Elliott Davis Decosimo Recommits Support Of Chattanooga Market As Elliott Davis

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Elliott Davis Decosimo, LLC is rebranding back to Elliott Davis, LLC on Nov. 1, citing the company’s almost 100-year legacy and market recognition under its original name.

Officials said, "One of the region’s most respected accounting, tax, and consulting services firms announced the new name while increasing its emphasis on supporting the local community Wednesday night."

Elliott Davis and the Chattanooga-based Decosimo merged in January 2015, expanding the overall company’s geographic footprint and increasing the breadth and depth of specialized service offerings within a variety of industries. The current name was a result of that merger.

In addition to announcing the name change during a special event for clients and area business leaders at the Hunter Museum of American Art, company officials committed to being the presenting sponsor of the Faith and Family Night at the Riverbend Festival from 2018 through 2020.

“The original name has vast recognition and a strong presence in the marketplace on both a regional and national level,” said Nick Decosimo, shareholder and Chattanooga market leader. “As we look forward to future growth in all our markets, we are pleased to show how much the people of Chattanooga mean to us by sponsoring Faith and Family Night at Riverbend.”

Rick Davis, chief executive officer of Elliott Davis, said the name change is part of an overall rebranding campaign aimed at highlighting the expertise and values the company has offered clients since its founding in 1920.

“We are celebrating the vitality of the brand and our recommitment to the communities we serve, our employees, and our clients as Elliott Davis,” Mr. Davis said.
