Jay has more than twenty years of experience in public accounting serving clients in a wide range of industries. He spent nearly seven years with a national firm, and the next 15 years with a local firm in Fort Worth, where he served as the partner in charge of the audit department.

Jay has worked with entrepreneurs, private equity firms, nonprofit organizations, and middle market companies in the construction, oil and gas, real estate, and manufacturing industries, among others.

Jay’s experience both serving clients and as a business owner has taught him the importance of integrating operational and financial processes to improve efficiencies, communication, and profitability. With that experience in mind, Jay focuses on building strong relationships with his clients at all levels within the organization to help business owners and their employees understand the key success factors, and how each person contributes to the overall success of the organization. Jay has also worked extensively with boards of directors and owners to help them understand their role in governing the organization, as well as designing policies and procedures to help them carry out those responsibilities effectively.
