Fayetteville, NC – TRP Sumner celebrated the expansion of their Fayetteville location with an  open house and ribbon cutting ceremony on June 9. The need for expansion came after TRP  Sumner was formed in 2020 through the merger of CPA firms TRP and McFadyen & Sumner.  They realized they needed more space to accommodate staff and operations in their Fayetteville  offices.  

With an innovative solution, they purchased and added more than 6,000 square feet to a building at  2401 Robeson Street, thus creating the “Fayetteville Campus” along with their existing Robeson  Street office building. 

TRP Sumner currently has 18 CPAs and a team of 80, counting seasonal staff at tax time. This  includes personnel in the Dunn office of TRP Sumner, who provide a full range of services for  clients in that area. 

The June 9 event was more than a “bricks and mortar” celebration. Speaking to guests, Kelly  Puryear, Chief Executive Partner of TRP Sumner, noted that growth is indicative of success. “The secret to our success is our people,” Puryear stated. “We have many talented people at TRP  Sumner, and they have stayed true to the solid foundation and strong principles established by our  founders.” He introduced the founding partners – Burney Rivenbark, Joe Todd, David McFadyen  and Brent Sumner (still active as a partner at TRP Sumner) – who were all there to mark this  milestone for the firm they helped create. 

Puryear also credited the firm’s clients for their role in TRP Sumner’s growth and success. “We  grow by helping them grow their business or personal financial wealth. We have many  entrepreneurial clients and clients with diverse financial and operational needs. They have  empowered us to expand the scope of services we provide,” he noted.

Partner Matthew Smith received special mention for his diligence in overseeing and managing all  phases of the building expansion. Fittingly, Smith was given the honor of cutting the ribbon.  Following the ribbon cutting, guests enjoyed refreshments and had the opportunity to tour the new  Campus facilities and speak with staff members on hand.
