Tim W. LeClair

Providing assistance to our clients and helping them achieve their goals and objectives is the most rewarding aspect of my career. I enjoy interacting with clients and providing a high level of service.


Tim joined Eide Bailly in 1980 and has largely focused his public accounting career on serving the needs of financial institutions, although he also has extensive experience with small business consulting, as well as business and individual taxation. Tim has assisted numerous banking clients with regulatory applications for bank acquisitions, de novo banks, branches, holding company formations and other bank transactions. He is also responsible for the supervision, design and implementation of the annual Bank Salary and Fringe Benefit Survey.

When he's not working on behalf of his many clients, Tim enjoys getting outside to play in the sun. He's a doting grandfather who spends as much time with family as he can. When his grandkids aren't in town, Tim also likes to go hunting and fishing, and he has developed a bit of a green thumb over the years in his garden.
