The Firm was founded in January of 1974 by Pete Nichols, in Ontario, Oregon. Doug Lamm joined Pete in 1981, and the two of them incorporated the business in 1989 as The Nichols Accounting Group, P.C. A second office was opened in the Legends Building, in Nampa, in February of 2003 to better serve our clients in the Boise and Nampa area, and to provide future growth in the expanding Treasure Valley market. In 2016, Bob Kemble was named CEO of the Firm.
The Firm has grown and is the home to several permanent employees with seasonal employees added as needed. Firm shareholders are Doug Lamm, Robert Kemble, and Trevor Gunstream.
With more than 40 years of serving the community, we look back and are grateful for the people who have crossed our paths, both as clients and employees. We are thankful to operate in both Oregon and Idaho, where we believe the beauty of the landscape is only surpassed by that of its people.
As we prepare for the future, we’ll continue to focus on proactive planning strategies and services that will help our clients save taxes and grow wealth. We cherish our existing client friendships and look forward to building new ones along the journey.
