Batesville resident Rita Wilder, a partner at Agresta, Storms & O’Leary and Columbus office manager, noted, “When we opened our Columbus office five years ago, we were convinced it would be an excellent location for the services we provide our clients. We are excited to mark our five-year anniversary in Columbus and to embark on the next five. We believe our clients have embraced our firm’s core values of continuously re-inventing processes, leveraging technology, welcoming change and providing timely, quality service to the business community. These recent personnel moves are a direct result of our continued growth in and around Bartholomew County.”
