Meet Jim


Honest and hard-working, Jim delivers a level of service that inspires success and improvement in both his clients and his colleagues. His passion for helping others and providing value shines through in his responsiveness to client questions.

Jim started with Mowery & Schoenfeld in September 2015, bringing with him five years of experience serving individuals and small businesses at another local CPA firm. He specializes in providing tax and accounting advisory services to closely held companies and their owners, and enjoys finding the value in what may appear at first to be a bunch of numbers.

Originally coming from a smaller firm without a formal training program, Jim delights in participating in MSLLC University as a mentor, as well as training the younger staff on technical tax and accounting issues.

Outside of work Jim is known as an avid football fan, with a particular keenness for the Green Bay Packers (of which he proudly owns 3 shares). On a nice day, he also enjoys playing an occasional round of golf.

In your own words, what’s different about Mowery & Schoenfeld?

Great culture and environment. It's nice to enjoy the people you work with and I love the fact that there is such an emphasis on growth and development, both technical and non-technical. Coming from a smaller firm where this was not emphasized is a very nice change.
