About Stambaugh Ness

Our story began nearly a century ago in 1918 when Harry Ness recognized the need for tax and accounting services for the hard-working, tax-paying residents of Central Pennsylvania. Mr. Ness had the distinction of being the “first CPA in Central PA”.

Fast forward nine decades, Mr. Ness’ vision has evolved into Stambaugh Ness, PC, a specialized professional services team of accountants, business advisors, human resources, and technology consultants. It’s a team committed to continuing on the path of meeting the ever growing needs of our clients.

With the establishment of Stambaugh Ness Business Solutions (SNBS) in 1997, we forged a new chapter, addressing the increasingly complex technology needs of our client’s, with strategic and customized solutions designed to maximize their IT investment.

In 2014, we continued our growth with the acquisition integration of Acuity Business Solutions (ABS), as a division of SNBS. This chapter of our story extended our reach in serving hundreds of professional service firms in over 40 states, deepening our industry knowledge, and positioning us with the talent and deep experience with Deltek products and services.

Today, the SN story continues to evolve and most recently tells of our award-winning culture, being recognized as a Best Places to Work in PA for the past three years. This achievement has created a sustainable environment to encourage professional and personal growth, as well as positioning our team to focus on their passions and their purpose. Additionally, SN received the prestigious BDO Alliance USA Service Award in 2017 for our collaborative efforts within the Alliance.

It’s pretty simple – our vision is to create and passionately deliver innovative solutions that make the lives of our clients better. We accomplish this by understanding our clients’ aspirations, anticipating needs, and collaboratively arriving at solutions, with the expected outcome of another delighted client.

Together, with our clients, we can’t wait to see where our story leads us next.
