J. Keith Moody, CPA

With a specialization in audit, accounting and management services, Keith helps clients maximize their financial success by continually searching for ways to improve efficiencies and root out the problems that can create financial challenges.   

Specialized Services
As the firm's construction practice leader, Keith serves many of the Southeast's most reputable general and specialty contractors.  He takes pride in helping these companies build their businesses on solid financial ground.  The contractors that Keith serve understand the need for integrity and structural fortitude in all aspects of their projects.  Keith approaches their accounting financial needs with this same mindset - integrity and fortitude in all aspects of financial needs.

Building a financially sound business is much like building a sound structure. Working with many contractors, Keith understands this and works closely with his clients in order to complement their existing operations and guide them through challenges and opportunities for optimal results.

Keith focuses not only on working for his clients, but also working in conjunction with them and their management teams to achieve goals.  Keith couples his extensive technical and industry knowledge, with the internal insights of the companies he serves. He has in-depth knowledge of the industry-specific issues facing construction companies such as the need for accurate accounting and financial reports, accurate estimates, options for increasing banking and bonding limits, and quality control practices. 

Keith also believes in investing in our team members and is the leader in our audit training program. He works diligently to make sure team members understand the need for seeking out ways to help the client solve problems and improve their operations.

“Crunching Numbers” for me is only one of the many things I appreciate about HLB Gross Collins. Over the many years of working with Pauline, who I consider my accountant and friend, I have developed a relationship which reflects trust and loyalty. I know she has my best interest as a basis for all her advice. Caring may be the key word. She is always available to guide my decisions in a supportive and professional manner. I consider myself fortunate to be a client.

Packard has been a client of HLB Gross Collins for 33 years, through the tough years and the growth years. They have been a loyal and trusted advisor to us for everything from Audited financials to our recent transition to 100% ESOP, we could not have completed this transaction without their expertise. The firm has grown with us over these years and we look forward to trusting them for all our accounting and tax needs for many years to come. I don’t know how to say enough about how I trust the advisors and friends I have a HLB Gross Collins.
