The History of Abdo
For 60 years, our mission has been to serve as proactive problem-solvers, providing partnership and guidance so you can take every step forward with confidence. But how did we get here?
Founder Joe Abdo establishes JM Abdo & Company in Mankato, Minnesota thanks to a $15,000 loan from his hardworking, Lebanese-immigrant mother. *
Joe’s oldest son, Jay, graduates from Mankato State University and joins the firm along with his friend and fellow student, Gerry Eick. This sparks a successful period of quick growth.
The growing firm opens an office in the Twin Cities area to better service the booming client base located in the south metro area.
Joe Abdo retires, and the firm moves to the name Abdo, Eick & Meyers, LLP to include partner Kyle Meyers’ name in the brand.
The firm undergoes a comprehensive brand evolution to become what we are today - Abdo. Shortly thereafter, the firm expands its reach by opening a new office in Scottsdale, Arizona.
* Fun Fact: The cash register used in her own small business can still be seen today in the lobby of our Edina office!
