About Dermody, Burke & Brown, CPAs, LLC

Dermody, Burke & Brown (DB&B) is one of the largest locally owned certified public accounting firms in Central New York. Founded in 1956, the firm serves the region from four conveniently located offices in Syracuse, Auburn, New Hartford, and Rome. DB&B was founded on the principles of integrity, trust and community involvement and the very first dollars the founders earned were given to charity - a gesture indicating the principles of the firm would contribute as much to the community as they would the economy.  Today, our experienced staff, which consists of over 90 employees, is available to assist our clients in the traditional service areas of auditing, accounting and taxation as well as many areas of specialization, including pension administration, valuations, financial services, marketing consulting and information technology.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower our clients and our people to "live well" by providing valued advice and innovative solutions in an atmosphere that is professional, enjoyable and community minded.

Inclusion & Diversity: Stronger Together

DB&B is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and respectful environment. This commitment is woven into our values and beliefs. As an equal opportunity employer, our firm is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, class, gender, sexual orientation, gender orientation, country of origin, religion, mental health status, age, and disability. Inclusion is about actions and steps. We pledge to advocate for equality in the workforce and remain dedicated to our commitment to advance racial equity and social inclusion. At DB&B, we believe our differences are what make our team stronger.

Our firm signed the Central New York’s Business Equity Pledge to help build more inclusive and equitable workplaces in the region and drive progress on community-wide equity goals.
