NEW BRITAIN - He started at a firm in Hartford, but in 1989 he moved to New Britain where heâ€™s been for the majority of his life.
Frank Marrocco, owner of Frank D. Marrocco CPA, has been working with some of the same clients since his move, while helping new clients and growing his business.
â€śOne thing Iâ€™ve always felt with my business, what makes it different from somebody else, is I donâ€™t think of a client as a client. I think of them as someone that I really want to see them do well. Itâ€™s almost like a family member,â€ť said Marrocco, whoâ€™s helped generations of people since he became a certified public accountant in 1974. â€śI have clients Iâ€™ve been working with for 30 or 40 years.â€ť
Located at 142 W. Main St., Marroccoâ€™s staff includes Cheryl Sylvian, who holds an accounting degree from Central Connecticut State University; and administrative assistant Elvita Barnes. The staff advises customers on income tax planning and preparation, accounting, auditing and financial reporting, estate and trust accounting and tax services, payroll preparation and retirement planning.
All these services are available at a competitive rate since clients can find the help they need in one office.
â€śWe are a very cohesive and productive team, and thatâ€™s why we can do things efficiently,â€ť said Marrocco.
With about 95 percent of his work coming through referrals, Marrocco said, he is very much involved with the community. As a member of the New Britain Network Group - an organization made up of nearly three dozen distinct and different businesses - Marrocco has helped many local organizations.
The New Britain Lions Club, New Britain EMS, the New Britain Chamber of Commerce, Interfaith Housing Inc., the New Britain Boys & Girls Club and youth hockey organizations are just some of those organizations, in addition to the New Britain Housing Authority.
â€śI work in New Britain and live in New Britain, I want New Britain to be a good place for people to live in, work in, enjoy,â€ť said Marrocco.
Marrocco is on the committee for the Connecticut State Society of CPAs and participates in the peer review program for the Connecticut State Society - which means every three years his firm is evaluated for quality and completeness. His firm also meets the requirement of 40 hours of Continued Professional Education.
