TITLE: Partner, Retirement Plan Services Leader

Gary Kitts has always had a solid understanding – and love for – finances and business. This passion is what originally steered him into the world of accounting. Early in his career, he would set up spreadsheets and databases to replace manual participant records for profit sharing plans. This ultimately led to his focus on qualified retirement plans and inspired him to start a retirement plan administration practice at a small CPA firm in Norfolk in the 90s.

Now with over 30 years of experience serving clients, Gary creates plans with intelligence and insights that are aligned with his client’s business goals. He leads the firm’s Retirement Plan Services practice where he oversees the compliance, plan document and consulting services for over 800 plans. He also has considerable experience with employee benefit plan audits including defined benefit, defined contribution, health and welfare and employee stock ownership plans.

Gary is a Certified Public Accountant in Virginia and North Carolina and is certified by the AICPA for Advanced Defined Benefit Plan Audits and Advanced Defined Contribution Plan Audits. He has also been named a “Super CPA” by Virginia Business magazine.
