Celebrating 80 Years!

Founded in 1941 as the first African-American owned CPA firm in Michigan, GJC is proud to celebrate 80 years in business. Over the years, GJC has helped businesses and organizations thrive, from Detroit businesses in Black Bottom and Paradise Valley in the 1940’s and 1950’s, to Fortune 1000 companies in the 21st Century. Our core remains the same today as it was when we started, which is to support our community and enrich the lives of clients, employees and families. During 2021, to celebrate our 80-year legacy, we will be making donations to 80 non-profit organizations!

Helping Our Community

Richard Austin established GJC 80 years ago in the City of Detroit. Since the firm’s inception, commitment to the community has been a central component of our mission. From our team volunteering in soup kitchens to celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as an opportunity to serve, we will continue to seek outlets to lend our time and talents to enhancing our community.
