It’s all about planning for Bryan A. Ekern. Since joining PWB in 2012, it’s been Bryan’s mission to put in the detailed front-end audit planning needed to produce efficient audits. And by staying involved with fieldwork, he can identify areas for improvement and cost reductions. Saving money for his clients makes Bryan happy!
Working with a variety of clients in many industries, Bryan is able to share best practices from one client to another client and even from one industry to another industry. Making a client’s job a little easier, or even just answering an accounting question is truly rewarding and something Bryan strives to do with each of his clients. Bryan also sits on the MNCPA’s financial reporting committee, examining submitted financial statements for proper form and disclosures. He shares his critical thinking skills and passion for details with not only his clients and coworkers, but also the accounting industry.
Bryan and his significant other have a young daughter, a young Goldendoodle named Sparkle and a middle-aged cat. Bryan plays tennis, golf and hockey, and admires Wayne Gretzky for his accomplishments and modesty. Relaxing, spending time on the links and taking his daughter somewhere fun sounds like the perfect free day to Bryan.
