We are CPAs. We are different. We are fun. Your stodgy antiquated tax firm of yore, we are not!

We are a professional firm with a personality and a personal touch. While accounting, tax, and advisory services are the heart of our business, relationships are our lifeblood. RDB professionals have a passion for working with private companies and their stewards. We listen, we ask questions, we customize solutions, and we care about outcomes. We strive to develop authentic relationships rooted in transparent communications, mutual appreciation and respect and, above all, doing right by our clients.

We are growing. Our team is looking for an experienced Tax Manager to join us in a broader role – both internally and externally facing – with significant impact across the organization.
