James W Ramsey
My favorite part of the job is developing relationships with my clients to the point where I am one of the first people they call when they identify a potential issue or opportunity and they want quality service to solve it.

James works with government agencies providing accounting, assurance and advisory services. Prior to entering in public accounting, he worked for a medium-size City performing virtually all functions of the Finance Department at one point or another. Wanting to obtain his license, he went to public accounting and has conducted numerous financial and performance audits, including single audits and other attest engagements for various local agencies (counties, cities, special districts and State agencies/departments). He merges his City experience with his previous audit experience to provide added value to his current clients, whether they are audit or advisory clients.

James also serves as an advisor to the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Accounting, Auditing and Financial Reporting Committee (AAFRC). James also appears on firm webinars for both in-house staff and externally for clients, speaking on topics including reporting, single audit and updates to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

When you work with James, you can expect him to take his time to fully understand your question/issue and develop a solution using a collaborative approach with you and others in your organization.

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.
