Following four years of Military service, including a tour at the Pentagon for the Secretary of Defense’s Office, and work experience as a staff accountant at the International Accounting Standards Board in London, England and local CPA firm, Brian founded Wendroff & Associates, CPA in 2006. He quickly established himself as an Entrepreneur’s CPA and an expert in technologically advanced accounting systems, being one of the first firms nationwide to offer complete online accounting solutions. Since its founding, Wendroff & Associates has grown in size each year and Brian has continued to upgrade the firm’s business advisory services to include outsourced CFO services, budgeting and forecasting and high level tax planning models, and free accounting and tax strategies on its social media. As Brian is fond of saying, a CPA firm needs to think of its clients throughout the year, not just at tax time.
Brian serves as the firm’s small business and nonprofit specialist, working closely with entrepreneurs to help them develop strategic accounting systems to make more informed business decisions to grow their organizations effectively. He is also a Service Disabled Veteran, and he works with government contractors to develop strategic cost cutting systems and multi-state tax strategies. Brian is currently working on an E-Book detailing various QuickBooks Online strategies for small business owners. He is a graduate of George Mason University, and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants. Brian serves on Intuit’s QuickBooks Online Advisory Board and in 2019 was awarded best Accounting firm in Arlington from Arlington Magazine and selected as one of the 100 most insightful people to follow on Twitter.
Brian’s favorite part of being a CPA is working with business owners to help them reach their organizational goals and create opportunities. Ask him why, and he will tell you, “Entrepreneurs solve problems, that’s what they do. And to be part of their team, to help them create solutions, that’s the most rewarding part of the job.”
