Eric D. Budreau

I love coming to work at Eide Bailly because my job allows me to be surrounded by and interacting with bright, intelligent, creative and driven individuals and businesses.


Eric is a former business owner who uses that knowledge and expertise to find creative solutions for his clients. He specializes in tax and business consulting services, and he also has audit and private industry consulting and accounting experience.

If you work with Eric, you can expect assistance from an experienced former business owner who has well-rounded insight into tax and business consulting issues. He advises companies as they go through acquisitions, reorganizations and formations, and he's ready to help your business make the right decisions, too.

When he's not at work, Eric is probably in the crowd at Colorado sporting events, especially the Broncos, Avalanche and Nuggets. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, grilling out, working out and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
