Anthony Smalls, III, CPA, CGMA

Entertainment, Sports & Media Industry Leader | Partner

As the head of our Entertainment, Sports, and Media (ESM) practice, I assist culture-shaping entertainers, athletes, and other high-net-worth individuals in growing and safeguarding their wealth, while capitalizing on the opportunities presented by the rapidly changing media landscape.

Since 2000, I have gained extensive experience serving as business manager, chief financial officer, and chief executive officer for startups, Fortune 100 companies, and high-net-worth individuals in the sports and entertainment industries.  

I specialize in accounting, finance, tax strategy, financial planning and analysis, financial reporting, and contract/deal negotiations. I also work with due diligence teams on prospective investments including television productions and live music tours.  

I began my professional accounting career in the Atlanta office of a Big Four accounting firm as an auditor and senior consultant in the management solutions and services practice. Prior to joining MGO, I was a partner and chief operating officer of the business management and tax firm, Superior Business Management, Inc.
