Brian R. Bluhm

I believe quality client service means being able to provide solutions for our clients, whether by utilizing a service I provide or by referring them to someone who is able to provide the service they need.

Brian ensures Eide Bailly engagement teams have the right tools and information to provide high-quality, effective and efficient service to our clients.

When he's not hard at work, Brian is an avid University of North Dakota hockey fan who also keeps up with Minnesota high school hockey. He also enjoys running and reading, at least until the game starts.
