Squire Announces Three New Partners and Leadership Changes at Annual Retreat

Salt Lake City, UT: 

Last month at its annual retreat, Squire & Company CEO, Jonyce Bullock, announced three new partners to the firm: Amanda Barrett-Brough, Matt Geddes, and Kevin Johnson.

“I look forward to working with our new partners in their new capacity,” said Bullock. “They are each experts in their fields and we are lucky to have them at Squire.”

Amanda is a Certified Public Account who joined Squire in 2005 after receiving a Bachelor of Science from Utah Valley University and a Master of Accountancy from the University of Utah. She works primarily in assurance services, specifically in real estate, manufacturing, insurance, HUD-approved programs, and technology and life science. She regularly attends the IASA (Insurance Accounting & Systems Association) local chapter meetings as well as the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce Women Business Network, VentureCapital.org, Women Tech Council, and Corporate Alliance events. As a member of the UACPA Financial Literacy Committee, she has the opportunity to teach people in the community courses on financial literacy. She is a 2016 AICPA Leadership Academy graduate—an academy that selects only 50 people in the country to attend annually. Amanda leads Squire’s Women Improving Professionally group. She is working with the AICPA Women’s Initiatives Executive Committee (WIEC) to help them create women initiative resources for CPA firms. Squire is one of three CPA firms selected in the nation to go through a women’s initiatives pilot program with WIEC.

Matt Geddes is a member of our assurance services team. He oversees audits of for-profit entities, local governments, and employee benefit plans. Matt volunteered as a lead adopter to the AICPA’s Single Audit and Employee Benefit Plan Audit Certificates and was among the first in the nation to be awarded these certificates which demonstrate his technical expertise in performing single audits in accordance with Uniform Guidance and performing audits of Employee Benefit Plans. Matt is also a member of the Government Finance Officers Association, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Utah Association of Certified Public Accountants. Before joining Squire in 2008 he earned both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Accountancy from Utah State University.

Kevin Johnson joined Squire in the Advisory group in 2004 and graduated from Brigham Young University with a master’s in information systems management degree in 2006. Kevin is an expert in Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft SQL Server and Excel. Since joining Squire, Kevin has helped countless companies through ERP implementations, training and custom integrations. He currently serves on the Business and Marketing Advisory Board for the Alpine School District and is also involved with Silicon Slopes and the Utah Technology Council. Kevin also leads the technology and life sciences group at Squire.

Squire & Company also announced changes in practice area leadership.

Two of Squire’s four practice areas have new leadership.  Reuben Cook will assume leadership of the Advisory Practice Area from K. Tim Larsen, and Wayne Barben will assume leadership of the Wealth Management Practice Area from Tim Christensen.  We thank both Tim Larsen and Tim Christensen for their practice area leadership and look forward to their continued support of the firm in their regular partner responsibilities.
