History & Values

GranthamPoole’s long-standing commitment to service and value dates back to 1972 when J. Thomas Grantham Jr. and James E. Poole Jr. worked together as young accountants for a Jackson CPA firm. In 1977, Grantham launched his own company and Poole followed suit in 1985. Over the years, the two were equally successful before reuniting under the same roof in 1999. With more than 40 years experience between the two firms, GranthamPoole has created a solid history built on trust. Today, GranthamPoole is one of Mississippi’s largest accounting firms.
