Hoskins, CPA, in a statement. “For the past 25 years, we have been firmly committed to delivering the professional services our clients value. We look forward to extending this promise to clients in the Chattanooga area.”

In addition to acquiring a new office, Hoskins & Company has expanded its Nashville-based staff.  Dawit Aynachew, CPA, has been named partner; Michael Tesfahuney, CPA, has been promoted to audit manager; and Deborah Spenser has been promoted to office manager. In addition, Jennie Smith-Howard, Esq. has been named tax director, Alex Carey has joined the firm as a management support specialist, and Thomas Okokhere, CPA, and Stephanie Braden have joined as staff auditors.
