Smart. Friendly. Outgoing. When he became an accountant, he broke with a long family tradition.
As the sole accountant in his large Calgary, Alberta, family, Will is a trailblazer with an easygoing disposition and a flair for numbers. A senior audit manager at Perkins, Will graduated from Brigham Young University and earned the third highest score of 1,200 candidates who took the CPA exam in Oregon in 2008.
A gregarious guy, Will naturally builds strong rapport with his clients. His sincere interest in learning about the individuals and companies he serves is undoubtedly a big key to his ability to connect. “Whether it’s a real estate, manufacturing or nonprofit site visit,” he explains, “understanding a business is one of my favorite parts of the job.”
When he’s not face-to-face with clients or heads-down at his desk, Will loves to spend time with his family – he has four children under the age of 12 – or rock out on his Martin acoustic guitar with his low-key blues and rock garage band. Beyond that, maybe there’s time for a little sleep.
