Andrew Root – 2023 “20 Under 40” Influencer

Director of Membership

Current Career Highlights
As the Director of Membership at Rightworks, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for accounting firms, Andy Root oversees the strategic direction and execution of the membership program, which serves over 1,000 firms across the country. He leverages his 10+ years of sales and firm operations experience to deliver value-added services, resources, and support to the members, helping them grow their businesses and achieve their goals.

What are you doing to make a difference in the profession, your community, the world?
I spend a lot of time talking with vendors in the accounting profession as well as our member firms and what their daily goals and hurdles are to really understand firms on a practical level so that the Rightworks Academy is the leading firm improvement organization to help firms build a business that supports the life that they want to live and not a business that dictates it. We want to give freedom back to firm owners and their staff so that they can love their jobs and thrive.
