Gary C. Grimes, CPA
Financial Advisor

I am a U.S. Navy veteran and a licensed CPA with 23 years of accounting experience.

After serving my country I studied at the Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington  where I earned dual degrees in business accounting and political science.

I began my accounting career in public accounting working for two different public accounting firms, Moss-Adams, LLP and Blue and Co. where I gained a broad range of experience including audit, tax, and business valuation.   The clients I served included high income individuals and family owned businesses as well as large, well known organizations such as United Way, YMCA, Teamsters Union, Louisville International Airport, and Blue Grass Airport of Lexington, KY.  I also spent two years as a tax analyst for American Commercial Barge Lines, one of the largest and most diversified marine transportation service companies in the nation.

I currently own my accounting practice and have the ability to provide a wide range of services; however, my focus is tax preparation and financial planning services.  I choose to specialize in these areas because I really enjoy the work and I truly enjoy helping people.

I currently serve as the Treasurer for the Dove Fields Homeowners Association and have served on other non-profit boards such as the Dream Factory of Louisville.  I am a member of numerous professional organizations including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Certified Global Management Accountants, and the Kentucky Society of Certified Public Accountants.

I am blessed with a terrific family and enjoy spending lazy days on the beach.  I love to read and am always looking for new investment opportunities.
