Brandon M. Waldren, CPA, CFE, CFI

Senior Manager

Isn't life a collection of weird puzzles with no answers to half of them? I enjoy helping my clients solve those puzzles and bring them confidence in their answers.

OVERVIEW

Brandon assists clients in understanding their internal control weaknesses that could lead to a material misstatement or fraud. If fraud is suspected or discovered, he works diligently to understand the extent of the damage and how to prevent it from happening again.

When you work with Brandon, you can expect a lot of questions, but the return of all the answers you need to put issues to rest. Specializing in Government Accounting and holding an AICPA Advance Single Audit Certificate, Brandon has the knowledge to attack unique issues with Federal and State entities, most are unable to provide. His professional experience and previous role as a Senior Audit Manager mean he's ready to work with you, whatever the issue.

Outside of work, Brandon enjoys movies, writing screenplays, teaching line dancing, fishing and spending time with family. Brandon also volunteers with Young Life and Kids Against Hunger on a monthly basis.
