Jared Holum

CPA | Shareholder, President

Perkins has always provided the best in auditing services. The audits are professional, non-intrusive, and well-planned. We have used Perkins many times for questions outside of the scope of their auditing contract, during which they have always been most helpful. We look at Perkins as a partner in our operation, not as a hard-line auditor.

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. His technical acumen includes 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.
