History of Padgett
In 1965, Walter Padgett had a vision. As a small business owner in rural Athens, Georgia, he witnessed local business owners struggling with the financial aspects of running their own companies. His solution? Create a financial services company focused on helping small business owners thrive more in business.
Over the years, that vision became PADGETT BUSINESS SERVICES® and its parent company, SmallBizPros, Inc. Today, that original vision is still driving PADGETT to be the leader in an industry it founded 40 years ago. With a network of over 400 offices in the United States and Canada, PADGETT is one of the largest privately-owned small business services firms in the country. Thousands of small business owners rely on PADGETT for a wide array of business services – from their basic bookkeeping needs, tax planning and preparation, government compliance, payroll services, general business consulting and more.Schedule an Appointment
