Jon Brandt, CPA was born and raised in Marshfield, WI to a father that is a CPA and a mother that is a dental assistant, so you can say that specializing as an accountant in the dental and healthcare fields is in his blood. Jon attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and achieved degrees in Accounting and Finance. After graduation, Jon joined Schenck, S.C. and worked there for five years in the Fox Valley location.
Jon rapidly worked his way up to the role as a Supervisor and specialized in working with small business owners spanning multiple industries (manufacturing, retail/hospitality, real estate/construction, healthcare and professional services) providing financial consulting, tax preparation/planning, and solving the problems that arise on a day-to-day basis. Jon has a strong desire and skillset designed to help manage and grow the financial well-being of businesses through collaboration and teamwork. Jon came highly recommended to the team at Edge by several of his previous clients, all highlighting his tenacious work mentality and strong desire to get clients from “good” to “great”. He has been known as the guy you want on your team if you don’t want an unexpected year-end tax bill.
In his spare time, Jon can be found on the golf course (he is a single-digit handicap and is always up for a meeting on the golf course), in the gym, enjoying sporting events, or spending time with family and friends. Jon enjoys both the seclusion of hiking natural trails and comradery found at concerts and music festivals. Jon enjoys all genres of music (except death metal) and most of his friends have never beat him at “name that tune”.
Fun fact: Jon has younger twin sisters and he claims that they actually taught him patience!
