James W Ramsey

My favorite part of the job is getting to know my clients and providing them with excellent service. I particularly enjoy when they bring a complex problem that requires a lot of collaboration and research.


James works with governmental and nonprofit agencies throughout California providing accounting, assurance and advisory services. He has worked both on the client side and the assurance side and is able to provide this unique perspective to his clients. His expertise includes audits of governmental agencies, nonprofits and the performance of Single Audits. James is also a presenter for his clients presenting on topics including reporting, Single Audit and updates to U.S. GAAP.

Before going into public accounting, James began his career in the Finance department of a small city and performed most, if not all, of the functions of a finance department during his seven years there. This unique background and expertise allow James to provide more focused advisory services and solutions to his clients.

When not working, James unplugs by going on a long run on the American River Parkway in Sacramento or in the trails around Lake Tahoe.
