Amol Nirgudkar, CPA and managing partner of Carrollwood-based Reliance Consulting, recently was honored as one of “30 Under 30” winners by the Tampa Bay Business Journal at a banquet dinner.
“I was very honored to be recognized as one of the community’s business leaders,” said the 28-year-old of the annual award that the Journal gives to recognize young excellence. “It is wonderful to be in the company of such distinguished nominees.”
A native of Bombay, India, Nirgudkar stood top of his graduating classes when he earned two bachelor’s degrees in accounting and finance and a master’s in accounting from the University of South Florida in Tampa. He was initiated into the accounting world as a staff auditor at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. He then took up a challenging position as tax and business consultant at an accounting and healthcare-consulting firm in Pinellas County. In 2003, he became one of the youngest CPAs in Florida to join as a partner of Reliance Consulting LLC, one of Tampa Bay’s fastest growing CPA firms.
The seven-employee firm offers a full range of business consulting, including comprehensive tax and write-up services. Additionally, Reliance assists physicians in Florida with several services such as practice formation, legal/tax structures, tax compliance & planning, mergers, acquisitions, asset protection, retirement planning and pension plan administration.
In the spirit of going above and beyond in offering innovative and value-added services to their clients, Reliance Consulting recently became one of the few CPA firms in the country to offer Physician Contracting and Support Services (PCSS). “We have brought on board a team of experts that will help physicians with managed care contracts, reimbursement levels and claims issues. PCSS allows us to finally level the playing field between physicians and the powerful insurance companies,” Nirgudkar said of the new service that is being offered by Reliance.
Reliance Consulting is located at 3105 W. Waters Ave., Suite 105. Amol Nirgudkar can be reached at (813) 931-7258.
