Setting the Pace

The world of business has changed dramatically since Roberts, McKenzie, Mangan & Cummings first opened its doors. Our response to major technological, political and sociological developments, as well as our adherence to basic principles of business, have steered our firm and our clients through two decades of unprecedented change.

And RMMC has seen dramatic growth in direct response to our clients’ needs.

Success in any business relies on the ability to foresee the impact of change and to respond appropriately. At RMMC, this ability is seen in our transformation from a traditional tax and audit provider to an accounting firm offering an array of contemporary services to both businesses and individuals.

Our Firm

Our Mission:

At the firm’s inception, its four founding partners set a high standard for superior personal service for every client.  Since 1978, RMMC has earned a reputation as an accounting firm with knowledge, experience and a record of success.

Our commitment to this standard is apparent throughout the firm in the professionalism of every staff member.  Combining our commitment with our solid, long-standing reputation for quality results explains why RMMC is the accounting firm of choice for so many organizations and individuals in Southwest Missouri.
