Winter 2021 Spotlight: Robert Gargone

This quarter, our spotlight is on Robert Gargone, CPA.

Bob, who started his career at one of the big eight accounting firms in New York City, started practicing in Hammonton in 1972. He merged his Hammonton-based firm with Alloy Silverstein in July 2008 to focus more on the customer relationships that he holds dear.

“I was spending more time on the business than in the business,” he notes. “What I love most is the people contact, the ability to help individuals and companies with their taxes. Merging with Alloy allowed me to focus on clients and the accounting work that I enjoy immensely. It also brought my clientele more resources than before.”

Bob provides accounting and tax services to clients in the retail, construction and agricultural industries, with Hammonton blueberry farms a particular niche.

Known for his responsiveness, honesty and professional advice, Bob has client relationships that span decades. “He has been wonderful and has always been there for us,” says one client. “We’ve been doing business with Bob for over 25 years, starting with my husband’s business. He took good care of us, always looking out for our best interests.”

Bob has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Saint Joseph’s University and is a licensed CPA in New Jersey. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Born and raised in Atlantic City and Margate, he resides in Galloway with his wife, Fran, and enjoys seeing his daughter who lives in New Mexico. In his spare time, Bob is an avid salt-water fisherman who can often be found on his boat in the Atlantic Ocean. Another passion is landscaping around his home, mainly with perennials and shrubs.
