How We Got Here

Our company began as Ott and Prados Public Accountants and Auditors in June of 1921 by Lionel Gordon Ott and Godfey

Olivier Prados, who became the 13th and 14th CPAs in the State of Louisiana. In 1940, Ott was elected Louisiana State Senator and New Orleans Commission Council as Comissioner of Finance and was re-elected in 1950. 

Richard G. Verlander became a CPA leading the company to gain its third partner in 1950. The company changed to Ott, Prados, and Verlander Certified Public Accountants.

In 1980, John Remy Busenelener became partner, changing the company's name to Verlander, Busenlener & Company.  A few years later, Busenlener took sole partnership in the company changing the name to John R. Busenlener, CPA.

Steven Bryan Johnson became partner in 1993. This partnership led to the current name of Busenlener and Johnson, CPAs.
