Nisivoccia Celebrates Over 50 Years Of Service

Nisivoccia Certified Public Accounting Firm Celebrates 50+ Years

Nisivoccia was founded in 1970 by Raymond Nisivoccia and has since grown into one of the most respected certified public accounting and wealth management firms in New Jersey. With over 100 staff, we are proud of the long-term partnerships we’ve formed with clients and the inherent values that drive our ongoing commitment to client service. From the very beginning, the firm has provided accounting, tax, and audit services for profit, not-for-profit, and governmental entity clients, domestically and internationally – with some of our first clients still active today.

Nisivoccia was built on the philosophy that looks beyond the accounting entries to the underlying operations and business situations, to provide our clients with distinctive and superior value-added services. The Nisivoccia Way is treating clients like family and building a team of professional and personable employees who value quality service. After 50+ years, these values still permeate everything we do today and will continue to inspire us into the future.

Bud Jones, who took the reins as managing partner in 2020, said Nisivoccia has been able to continue its exceptional service, helping clients become more efficient and profitable, simply by emulating the strength, conviction, and philosophies of its founder, Raymond Nisivoccia.
