With both public and private accounting experience, Jared can coach your game-time decisions.
If Perkins were a basketball team, we’d always be in the finals with a standout like Jared in our lineup. Listed at 6’7″ and weighing 225 lbs, this hardwood legend attended Pitzer College. There, he taught Gregg Popovich, coach of the San Antonio Spurs, the substance over style play that would propel the then Pitzer coach into the NBA spotlight. At least that’s how Jared tells it.
From hoops to calculators, Jared joined Perkins & Co in 2003 following a substantial mix of accounting experience including three years as a CFO and controller and 10 years at a Big-Four accounting firm. An important member of our audit and management teams, Jared’s extensive understanding of technical accounting issues prepares him to support businesses across a broad spectrum of industries, from small business startups, and nonprofits to multi-national clients with revenues exceeding $750 million. After leading our audit department as the Director of Assurance, Jared assumed the role of President in 2017, Jared is a leader in our Nonprofit Practice Group and is also a member of the Employee Benefit Plan Audit Practice Group and the firm’s recruiting team.
His technical acumen includes nonprofit accounting issues, including A-133 engagements, statutory insurance accounting issues, business acquisition due diligence and related purchase accounting issues, employee benefit plan auditing, and internal control consulting, including SOX 404 engagements. In addition, his background in both public and private accounting give Jared experience and insight to help closely-held businesses work through the tough issues and grow along the Business Lifecycle. With skin in the game, Jared offers knowledge and know-how to his clients. That’s something to root about.
