Fort Myers, FL, January 2023 — Hughes, Snell & Co., P.A. (HSC) announces Steven M. Davis, CPA, has been named as the firm’s managing shareholder. Davis is stepping into the position that has been held by Sharon Thompson, CPA, since 2009.
Davis has been with HSC since 2000. He has served as firm general services shareholder and works with a broad range of clients on tax and financial reporting issues. He is a member of the Florida Institute of CPAs (FICPA) and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants ((AICPA). Davis is a past board chairman of Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida and served as a board member for 10 years. He also served as a board member of the Edison Festival of Light for 12 years. A Florida native, he graduated from the University of South Florida.
“My vision for HSC is to maintain the good reputation that the firm has earned over nearly 50 years while continuing to bring solid planning and advice to our clients in a fast paced and ever changing environment,” notes Davis. “I hope to continue providing the solid leadership that Frank Snell, Sharon Thompson and the HSC shareholders have demonstrated consistently through changing times.”
Thompson is the first female managing shareholder in HSC’s nearly 50-year history. She successfully collaborated with Frank Snell — the firm’s first managing shareholder — to transfer the first generation of HSC leadership to the second generation. She will continue as a shareholder and leader at HSC and will continue serving her clients.
