Robert FosterCPA

  • Senior Manager
  • Opelika

Robert became a part of the Opelika family in 2005, bringing over 21 years of experience to the firm. As a senior manager, he works with a variety of industries. When not working with clients, Robert is everyone’s go-to guy at the office for finding answers, and he plays a vital role in training and mentoring staff.

Having an uncle who was a successful CPA originally peaked Robert’s interest in accounting, and then, when his accounting classes in pre-business seemed to click with him, he decided that his future belonged in the world of accounting. Dependable and always willing to lend a helping hand, Robert is a key player in the firm and in the long-term relationships that have been built with clients. He brings a broad understanding to the team and is constantly investing in the next generation of employees.

Robert is married to his high-school sweetheart and has three sons and two grandsons. On his off days, he gives his time to family, church family, hunting, fishing and mission work.
