GUELPH, ON, Oct. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - With profound respect and gratitude, Collins Barrow - Guelph Wellington Dufferin announces the retirement of two cherished colleagues, partner Dennis Zinger and principal Andy Smart.
Zinger's career began in 1979, when he decided to lead a small accounting office in Elora, Ontario. From these humble beginnings, he played a pivotal role in the growth of the firm to what it is today – one of the largest accounting firms in the Wellington and Dufferin counties with offices in Guelph and Elora.
A partner at Bairstow, Smart and Smith since 1990, Smart dedicated himself to developing one of the most well-respected accounting firms in Guelph. In 2016, after many successful years in practice, Smart helped facilitate the merger that formed the Collins Barrow - Guelph Wellington Dufferin of today.
"Dennis and Andy have each had remarkable careers in their own right and provided immeasurable value to our firm," said Collins Barrow - Guelph Wellington Dufferin managing partner, Tom Blonde. "Their mentorship and commitment over the years has given us the strong foundation to continue to deliver exceptional service and grow our firm. We are grateful for their dedication and wish them all the best in the future."
