Matt Brannan

Audit Senior Manager
Little Rock, AR

How I help . . .

I help clients achieve their goals and provide guidance when they have questions. I try to keep an open line of communication with my clients. I sometimes receive calls from clients at 6:00 a.m. and try to be there for them whenever they contact me.

I have a good memory. Once I learn something well, I do not forget it. In the accounting industry, rules are constantly changing, so I enjoying keeping up and learning all the time.

"I helped a client with some technical issues related to submitting an audit report to a governmental entity under a tight deadline, and together, we figured out the issues and got the report submitted with no exceptions noted."
