GBC Updates

Defining a company’s culture is difficult.

It’s measured by observing our actions, by the productivity and happiness of our employees and by viewing the community organizations we support, especially in the Norman, Oklahoma community.

Our History

GBC was founded in the early 80’s. Over the decades, we have grown, moved our offices and expanded our services. Along the way, we’ve worked and grown alongside some amazingly talented people. We’ve developed deep relationships with clients who have put their trust and confidence in us. We thank you for this and seek your continued trust.

Appointed OSCPA Chair

New Oklahoma Society of CPA’s Chair Looks to Support Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion as the CPA Profession Continues to Adapt and Thrive.

Janese Shepard, certified public accountant (CPA) and partner with Gray, Blodgett, & Company, PLLC, has been named Oklahoma Society of CPA’s (OSCPA) Chair for the 2022-2023 membership year.


“The AICPA’s 2020 Integrated Report was titled “Adapt + Thrive.” That concept has stuck with me. The ability to adapt and thrive embodies us as a profession. Disruption happens, but it doesn’t hold us back. We adapt. And we thrive. Resilience is one of our key strengths.” Shepard said.

During her 25 years as a CPA, Shepard has served as the 2020-2021 Vice Chairman of the OSCPA Board of Directors and was named the 2018 Rick Kells Outstanding Tax Professional. Throughout her career, Shepard has witnessed the flexibility of the accounting industry in their pursuit to promote equality and inclusivity. As she steps into this role, Shepard hopes to continue to bolster a climate of growth.


“I am honored to be a part of your leadership and strive to continue working with you, as a society, to adapt and thrive.”
