History

Since 1979 Wegmann Dazet & Company, APC has been a trusted partner of businesses and their owners who realize our expertise can be one of their assets. The Firm’s history, however, goes back 80 years.

 

John X. Wegmann, Jr. started a public accounting practice in 1938, creating a local firm dedicated to the growth and success of its clients. Subsequent partner additions, mergers with other firms, and national alliances all paved the way to the establishment of Wegmann Dazet & Company over forty years ago.

 

In 2005 we became an independent member of the BDO Alliance; this international alliance gives us access to a wealth of resources nationally for our clients, to allow our further proactive client relationships.

 

Today we are one of the largest locally-owned CPA firms. Wegmann Dazet has six partners and more than seventy  other staff members. We manage and assist with the tax, financial, and accounting needs for clients in several industries: Oil and Gas Service Companies, Offshore and Inland Waters Marine Companies, Gaming and Hospitality, Technology Companies, Construction, Wholesale Distribution, Non-Profits, Retail, Manufacturing and Professional Services: Architects, Engineers, Physicians, Dentists and Attorneys, among others.

 

Having served our clients from various offices in the region, including a stint in the French Quarter in the 1980’s, we now have offices in Metairie and Covington. Solid growth, high operating standards, training, and commitment to service allow us to push and to grow into the future. Our “push” includes being proactive with our clients; we assist them in making complex and sometimes difficult business decisions. Our focus is our clients’ growth.

 

Wegmann Dazet provides audit, accounting, tax, and business consulting services. The legacy of our founders will continue  – one of total client service.
