Randy Warner has accepted a position as a Certified Public Accountant at Terry Reckard CPA in Huntington.
Warner, a Huntington native, is a graduate of Huntington North High School and Indiana University. He worked for Ernst & Young in Indianapolis from 1991 to 1998 and Ernst & Young in Fort Wayne from 1998 to 2013 before coming to Huntington.
"Terry happens to be my uncle, actually," says Warner. "We've talked over the years, many times, about someday, if things worked out in a certain way, that it might make sense for me maybe to come into this practice.
"Ultimately, it finally did."
There has been a bit of a learning curve, says Warner.
"Still getting my feet wet, frankly," he says. "Learning how a smaller CPA practice, like this one, works and runs. There's some differences, as you might imagine, from the big firm that I left. But it's been wonderful."
While Warner says that he's getting to know the clients at Reckard CPA, he's also brought some of his old clients from Ernst & Young with him.
"I'm staying connected to some of my former clients, which is always nice, to keep some of those relationships alive that I've developed over the years," he says.
Warner cites his background in agriculture as a big asset when it comes to providing tax services in Huntington.
"Grew up on a farm here in Huntington and still farm a little bit myself," he says. "So, certainly, that's an area of interest to me, an area that I think that I'm passionate about.
"So, I'm looking to provide those types of services to the ag community here in Huntington."
Warner also lists corporate tax work and individual tax planning among his areas of expertise.
He's excited to be back in his hometown.
"No matter what you do or where you go, it's always nice to come back home, and so I certainly view that as something along those lines," Warner says. "Happy to be back here in Huntington and excited to get things started."
Warner can be reached at 356-3414 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
