Ryan & Company Expands Into Houston

Press Release Jul 21, 1999

Dallas, Texas -- One of Texas’ most renowned tax service firms, Ryan & Company, will soon be calling Post Oak Central its Houston home. Founded in 1991, the Dallas-based firm has expanded rapidly over the past eight years, adding offices in Austin and El Paso. In July, Ryan & Company will break into the Houston market with its move of 20 professionals into 7,143 square feet of office space in Three Post Oak Central.

"We chose to become tenants at Post Oak Central because Crescent met all our requirements, most important of which was a central location with Class A amenities and services," said Mark Bennett, Senior Manager at Ryan & Company.

Ryan & Company provides its clients with a full range of state and local tax services. With expertise in every major area of state and local taxation, the firm boasts the largest transaction tax practice in the United States. Other specialties include the firm’s oil and gas exploration and production transaction tax practice that is the largest of its kind in the nation, while its major practice areas include excise tax, franchise tax, gross receipts tax, multi-state income tax, property tax, sales and use tax, severance tax, tax incentives and unclaimed property.

Extensive tax expertise and a broad range of services has earned Ryan & Company a well-respected name in Texas—which will be of great benefit to their Houston clientele. John Sharp, Texas Comptroller from 1991 through 1998 and Firm Principal, gives a strong testimonial to the firm’s capabilities: "I was able to observe virtually every tax services firm in Texas over the last eight years, and it is obvious to me that the practitioners at Ryan & Company are the best I’ve seen at representing their clients in a very effective and professional manner."

Brint Ryan, Managing Principal, adds, "Ryan & Company is committed to serving our clients with the highest degree of professionalism and the most proficient technical ability possible. Our mission is simple—to provide our clients with the most effective and thorough taxpayer representation possible."

For the future, Ryan & Company’s plans include growing its market share without compromising customer satisfaction, along with ongoing implementation of their national expansion program. The company is confident that it will continue to find success in the years to come, based on the outstanding service its approximately 100 professionals provide to clients.

Jane Page, Crescent’s Vice President, Houston Region—Asset Management, welcomes Ryan & Company to Post Oak Central. "With its success throughout the state, Ryan & Company is most deserving of its excellent reputation," said Page. "We welcome the firm to Post Oak Central and wish its continued growth as it enters the Houston market."
