About Apple Growth Partners
Apple Growth Partners champions the Healthy Growth® of our people, our clients, and our communities through authenticity, exceptional service, and taking care of each other.
We are professionals and CPAs with backgrounds in accounting, finance, law, business management, and transaction advisory. Our services encompass the functional needs of a business; our planning and analyses help businesses plan for and manage growth. Our Healthy Growth Checkup® for private businesses helps gauge the need for these services. We offer a full range of services for privately held businesses, including tax planning and compliance, audit and assurance, business valuation, litigation consulting, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), fraud prevention and detection, family office services for High-Net-Worth individuals, and transaction advisory. With more than 100 employees, we collaborate with business owners and partners across Ohio and beyond, extending client services through a remote workforce in 2020, while maintaining office locations in Akron, Canton, and Cleveland. In 2021, we introduced AGP Anywhere – a ground-breaking program enabling our professionals to choose where they work best: remotely, in one of our three offices in Northeastern Ohio, or a hybrid of both.
We are experts in industries important to the Northeast Ohio business community and beyond, having recently expanded our workforce with the addition of remote professionals. Our professionals provide expertise in additional industries and services, such as employee benefit plans, bookkeeping, auto dealerships, manufacturing, construction and real estate, and Black-owned businesses.
