Our goal has always been to create a healthy, sustainable, and warm company that treats people the way we would want to be treated. No matter if we have seven employees or seven hundred, the golden rule will forever be at our core. We have been extremely blessed and fortunate to have assembled the team we currently have on our roster. In recent years, the significant growth of the firm has expedited our need to expand the leadership structure of the firm to ensure its continued growth and independence.
We are excited to announce the first round of partners below:
Matt began working part-time for the firm in 1995 at the age of 10. He sharpened pencils, shred paper, kept printers running, and made food runs next door to ensure the employees always had breakfast waiting for them. He absorbed many business lessons and picked up an entrepreneurial spirit at a young age. Matt played college basketball at Texas Wesleyan while working with multiple startups. Matt graduated from Dallas Baptist University with majors in Marketing and Business Communication. After much deliberation and recruitment to get him back within the firm, we were thrilled to have him back full time in 2011. Since then, he has been instrumental in growing the firm significantly and navigating all the hurdles that come with it. Matt also serves as the President of GreenBean IT and SOC Vantage. Matt will continue to oversee Operations and Marketing for MCPAs.
