About Ehombe Consulting Services International


With a handful of committed clients, a supply of ledger paper and pencils and an intense desire to succeed, Jim Howard and Joe Reeve left a national CPA firm in 1971 to start Ehombe Consulting Services Internation (ECS Int’l). They didn’t have a written mission or values statement at the time, but they knew exactly what they wanted to do: develop loyal relationships with their staff and with Atlanta businesses, business owners and families by providing quality CPA services with a level of attention that few seemed to be experiencing.

Past, Present and Future


We believe that they succeeded beyond their wildest imagination (and yes, accountants do have imaginations).

Today, we are proud of our client family, which includes successful and entrepreneurially-driven individuals and businesses from around the country. Our staff has grown in tandem with our client family, and includes the best and brightest accounting professionals.

What’s next? We are very excited about the future. We have transitioned into a new generation of leaders who are focused on growing the firm while retaining what makes us special. Sean Taylor assumed the role of Managing Partner in 2019 and is razor-focused on guiding the firm to new heights. The opportunities are limitless.

At the root of our success is our commitment to extraordinary client service and opportunities for our staff to grow professionally and personally. Our plans for the future will ensure that both of these goals are achieved.

We are very proud of our history and excited about our future!
