What peers, clients and friends say about Trey:
Trey’s interest in developing technologies that aid accountants has driven
him in his professional interests, while his high integrity and willingness
to put others before himself are evident in all of his activities. He is a humble,
mentoring leader, loves life and loves serving people, and is excited about
how technology can impact business.

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

“Total network outsourcing will allow CPA firms to leverage technology
in ever increasing ways. No longer will they need to manage, support or maintain
their own network infrastructure. These firms will leverage Fortune 500 technologies
and staff while enjoying significant reductions in annual IT expenditures. Squarely
aimed at CPAs, total network outsourcing is a rapidly growing market intended
to allow firms increased focus on their core competencies and to better serve
their clients and business strategies.”
