About Us - Crawford Ellenbogen

Established in 1941

WHO WE ARE

Accounting Is More Than Just Numbers

It’s not just business, it’s personal. It’s about people and plans, options and opportunities, and financial health today for financial security tomorrow. More than just a process, it’s a relationship. And more than just a framework for compliance, it’s a foundation for growth, a structure for strategy and the tools and metrics you need to make informed, productive financial decisions.

Since 1941, CrawfordEllenbogen, based in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, has specialized in providing comprehensive, professional business consulting and advisory services. We work with closely-held businesses, families and individuals, start-ups, non-profits, government & public authorities – clients for whom our services are personal, and the bottom-line is always top-of-mind.

Although Pittsburgh is our home, our reach is international through our membership and involvement with INAA Group. INAA is an international association of independent accounting firms established to facilitate cross-border business and compliance. We work with clients in a number of countries.

To us, our clients are family. And to them, we are friends, partners and advocates.

As Certified Public Accountants, we are committed to the highest standards of knowledge and diligence in accounting, tax and consulting services. As professionals, we’re dedicated to timely, responsive and insightful delivery of services on behalf of our clients. And as people – just like the people we serve – we know the most worthwhile and productive relationships are built on a foundation of understanding and trust.
