In November of 1975, after years of working at one of the big 4 accounting firms, Jud Cary decided it was time to hang out a shingle and open his own accounting practice.  His plan from the start was simple.  The plan was to wake up early, work hard, treat people right, and serve the great state of Texas with their accounting needs.  That plan led to the core values and culture that exists today at SCPA Group.

    Over the years, various partners were added to the firm each bringing their own unique experiences and talents.  While the name may have changed, the core values and culture that have existed since 1975 haven’t.

    In 2021, Scott Scarborough, Ph.D., CPA bought the firm, and the name was changed to SCPA Group.  Scott is a born and raised Texan from Baytown, Texas with a vast knowledge of accounting in different industries.  Read more about Scott HERE.  SCPA Group is part of the SCPA Network of affiliated accounting firms.  The SCPA Network is comprised of accounting firms in Austin, Texas; Denton, Texas; Houston, Texas; Maumee, Ohio; Stow, Ohio; and Wake Forest, North Carolina.
