During my tenure as CEO at MGO, our firm has grown dramatically, expanding our footprint internationally and is consistently recognized as one of the fastest growing Top 100 firms in the U.S. without losing sight of our #1 goal: delivering value and peace of mind to our clients.  

The key to our enduring growth has been our push to build MGO into a firm at the forefront of professional services that leads in both stewardship and what we call 3D Leadership. We serve as proud stewards to a diversity of people holding entrepreneurial capital, seeking progressive, forward looking advice to navigate a rapidly changing business environment. 3D Leadership is about understanding that change is here to stay and it’s pervasive, perpetual, and often exponential. Our ability to anticipate and advise clients through this type of change is what sets MGO apart.  

As the needs of our clients evolve, so have the capabilities of our firm. We offer a truly global perspective and are proud to provide exceptional international tax, assurance, and advisory guidance to both in- and out-bound clients as they engage global marketplaces. Our services are supported by our fast-growing MGO India practice, which boasts four offices supporting our full array of solutions.  

Before taking over as MGO’s CEO in 2006, I led large-scale assurance and advisory services engagements for clients in a wide variety of industries.
