Pinell & Martinez, LLC

During a routine fishing trip, two friends discussed their goals as CPAs and contemplated whether or not to take the biggest leap of their professional careers and lives. The consensus: “Let’s do this for our families!”

Chris Pinell and Randy Martinez wholeheartedly supported the decision to start a new firm because they wanted a different kind of life – one that would allow them to put down roots in Covington and one where they would be home for dinner with their families.

By putting their families first, Chris and Randy also set the atmosphere for a different kind of firm – one where the people who make up the firm are valued and respected above everything else.

That day, the founding partners demonstrated another characteristic that would set our firm apart: shared values. Before they could move forward together as business partners, Chris and Randy needed to be on the same page about the core values for which they were eager to fight: integrity, family, and service to clients.

Through that unity of values, Chris and Randy laid the foundation for a firm that appeals to vibrant professionals and clients who hold those same values. Thanks to that solid foundation, Pinell & Martinez, LLC has grown at an unforeseen pace. Clearly, the alignment of core values is a powerful thing!
