Gregory B. Dyer
Mr. Dyer has been working in public accounting since his graduation from Washington & Lee University in 1980. He initially worked with Linton Schaffer & Company as a member of their audit team, before moving on to Frantz & Company as the audit manager and one of the firm’s primary business consultants. Following a brief run as a partner in a small local CPA firm, Mr. Dyer founded Dyer & Associates, P.C. in 1987.
In addition to managing the firm, he is actively involved in providing clients with the tax, accounting, valuation and advisory services required to enable them to maximize profitability.
Gregg has experience in bankruptcies, turnarounds, corporate restructurings and workouts, as well as extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions of private companies. In 1994, the firm launched its Surrogate CFO Program under his direction, to provide outsourced accounting solutions to businesses and individuals throughout the region. He has helped to develop a culture of “family” both within the firm and with the firm’s clients.
While the clients Dyer & Associates has worked with over the years cover a wide range of industries, his primary focus has been with title insurance agencies , members of the real estate industry (agents, brokers, and lenders), non-profit organizations (especially private schools), construction contractors and restaurants. His primary goal with each client, whether a business or an individual, is share his background and expertise to help them grow in stability and sustainability.
An active member in the title insurance industry, Mr. Dyer has been involved with some of the leading and largest title agencies in the Mid-Atlantic region. The firm has provided Surrogate CFO Services to over 20 different title agencies, including some of the largest in the Mid-Atlantic region over the last 20 years. Mr. Dyer has built, and continuously enhanced, the financial reporting systems, the management reporting systems, and the accounting and escrow processes with each of these clients. Some of the standards implemented by Dyer & Associates in escrow accounting procedures have been adopted by a national title underwriter and implemented as part of its standards for title agencies across the nation. At one point Gregg and the firm were providing full outsourced accounting services to three of the largest title companies in the Mid-Atlantic area that were generating a combined revenue of approximately $60m from 32,000 annual closings generated out of 73 offices.
Mr. Dyer has been involved extensively in both the acquisition and sale of over 10 title companies, and has provided valuation services to the industry. In addition to the accounting and management advisory services provided to the industry, he has provided training sessions to employees of title agencies, real estate brokers, and mortgage bankers.
Mr. Dyer has been a strong advocate of middle school and high school education in both professional and personal relationships. Under his leadership the firm has provided services to many of the top private schools in the area, including Mater Dei School, the Washington Jesuit Academy, Georgetown Preparatory School and The Heights. In addition, he has served on the Board at Georgetown Prep, chairing their Finance Committee for four years, and as a member of the audit committee at the Connelly School of the Holy Child. As one of the founding Board members of the Catholic Business of Montgomery County, Gregg helped to build the foundation for an organization that continues to provide financial assistance and support to schools in the Archdiocese of Washington.
In addition to his involvement in the area of education, Mr. Dyer has served on the Boards of the Montgomery County Community Foundation, the Loyola Retreat House, and was one of the co- founders of Victory Youth Centers, an organization that built and managed youth recreation centers across the Washington Region. An active member at his parish, Holy Redeemer in Kensington, Gregg was co- chairman of the school expansion committee that successfully added new classrooms to meet an expanding population, and served as the basketball coordinator for the parish CYO program for nearly 20 years. He has coached youth basketball and soccer for over 35 years, and is a member of the Catholic Business Network’s Coaches Hall of Fame. With the help of his wife, Diane, and their five children, Gregg has overseen the annual Prep Tournament, a middle school basketball showcase at Georgetown Prep, since 1984.
