Who We Are

Welcome to Smith Leonard

At Smith Leonard, our team believes in the value of relationships and a job well done. Beyond the traditional audit and tax services we provide as a CPA firm, our clients look to us as their valued business advisors, and we often consult on additional matters related to family wealth, succession planning, business services, international services, and mergers and acquisitions. We view every client relationship as a partnership and measure our success through theirs.

With a diverse customer base that often defies the firm’s size and a competent and versatile approach, our Smith Leonard team applies years of invaluable experience and technical expertise to many specialized areas across a variety of industries, including manufacturing and distribution, transportation, not-for-profit, real estate, and construction. This depth of experience and commitment to understanding a client’s business translates to exceptional service. We are proud to have four offices in the Piedmont to fit the needs of clients and employees. Our headquarters office is located in High Point. A second office in Lexington houses our business services and real estate teams and our third office in Winston-Salem opened in Spring 2016. In January 2023, we expanded to a fourth office in Hickory with the acquisition of Whisnant & Company. 

For both clients and employees, we’ve discovered that public accounting is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Different firms offer varying experiences, cultures, and work environments. Smith Leonard is proud to be a firm that offers an approachable, yet professional culture with a great work/life balance. We are consistently rated one of the “Best Firms to Work For” by Accounting Today and have benefited from the autonomy of local decision-making. At the same time, our affiliation with BDO as part of the BDO Alliance USA gives us access to far superior technical resources than you would expect from a “local” firm.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop relationship-driven professionals who deliver an exceptional client experience and collaborate with each other, in a fun and rewarding environment.
