        Firm Facts

        Jackson Thornton, a certified public accounting and consulting firm, was established in Montgomery, Alabama, on March 3, 1919. From its beginnings, the firm has operated with personal integrity and professional excellence.

        For a century, Jackson Thornton has evolved and expanded to provide more of what businesses need, whether strategic planning, business consulting, technology consulting or specialized industry services.

        In the early 1980s, Jackson Thornton Utilities, the first group to establish an industry specialization, was launched. Specialization continued to grow in response to client needs, and Jackson Thornton’s professionals soon developed specialties in other high growth industries, such as construction, manufacturing and healthcare.

        Jackson Thornton’s Valuation and Litigation Consulting Group was created in the early 1990s in response to the growing need for experienced professionals trained in business valuation and litigation support services. Around this same timeframe, Jackson Thornton was chosen as a member of RSM US Alliance, a premier affiliation of independent accounting and consulting firms in the US. As a member of RSM US Alliance, Jackson Thornton has access to the resources and services of RSM US LLP (currently the fifth largest accounting firm in the country)

        In the next few years, Jackson Thornton leveraged its extensive experience working with closely held businesses to develop two subsidiaries, Jackson Thornton Asset Management LLC and Jackson Thornton Benefit Resources LLC to serve their needs.

        Jackson Thornton Technologies LLC (JTT) was also founded in 2001 to support clients’ information technology needs. JTT quickly expanded to work with a variety of companies including those in the healthcare, education and professional services verticals throughout the Southeast.

        In 2008, Jackson Thornton opened its fifth office in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2016, the firm acquired Auburn/Opelika-based Brantley Boucher & Farr LLP, expanding our reach into East Alabama.  While our philosophy of client-centered service has not changed, the accounting and consulting firm of Jackson Thornton now serves clients in six locations, with a team of more than 200 professionals trained as both accountants and business consultants.
