Firm Background

Accountants that Care

Founded in 1996, Scott T. Wallace, CPA, Anthony J. Plese, CPA, and Mark R. Dreher, CPA, formed Wallace, Plese + Dreher, LLP. Prior to forming the Firm, the partners had practiced together at a national CPA firm for over 15 years. They built the Firm on a timeless mission: client service, leadership, and employee engagement. This foundation still holds true today. Although our numbers have grown from 3 to over 60+ employees, we still hold true to our timeless mission.
