McComas Begins Principal Accelerator Program, establishes SMB Accounting and Tax Practice in Columbia, South Carolina
COLUMBIA, S.C., May 31, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dark Horse CPAs, a top accounting and tax firm serving small businesses and individuals across the nation, announces the hiring of Brian McComas, CPA as an Accelerator in the firm's Principal Accelerator Program. McComas' vast and diverse accounting experience in public accounting earned him a seat in Dark Horse's Principal Accelerator Program.
Brian earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Alabama along with a CPA license from the state of South Carolina. He brings to Dark Horse 16 years of experience with national and regional CPA firms in the areas of tax and accounting, serving a wide range of individuals and entities. For quite some time, Brian felt that the traditional business model of public accounting was begging for disruption, but he didn't see any alternatives outside of starting his own practice. In Dark Horse, he saw an opportunity to build a practice within a completely different business model than the firms of old.
When asked what made the Accelerator Program compelling, he responded, "the longstanding public accounting business model needs a shakeup. It hasn't worked well for clients or accountants, since most firms have overworked their staff to the point of client services suffering substantially. Dark Horse understands that a better way to ensure that clients are taken care of is to ensure its team members are taken care of. I no longer have to choose between my family and my work."
In terms of the work, Brian noted, "what we do as accountants is important. Supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses is my life's work. I love being their strategic partner from both the standpoint of business advisor and tax advisor, helping them to maximize their business' cash flow and minimize their taxes."
"Brian is the one who almost got away," says Chase Birky, CEO and co-founder of Dark Horse CPAs. "We had to work extra hard to get him on board because, as you could imagine, his previous firm wanted him around for the long haul. Sometimes things have to come together in just the right way at just the right time in order to come to fruition. Serendipitously for Dark Horse, such was the case with Brian. Now that he's onboard, we have wasted no time in introducing him to new and prospective clients. We're excited to see him build his dream practice and bear witness to his personal and professional growth along the way."
About the Dark Horse Accelerator Program
The Dark Horse Principal Accelerator Program was created for entrepreneurially-minded CPAs that want to build a scalable book of business without the personal and financial sacrifices required of starting a firm from scratch. Dark Horse empowers their CPAs with the resources and support to grow intelligently and profitably. Their proprietary technology, flexible staffing and industry-leading systems and processes enable CPAs to focus on being the trusted advisor to their clients, unlocking unprecedented value in these relationships, so that they will continue to be relevant long into the future while their counterparts become increasingly displaced by technology.
Accelerators are put through a training program that acclimates them to the firm's exclusive tech stack, followed by proprietary sales training and one-on-one coaching. Upon completion of training, they begin building their book of business by fielding inquiries from potential Dark Horse clients. To facilitate their growth, Accelerators have full-time and fractional professional personnel support at their disposal. A collaborative group of like-minded CPAs go the extra mile to help them out in areas where they lack expertise. This new CPA firm business model includes an active corporate team that ensures their work is of high quality and strategically focused. After successful completion of the program, they can become an equity principal of the firm.
The Dark Horse Principal Accelerator Program is currently accepting new Accelerators. Interested CPAs are invited to dive deeper into the program on Dark Horse's recruiting site, abetterway.cpa or by emailing [email protected].
