CPA, Undergraduate degree, Accounting & Business Administration, Rockhurst University
How did you arrive here?
I met my mentor and previous CFO of PFSbrands, Trevor, from a mutual company we worked for previously. I was immediately drawn to the culture of PFSbrands. To be able to be a part of an Open Book Management company and have a lead role in educating employees on business was a big reason I came to PFS. The opportunity to be a part of a new and fast growth ESOP company was what sealed the deal and I knew this was the right decision for me professionally and personally.
What’s the one problem you are best at solving for your clients?
As a CFO I’m able to give excellent advice on financial matters, but I’m also a really good all-around problem solver. Anytime someone says ‘we can’t do that’ I get excited and jump right in!
What would be impossible for you to give up?
My family, my faith, and Mizzou sports! My main goal in life is for people to see and know a husband, father, co-worker, friend, etc. who “did it the right way” in all aspects of life.
As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
Professional baseball player. I was obsessed with everything baseball and have quite the baseball card collection from my younger years!
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
Still hold the pound-for-pound weight lifting record at my high school (wouldn’t know it if you saw me today).
Name a funny/unusual job from your past:
I worked for my best friends parents pest control company a few summers. Best random job I had getting to see peoples homes (good and bad) and killing bugs!
