Don is a Founding Member of BMSS and is the firm’s current Managing Member.

Outside of his client responsibilities, Don is responsible for coordinating all aspects of the firm, including visioneering and leading the firm.

When Don decided on accounting as his field, he was looking for a profession in which he could be an owner, or a profession that would prepare him to be an owner. He wanted to be in a position to help people and their business relationships develop. Don co-founded BMSS in the hopes to do something different, to find a better way to build a firm and provide accounting services. He and his co-founders were young and hopeful with strong ideas that have materialized.
