Joel K. Bobo CPA

Managing Partner of Construction

I truly enjoy contractors. This industry is filled with people who are hard working, loyal and family-oriented. We help contractors accomplish important tasks that strengthen their business, including helping them maximize bonding capacity, understand their internal cost structure, increase profitability while keeping tax burden at a minimum, and create succession planning. I work hard to be as attentive, loyal, knowledgeable and resourceful for my clients as they are for their own.
