Holloway and Associates have called Gather home in one way or another for the better half of the decade. When we decided to launch our firm, it was the natural choice for our office, harboring an environment we already had planted roots.
If you’re not familiar, Gather is a chain of coworking and shared office spaces across Virginia. Founded in Richmond, Ryan Holloway was an early member while working for Cherry Bekaert. Immediately taking an interest in community development and how to improve the lives of members around us, our partnership with Gather has helped foster a long-standing relationship where we’ve not only engulfed ourselves in the lives of coworkers…but in helping the space itself grow as well.
To highlight a little bit of our history with Gather, we decided to sit down with Managing Partner, James Crenshaw, to examine the impact Holloway and Associates have made, as well as what they’ve thought about working with us. Here’s what we learned:
Ryan found Gather when we first opened, and came to our grand opening party back in 2014.
At the time he was with Cherry Bekaert — a big accounting firm in town, and we came up with the idea of doing a community partnership where Cherry Bekaert would be a resource to Gather members accounting needs.
Holloway loved Gather, so when the time came for him to spin off and launch Holloway and Associates, he got an office with us. He’s been around since the very beginning and is familiar with all of how we work, which is why we have him handle Gather’s financials. From a tax accounting perspective, it’s helpful to have him because he knows we operate, collect revenue, and what our expenses are. He knows the space well.
Whatever tax advice, Ryan has got it. He gets me answers right away and is very accessible.
