Our History

In 1984, Gary Summers purchased an interest in a Topeka based Certified Public Accounting firm that was subsequently reorganized into two separate firms in 1999. SS&C Solutions, Inc.is a tax and accounting services firm, which is over 50% employee owned through an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan). Summers, Spencer & Company, P.A.is a certified public accounting firm. We typically refer to both firms as “SS&C”.

The shareholders of SS&C structured the firms to provide quality accounting and attestation services to their clients at a reasonable cost as well as keeping those services personalized and timely. SS&C’s size provides an environment where creative, people-oriented professionals can practice accounting without the bureaucratic constraints inherent in a very large firm.

Our employee / owners are our most important resource. To serve our clients well, we have concern for our own people in their professional and personal development. The firm generates a working environment that motivates everyone to work at their fullest capacity and to work together toward excellence in client service.

The steady growth SS&C has enjoyed over the years indicates this approach has been successful. Summers, Spencer & Company, P.A. avails itself of the necessary audit staff for each engagement pursuant to an administrative services agreement with SS&C Solutions, Inc., which employs a full complement of auditing, tax and consulting services personnel.

Summers, Spencer and Company, P.A. shareholders are: Gary R. Summers, CPA, CVA, CEPA; Brenda K. Flanagan, CPA; Skyler W. Fairchild, CPA, CGMA; Stuart A. Bach, CPA; Brian P. Lang, CPA, CVA, CEPA; Michele C. Hammann, CPA, CVA; Scott Martin, CPA and Reid Hash, CPA.
