The most memorable moment in his long career in accounting, according to Ron Causey, came in 1991 when he decided to co-found SC&H Group.
“Over the past 30 years, we’ve steadily grown into a nationally and locally recognized management consulting, audit, and tax firm, serving clients from private sector businesses to Fortune 500 companies across Maryland and beyond,” Causey said.
Since its founding, his company has made a number of changes. In 2005, for example, Causey opened a mergers and acquisition arm, SC&H Capital, that has grown domestically and internationally. In 2015, he created an employee stock ownership plan that gave workers ownership interest in the company.
“From the start, I recognized that establishing a culture based on collaboration and trust between our clients, colleagues and community members, would be our winning formula,” Causey said. “Continuing to listen and address their concerns is why we’ve been able to expand to 10 service lines and grow our team to nearly 300 employees.”
Asked what advice he would give the next generation of business leaders, Causey said: “Define your success by how you treat the people around you. Always see how you can lift others and solve their most pressing issues.
Among other honors, Causey’s firm has been named both one of the top 100 accounting firms in the country and one of the best accounting firms to work for by Accounting Today, a national monthly magazine on the accounting business. Causey himself has been honored twice as a top local CEO for the year by The Daily Record.
He serves on several boards and committees, including the Stevenson University Board of Trustees and the University of Maryland Accounting Advisory Board, and is the varsity wrestling coach at Hereford High School.
