AGT History

Picture_030

Aiello, Goodrich & Teuscher, CPAs had its beginnings in Northern California. In November 1980, the firm founders Dorian Aiello and Charlie E. “Hap” Goodrich opened a small office in Weed under the firm name, Aiello & Goodrich, CPAs. Soon thereafter, Hap’s existing Mt Shasta office transitioned into a second location as the business expanded. In August 1991, the firm moved to the larger professional office building it presently occupies.

After vacationing in the Mt Shasta area for a number of summers, Lynn Teuscher decided that if there ever was an opportunity to move his family to this beautiful area, he would jump at the offer. That offer came in late 1990 when Lynn joined the firm. In 1992, Hap retired and relocated, which allowed Lynn to become a shareholder in Aiello, Goodrich & Teuscher, CPAs (AGT).

In late 2003, Steve Drageset joined the firm. Having lived in northern Siskiyou County for 13 years and having been a partner of a CPA firm in Yreka during that time, Steve was very knowledgeable of the region and quickly expanded the auditing department.  In 2016, Steve Drageset retired from the firm.

In late 2016,  Rob Griffith, joined the firm.  Rob moved to the Redding area in 1994 after the birth of his first child.  Working for Nystrom and Company (and two other merged firms) for over 22 years, Rob decided it was time to get back to his small firm rooms and merged his practice with AGT.

This move enabled AGT to open a second office in Redding and doubled the size of the practice both in clients and staff.  In addition, this allowed the firm to expand it's audit practice further into the Government and not-for-profit arenas.

The firm continues to grow and bring in new professional staff to provide for the broadening services our clients need. AGT takes pride in providing valuable tax and accounting services to a diversified client base in northern California and surrounding areas. The team consists of tax, payroll, QuickBooks and audit experts. The firm’s highly trained and qualified staff are dedicated to providing exceptional services that their clients value.

Aiello, Goodrich & Teuscher continues to focus on improving its employees, our clients and community it serves. In 2015, AGT celebrated our 35th anniversary; we look forward to many more years of providing the same high quality service we have since the firm was founded.
