Growing Firm Cultivates Talent From Within To Better Serve Clients

Enjoying the fruits of a fast-paced Jacksonville economy, Pivot CPAs has grown 45% over the last five years.  To keep pace with the growing market, the area’s largest independent CPA firm has promoted four key staffers to leadership roles.  Managing Partner Peter Reynolds today announced the promotions of the following people:

  • Darrell Clarkson was named Tax Principal. Formerly Tax Manager, Mr. Clarkson will take on a leadership role within the company and additional focus on business development. He will have an active role in managing, mentoring and training staff.   
  • Debra Smith was named Senior Tax Manager, working extensively with small business clients providing tax preparation and tax planning services for individuals, corporations, partnerships, and trusts.
  • Eric Sevatson was named Tax Senior Accountant handling complex tax returns and resolving more complex tax matters than in his previous role as an entry-level tax accountant.  The new role calls for increased communication directly with clients and with junior personnel.  
  • Kyle Vincent was named Assurance Senior.  In his new role, Vincent will be more involved in the planning, research, and management of our engagements.  He will assist with the management and completion of audit, review and attestation engagements as well as develop audit programs and procedures relevant to risk and test objectives. 

Said Reynolds, “In our business, providing continuity to our clients is strategically critical, so promoting from within is important. It is part of our culture and brand philosophy that we take care of the people that take care of our clients.”  He added, “These four have constantly shown leadership skills as well as being talented accountants, and we are thrilled to provide them the opportunity to grow.”
