Founded in 1959, Diaz Murillo Dalupan and Company flourished at its infancy with the astute resourcefulness, prolific experiences and global connections of its Founder and Chairman Emeritus Luis C. Diaz. In 1960, Diaz made travel a life-long experience and visited over 30 US cities/states and countries in his eight-month stint as an Eisenhower fellow. This was an invaluable catalyst in the Firm’s growth. To manage its increased clientele and services, L.C. Diaz and Associates engaged new partners and changed its name to L.C. Diaz and Company, CPAs in 1970.

 

In spite of the political turmoil in 1970 and the economic recession in 1980, the Firm managed to grow thru creative entrepreneurial acumen, as it established branches to capitalize on the thriving commercial and manufacturing enterprises in the cities of Cebu and Davao. With this countrywide-expansion, L.C. Diaz and Company CPAs forged a partnership with a multinational global auditing firm. The fruitful alliance became a fertile environment for the best of the best – providing challenging career growth and strategic business development strategies.

 

In the early 1990’s, L.C. Diaz and and Company CPAs expanded by elevating internally developed Partners and Associates and changed the Firm’s name to Diaz Murillo Dalupan and Company CPAs – a firm acknowledge as a leading industry player. So when the Asian meltdown occurred in the late 1990’s, it had the strength to move forward in professional services and clientele.
