Founding Partner,

John Eder, Retires

After an exceptional career and 30 years as the founding partner of Eder, Casella & Co., John Eder retired December 31st, 2019.  John’s leadership and career were celebrated well with parties and many well wishes from the staff and clients he’s worked with over the years.


Although it’s business as usual for the firm as we gear up for our 31st tax season, John will truly be missed.  John’s excellent head for business, his loyal heart of gold and his hilarious sense of humor make him truly memorable.  “He taught me how to let go and give other people an opportunity to shine. I hope to never lose sight of that” said managing partner Shelly-Casella Dercole. We are happy to see him be able to enjoy this next phase of life. 

Over the last year, John did a great job teaching and advising the staff who have already transitioned into working with his clients. We look forward to continuing our commitment to serving our clients well in the new decade.

Remote Solutions

While we are watching the worldwide pandemic and continue to follow common sense and public health guidelines we understand that on some level, business needs to continue to go on. 

The accountants at Eder, Casella & Co are all able to work remotely from wherever business takes them. With all that has transpired over the last few weeks, we are increasingly thankful that our Eder Casella Technology team keeps these systems running smoothly and securely. We realize that many industries are being disrupted due to all the unforeseen circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although some businesses do not have the option to work anywhere but at their physical location, many could benefit from a remote system set-up.


Contact ECT if you would like more information and or help setting up a remote solution for you and your employees.



ECT has compiled a list of the top 10 priorities for working remotely safely. 

Our Gurnee Office is officially open at 6071 Washington St.

in Gurnee.  We are in the front of the new Honey Orthodontics building.
