It is hard to believe that six months have gone by since we were anticipating the big announcement of our name change. The process was a lot more introspective and tedious than you might think. We look back now on these last six months, and how much the previous 42 years shaped what our firm is today.
We notice that our entire team has embraced the new name. During meetings with our mutual working relationships, we can see they have really taken to our new name and identity. One of the reasons may be because our email addresses have gotten a lot simpler. We went from sounding out three initials and trying to spell a plural business name, to just using our first names.
We’ve been asked if anything else happened internally in regards to the name change. And the answer is nope! 🙂. There were no mergers, no new ownership changes, nothing was sold, and nothing has been updated besides our name and refresh branding. We are dedicated to always be evolving as a business and helping create a company that can continue for generations to come.
In emails, or even on the phone, you may have noticed our use of nicknames for the firm. The two most popular being ‘Origin’ and OCG. Hopefully in the regular mail you have seen our new stationary, but we are still doing some housecleaning. An occasional Kingsbery logo, letterhead or signature stamp may still slip through the cracks. We are continuing to work on getting everything fully updated.
One announcement we are so excited to make is that we have Origin babies! Three beautiful, healthy girls were born to team members since the name change. And we have another girl on the way due in 2023! Congratulations to all of our Origin families. It has been such a joy to celebrate together!
After being Origin CPA Group for 6 months, I think I speak for everyone when I say it is feeling right! We are known for working together as a strong innovative team, and that is exactly what we did to accomplish the daunting task of finding a new name. We are excited about what the future has in store for us and for our business relationships. Every journey has an origin, and we are excited to start ours here and with you!
