter of the Torrance Business community and community at-large.

Thank you, Greg, for the years you have spent doing business in Torrance, and for being a valued Chamber member for over 40 years. We wish you continued success.
