The Team

Jon Miller, CPA

Jon loves where he lives and what he does. As an Air Force kid, Jon spent his days watching the best pilots in the world fly top-secret planes. He looked up at the sky and to the people who flew the planes. He planned to be a test pilot but decided that no matter what he did, he wanted to be the best in the field he went into.

Jon started a small company to fund his college education. He balanced managing a business and academics with great success. Initially, he was interested in entrepreneurship and was taking classes in business, human resource management and organizational behavior when an accounting class he took changed the course of his life. He graduated with a Masters Degree in Accounting from one of the top 3 Accounting schools in the nation.

Jon’s career followed the path dreamt of by any young accounting students. He was a partner in a CPA firm and worked at two of the largest accounting firms nationwide. He became a senior manager and then director in the tax department before a client hired him away to serve as CEO of a company. Jon was the CEO of two technology companies before deciding it was time to get back to his roots. He understands the thrill of creating a business and seeing it succeed. He also understands the responsibility of making payroll.
