In 1927, Edward W. Brady opened his own accounting firm in Grand Forks, North Dakota. A man named Baldwin Martz worked for Brady for a period of time before moving to Minot, North Dakota. Martz worked hard for many years to prepare him to establish his own firm, Baldwin Martz & Associates, in partnership with his wife, Shirley.
In 1981, Brady and Martz decided to join forces, merging their practices into Brady Martz & Associates. Since then, the firm has enjoyed much success and impressive growth.
