Gabe attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois and graduated with both a bachelor’s and a master’s in accounting. He was drawn to Porte Brown due to its location and to the company’s small-firm feel. Gabe’s first position at Porte Brown was as a staff accountant, but he now holds dual positions as staff accountant and manager of the IT Department.
As a staff accountant, Gabe performs tax service work for clients. This includes tax consulting, monthly and quarterly accounting work, and the year-end tax wrap-up. As the manager of the IT Department, Gabe performs a large amount of internal consulting regarding processes and procedures related to the department’s software programs and new hardware setups and installations.
“One of the qualities that has made me so successful here at Porte Brown is my willingness to share new ideas with the rest of the firm. We’re always looking for new ideas to grow and improve so we can make the firm as a whole better.”
“The biggest piece of advice I can give somebody coming to interview is to view us as your career destination. When we’re looking for new recruits, we’re looking for people who want to stay with us long term.”
