Our History

Founding partner, Mike Brockway, opened a branch in Temple as a manager for a Waco, Texas-based accounting firm in 1976. A year later, Leland Gersbach joined the team and 10 years later Mike and Leland officially founded BGFN, choosing to serve the people of Temple. Leland became a Tax Partner in 1984. Steve Niemeier joined the firm in 1985, becoming an Audit Partner in 1992, and President of the Firm in 1995. Cindy Franklin moved from an Abilene accounting firm joining BGFN in 1998. Cindy became a Tax Partner in 2005. Terri Marshall joined BGFN in 1995 and became a firm principal in 2016, completing the BGFN Leadership Team.

Over the years, BGFN has remained committed to providing outstanding quality accounting services in the Central Texas area including Temple, Belton, Killeen, Waco, Gatesville, Georgetown, Round Rock, Leander and more. BGFN has provided invaluable service to companies and individuals by remaining focused on core accounting services rather than venturing in other waters. This prevents conflicting cross-selling or hidden motives.

One Firm Approach

Now, after more than 40 years from when Mike Brockway opened the branch in Temple, TX, BGFN proudly employs over 25 staff members – all of whom are passionate and dedicated to providing outstanding service for all clients, large and small. We believe in a one firm approach – everything and everyone is important.

We also believe in operating in a close knit work environment. Our staff are more than coworkers, we are family. Will you become part of the BGFN client family?

We genuinely look forward to serving you.

Peer Review

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) requires its member firms to undergo a peer review every three years. A peer review is a periodic external review of a firm’s quality control system in accounting and auditing.

As an AICPA member, Brockway, Gersbach, Franklin & Niemeier, P.C. has been meeting the objectives of quality control standards established by the AICPA for accounting and auditing as reviewed by Peer Review since 1991.
