As the Columbus tax director, I work with my clients to manage their tax risks and exposures by providing them the information they need to make effective and realistic business decisions. My clients are typically middle-market private equity-owned organizations, and manufacturing and service companies with both international and multistate issues. I love having a career that allows me to work with many accomplished business owners — and drive their growth and profitability goals.
