Smith Leonard PLLC announces the election of Jimmy Eggers as its newest Partner/Member.
Jimmy has nearly 20 years of public accounting experience and has spent his career serving both privately-held and public companies and their respective owners. Jimmy began his accounting career in 2001 and re-joined Smith Leonard in 2016 after an 8-year hiatus during which he left the firm to start an internal tax planning and compliance arm within a registered investment advisory firm. In addition to his experience with comprehensive financial planning for high net worth families and business owners, Jimmy also specializes in tax planning and compliance for closely-held businesses in the manufacturing, construction, distribution, retail, real estate and not-for-profit industries. He is passionate about providing strategic advice and additional value-add services for his clients.
Mark Bulmer, Smith Leonard Managing Partner, commented: “Jimmy has been an asset to our team from day one, and we are delighted to announce his promotion. He is a dynamic and integral member of our tax team and dedicates his efforts not only to serving clients, but also developing our next generation of team members. We are proud to have him join the ranks of partner at Smith Leonard.”
A graduate of Appalachian State University, Jimmy has lived in and around the Winston-Salem area for all of his adult life. Currently he lives in Bermuda Run, NC with his wife, Misty, and their two kids, Cassidy and Austin. While away from the office, Jimmy enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf and listening to music. Among many other professional affiliations, he is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the North Carolina Society of CPAs and a 2018 graduate of the BDO Alliance Leadership Development Program.
