He spent the next eleven years working for both a local and a regional public accounting firm in Charleston, South Carolina. Kevin’s public accounting experience has primarily been in the field of income taxation, although he started out in the audit department.

Kevin has also had a lot of experience working with partnership taxation and helping clients structure business transactions.

In 2011, Kevin left Dixon Hughes (now Dixon Hughes Goodman) and launched Family Office Solutions, LLC. This company, which was a lift out of Kevin’s practice, is focused on being an outsource solution for single family offices as well as multi-family offices and their clients.
