Firm Overview

Firm Overview

Gerson Preston’s roots run as deep and remain as resilient as the tropical mangroves that typify the South Florida coast. Since 1959, when founder Gary R. Gerson first opened his door to clients, our firm has grown and evolved, transforming through the years to meet and match Miami’s rise on the global stage. What hasn’t changed is the firm’s simple philosophy – to effectively serve our clients, respect their needs and provide valuable guidance and stewardship of their finances and business needs.

Our reputation begins, and thrives, with our people, and their understanding of how the world market operates and continues to evolve. Miami is a growing global destination for industries and individuals who demand the highest knowledge and confidence to address these changing times. Gerson Preston employs top-notch accountants, skilled in a variety of disciplines, with the enthusiasm and passion to assist both domestic and international companies looking to invest or expand in our region.
