Our History

Devries, Trifiletti & Loy, Inc., was started in 1969 as a part-time business by Robert K. Smith, who was at that time a professor in the business department at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea. As more clients were added and the business grew, it became his full-time occupation in 1975. On October 1, 1977, the firm was incorporated as a professional corporation under the name R. K. Smith & Associates, Inc. Continued growth and the addition of professional staff personnel over the years have brought us to our present day organizational level. In 1992, Jim Loy became a shareholder followed by Dave Devries in 1995, Mike Trifiletti in 2001, Shawn Huntington in 2017, and Kevin Patno in 2023.
