Dannible & McKee, LLP is a leader among full-service CPA firms that delivers superior outcomes through a unique combination of highly specialized technical knowledge in industries, deep understanding of individual client’s business and a commitment to personal, responsive service. We are trusted advisors that clients can rely on day-to-day for guidance, insight and a strong financial foundation to confidently make business decisions.

Our clientele consists of companies across New York State and the United States and represents a diversity of business enterprises. We are headquartered in Syracuse, New York, and have additional offices in Auburn, Binghamton and Schenectady, New York.

Every three years, our firm is subject to a peer review performed by an outside accounting firm. The firm has earned an unqualified opinion and no letters of comment in each quality review to date – a distinction achieved by only a small percentage of firms nationwide.

Our History

Our legacy was established as a partnership in 1978 by Anthony F. Dannible and Lance K. McKee. Their vision was to create a strong, regional independent accounting firm in the Upstate New York area, which could provide the business community with the highest quality accounting, auditing, tax and management consulting services.

Since then, our team has steadily grown to its present size of 107 professionals and support personnel, advising over 1,500 organizations on accounting, tax, profitability and strategy solutions. Our impressive growth has been the result of our dedication to the success of our clients. Every aspect of our business has been guided by our values and our commitment to putting the client’s interest first. In a complex profession, we have found our greatest rewards in the simplicity of helping good people prosper. This is the philosophy upon which we were founded, and it continues to serve as a cornerstone of the firm today.
