Boston-area Firm Celebrates 100 Years

Waldron H. Rand & Company of Needham, Mass., one of the oldest public accounting firms in the state, is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

It was founded in 1912 by Waldron Rand, a president of the American Institute of CPAs’ predecessor.

To mark the anniversary, the firm is launching a charity campaign to donate 1912 volunteer hours to the community. Waldron Rand employees will volunteer for a beautification project at the Franklin Park Zoo in August, and the firm’s shareholders, staff, clients and business partners will assemble at the Endicott Estate for an anniversary reception in October.
