Ross A. Manson

Partner/Chief Advisory & Industry Officer


What inspires me each day is to continuously think about Eide Bailly’s future and work with our great people to identify innovative ideas we can tackle for the firm and our clients.


Ross fosters a culture of innovation, finding ways for the firm to remain relevant in the dramatically changing business world. He builds a culture of innovation through our people, services, industries and offices. Ross helps the firm analyze how innovation can benefit internal processes, products and services, and the client experience.

When you work with Ross, you’ll find an energetic partner who brings thought diversity to every process and situation. He’s excited about the future and how Eide Bailly and our clients can thrive.

When he's not innovating or helping clients, Ross keeps busy coaching youth basketball, playing golf, being outdoors and spending time with his family. He occasionally sits down, but you're more likely to find him on the move.
