After joining the Mize Houser team in 1989, James became shareholder in the audit department in 2002. His work includes reviewing compiled financial statements, providing certified audits and other attest services, tax planning and preparation, and consulting on complex issues such as buy-sell agreements, succession planning and more.
“I enjoy the chance to work with the various individuals at each company and the diversity in the types of industries we serve. It’s rewarding to provide services to clients that they appreciate and respect. Clients come to us with a specific need or problem and we are able to work with them to enhance their systems, identify tax planning opportunities, and provide a more efficient accounting process. As a result, their bottom line is improved.”
