A triathlete accountant isn’t a phrase you typically search on Google. But it’s one way Bryan Gruber can promote his three-tiered approach with clients.
The swimming part involves diving into his clients’ business or organization and getting a comprehensive view of their horizon. The cycling phase is typically his experience recommending new processes, technology and structures that reduce cost and support efficiency. Similar to the final phase of running, Bryan and the team at LSL CPAs implement several services to help clients reach the finish line. The only difference is that clients are in charge of the pace and timing of services.
Bryan’s active outdoor lifestyle also alludes to his enthusiasm and energy for the world of accounting. Thinking he would eventually move into private industry, he is now an audit partner at LSL with no sign of slowing down. Overseeing the firm’s multi-faceted government practice, Bryan leads financial and internal audits, working directly with government finance directors and board members. He enjoys the larger responsibility of providing assurance to donors, members and the public – supporting community health and vitality.
Great Clients for Bryan… are honest. No problem is too big, and lying is unproductive.
