Edward M. Leitch, CPA (1946 - 2017)
Experience and Lifetime Achievements
Ed Leitch graduated from Mt. St. Mary College in 1968 earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. Upon graduation, Ed began his accounting career with the international accounting firm of Haskins & Sells and worked there until 1972, when he started his own accounting practice. Ed continued his practice for over four decades, servicing clients in a broad range of industries, until he merged his firm with GS&Co. in November 2016, where he was responsible for the Babylon office. Ed's vast experience in preparing individual and business tax returns, bookkeeping, and general client advisory services was a complement to GS&Co.'s practice servicing small business clients.
Following a very successful career and continuous dedication to his family, Ed passed away in 2017 after a long battle with cancer.
His character, dedication to family and clients, and great skill in working with small businesses were significant qualities Ed was well noted for, and he will be greatly missed by his family, friends, colleagues and clients.
