"Eide Bailly is a great place to work because the firm gives our staff the keys to drive their own career. The firm provides opportunities for growth and doles out responsibility to young staff at an earlier time than most firms."

OVERVIEW

Brian joined the firm in 2001 and has devoted much of his career with Eide Bailly serving the accounting needs of public sector clients, including local governmental entities, public schools, charter schools, as well as colleges and universities. He also provides audit, accounting and consulting services to tribes, casinos and utility cooperatives. To support Eide Bailly’s commitment to staff development, Brian offers continuing education opportunities by serving as an instructor for firm-wide governmental trainings.

When you work with Brian, you get a partner who is intent on listening and allowing you to fully articulate your concerns. While that might mean he seems quiet at times, it also means your goals will be completely understood and attended to. Brian will always be responsive to your inquiries, as he also takes pride in responding within 24 hours to each of his clients.

Away from the office, you’ll often find Brian at the hockey rink either cheering on his two kids or volunteering as an assistant coach when needed. He and his wife both love to travel and make a point of escaping town a few times each year (sometimes they even bring the kids). During the summer, the whole family relishes time at the lake or simply gathering around the bonfire on the back patio with friends.
