What peers, clients and friends say about David:
Aside from being very tall, David is an intelligent person who cares about his
family and helps his community. He is hard working, resulting in him becoming
a partner in his firm by the age of 29, and he bought out his former partner
two years later. He’s been able to make his firm much more profitable
than it had been in the past by using technology and a systematic approach to
engagements to reduce staffing costs. David’s also a city councilmember,
volunteer for several community organizations, and a member of Mensa.

What technology or business process does David see affecting the tax
and accounting profession in the next five years?

“I think there will be even more of an emphasis on paperless processes
with the paperless office becoming the norm, and the few remaining holdouts
converting to realize the benefits.”
