Zach has had a winding path to end up in puclic accounting. When he graduated from the University of Alabama, he was dating Blaire long distance, and knew that he didn't want a career in sales. So he left Tuscaloosa and went back to work at the summer camp in western North Carolina where he and Blaire had spent the previous three summers. Blaire and Zach stayed on year round at the camp for four years, both becoming program directors. They eventually felt the need to move on, and chose Greenville, NC, Blaire's hometown. Zach graduated from the ECU Graduate program of Accounting and worked at a small public accounting firm in Greenville for four years. He gained a wealth of experience, but again felt it was time to move on. Zach is now the FInance Compliance Manager at a medium sized manufacturer in Eastern North Carolina, at least by day. After hours, he enjoys the opportunity to work with small business owners, delivering value to them through tax reduction and putting them at ease about their situation. Zach is not a salesman, but feels good about offering tax and accounting services. His straightforward nature and integrity translate into his work.
