Milligan & Company Celebrates 25th Anniversary – that reminds me tax season is right around the corner

This was an event I was invited to cover, but I had a conflict. On occasion I can run other peoples photos since I like to put a lot of content on my PhillyMag.com column and run out of events to put on PCC. These photos were taken by my friend Photo: Chris Santaniello/ MetroPhillyPhoto , but I will add content to keep it interesting and not like a photo album of sorts. I promise to only run other people’s photos at the most 2xs a week.
Milligan is well known as one of the country’s largest minority and veteran-owned accounting firms, with five regional offices.
Milligan staff Angela Lee, Jovan Goldstein, Diane King and Jim Buckley “Historically, blacks have one of the lowest levels of representation in the accounting industry: about three percent,” noted Jovan Goldstein, Partner in Milligan’s Audit Practice. “That has posed challenges for young black accountants, but it has also given our firm a unique position. Milligan has become a firm of choice for many large organizations that embrace supplier diversity and quality services.”
