Echelbarger, Himebaugh, Tamm & Co. (EHTC) was established in 1977 by Dennis M. Echelbarger, CPA/CFF/CGMA. His passion for public accounting and community outreach has made EHTC what it is today. His drive was the everyday challenge of resolving issues for individuals, non-profit organizations and businesses, while building long term relationships.
Since then, EHTC has become one of the most successful local multi-service accounting firms in the Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area, and is a recognized leader in the business community, as well as a participant in professional organizations and volunteerism.
Today, EHTC is a knowledgeable and dedicated public accounting firm that can help you tackle your toughest challenges. We have local firm relationships and large firm resources, like our BDO Alliance, so no client is ever too tough for us to handle.
Our collaborative team approach allows us to consistently offer proactive client services that make a real difference for your bottom line.
We are not typical accountants. We love really getting to know our clients and pride ourselves on creating a personal relationship that is unmatched in the area – that’s why we intentionally focus on our people and our culture.
A big part of the EHTC culture is our core values: willing to grow, going above and beyond, having a passion for living and teamwork. All team members are encouraged to obtain additional certification to further their knowledge and grow within the company. With everything we do, we strive to keep the correct balance of hard work and fun, while growing each team member to reach their full potential.
EHTC takes pride in giving back to the local community. Each year we host our Chipping for Charity golf outing in June, an event that raises money for a local organization. Since its inception, over $307,000 has been donated to West Michigan non-profit organizations. Our team members also enjoy volunteering at local organizations, both as a team and individually, and participate in our annual Day of Caring and other opportunities throughout the year. Each year at Christmas, we participate in Adopt-a-Family in hopes to make the holiday season brighter for West Michigan families.
