Wes is focused on leading Vault’s strategic efforts as the nation’s leading accounting and research firm for nonprofits and associations. He is committed to positioning Vault’s integrated specialized services to provide best in class solutions to our partners in the achievement of their missions.
More than twenty years ago, Wes gained an appreciation for the not-for-profit community. That appreciation then promptly turned into passion, and Wes began dedicating his career to serve this community.
Wes brings decades worth of experience understanding the unique needs of not-for-profit organizations gained through his various client service roles in outsourced accounting, CFO, and executive advisory and consulting services to help organizations navigate business challenges facing them today. Wes’s primary focus has been on charitable, educational, social service and membership organizations.
Wes shares his technical acumen by frequently writing or presenting on issues relating to not-for-profit organizations and accounting related topics. This commitment is further reflected through his continual professional education focused on the not-for-profit community and demonstrated with the completion of the Not-for-Profit Certificate program by the American Institute of CPAs.
Today, he is proud to continue working alongside the not-for-profit community while simultaneously building a legacy for Vault’s dynamic professionals. He is steadfast on delivering on Vault’s core values and the firm’s strategic goals while never losing site of the service commitment to our partners. As a leader, Wes is dedicated to building a strong culture of collaboration, innovation and belonging providing both personal and professional growth opportunities for our team.
When Wes is not volunteering or supporting causes and organizations, he personally champions, he is exploring other enriching opportunities that bring him fulfillment, such as traveling with his wife to explore all seven continents. To this day, they visited 30+ countries over 4 continents while viewing polar bears to mountain gorillas and the Big Five all in their natural and wonderful environments.
Wes graduated from West Virginia University and has his CPA from the Commonwealth of Virginia.
