Our History

In 1961, the late William F. Nicholson founded his own local accounting firm as a sole proprietor. The original office was located at 54 Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach and consisted of a staff of two.

Larry E. Reeder graduated from the University of West Florida in 1972 and began working with the Miami office of the national CPA firm, Haskins & Sells (currently Deloitte & Touche). Larry joined Mr. Nicholson’s accounting firm in 1973 and considered Mr. Nicholson to be his mentor and accepted his invitation to join him as a partner. In 1976, the partnership Nicholson & Reeder Certified Public Accountants was established.

Patricia A. Demski, a 1971 graduate of Choctawhatchee High School and a 1975 graduate of Florida State University, began working with Nicholson & Reeder in 1977. In 1985, Pat accepted the invitation to be partner and the firm name changed to Nicholson, Reeder & Demski, P.A.

Diana S. Reynolds, a 1983 graduate of Choctawhatchee High School and a 1988 graduate of the University of Florida, began working with the firm straight out of college.

Mr. Nicholson retired from the firm in 1993 after almost 35 years of public accounting. In 1997, Diana was admitted as the newest partner. Following the retirement of Pat Demski in 2005, the firm again changed its name to the current name, Nicholson, Reeder & Reynolds, P.A.

The firm moved to its present Fort Walton Beach location, 24 Walter Martin Road, in 1983. An additional location was established in 2005 at 4635 Gulfstarr Drive in Destin.
