Meet Brandon

Brandon has over 10 years of experience in public accounting, including broad experience in all areas of taxation. In addition to providing traditional compliance and planning services to tax clients, he has recently worked closely with our tax partners in serving a large publicly-traded client on a multi-year engagement as an outsourced Tax Director. He regularly applies his strength and knowledge in the IT field to assist Smith Leonard in our endeavor to be a technologically strong firm, both internally and for our clients.

Brandon lives with his wife, Breanne, and two children in Randolph County, North Carolina. Prior to joining Smith Leonard, Brandon owned a commercial fishing operation.
