A Little History


In 1965, Walter Padgett had a vision. As a small business owner in Athens, Georgia, he witnessed fellow business owners struggling to manage their companies' tax and financial issues. His solution? Padgett Business Services, a company that provides small businesses with the expertise they need to address those issues and assist them in building a successful business. Decades later, we're proud to say, small business owners still rely on Padgett. So much so that now we have thousands of clients across all industries, and hundreds of local owner-operated offices, including yours right here in Eastern North Carolina!
