Meet Our Staff:

David M. Gruber, CPA

David has been practicing in the accounting profession for over 35 years. He received his Bachelors of Accountancy at the University of South Florida-Tampa prior to joining a local Tampa firm as a staff accountant and gaining his CPA. Eight years later, David was recruited by a CPA firm in Naples, Florida where he was named Naples Manager of Tax Operations and was responsible for overseeing a merger with a second firm.  Soon after the merger, David was named Principal of the firm and his management duties were expanded to include the Fort Myers office as well as maintaining his duties at the Naples branch.  In 1996, David was recruited by Procraft Industries, LC, as it’s Chief Financial Officer, where he was tasked with reorganizing the Accounting department and their systems that were currently in place.  In February, 1998, David returned to the Public Accounting Profession and proudly opened David M Gruber CPA PA in Naples, FL and continues to operate the Firm today. Even while managing a successful CPA firm, David still finds time to do things he enjoys such as travel, golf, and gardening.

Chadwick M. Gruber, CPA

Chad earned his Bachelor of Accounting from the University of South Florida in the Winter of 2013 and immediately moved down to Naples to join the family firm. While working, he fulfilled the remaining education and experience requirements and obtained his Certified Public Accounting License from the State of Florida in 2016. He even passed all 4 sections of the exam on his first attempt, a feat that less than a third of candidates achieve!

Chad began his career in Public Accounting at a time when the biggest tax overhauls in history took place, such as the Affordable Care Act and the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act.  Although he thrives in a stressful and everchanging environment, the overhauls to the system were so significant he decided to narrow his focus to Individual and Trust taxation, to better serve the Firm’s clients.  This area is where Chad thrives as he feels it is the best way to have a direct impact on his clients and to help them achieve their financial goals. 

In 2021, Chad will be completing the Enrolled Agent exam to enter the Business tax world, while simultaneously fine tuning his knowledge of Individual tax knowledge and the best practices to represent clients before the IRS… and because he wants more initials after his name. 

In his free time, Chad is a self-proclaimed “Weekend Warrior” completing endless projects around the house.  If he is not home or hanging out with his dog Gizmo, you can find him hacking up a local golf course, relaxing at our one of our beaches, or looking for his next hiking destination.

Executive Assistant to David Gruber

Joanne can be considered the glue that holds the office together.  While her official title is Executive Assistant to David Gruber, she goes beyond her duties to keep the office running smoothly.  A native of New Jersey, Joanne moved to Naples in 2001.  Shortly thereafter she was hired by David M. Gruber CPA PA to put her many years of Executive Secretary/Assistant experience to good use.  She previously was the Executive Secretary for the President and Vice President of construction and engineering firms in NJ ensuring the smooth operation of all office functions and upper level management.  In her current position with David Gruber CPA PA, she has again become, and remains, an invaluable member of our team.  Outside of the office, Joanne is an avid gardener and theater goer, as well as the most loyal Florida Everblades hockey fan!
