Stephen joined the BMSS team in 2009 and has over 13 years of public accounting experience.

People describe him as a team member who cares about the people he is working with and for. Stephen also has a humorous side and is down to earth. These attributes allow for a highly personable client experience. Given the intensive nature of Stephen’s work, being personable is a much-needed skill to help move along an otherwise daunting process. He attributes his success to his parents and education.
