Scott Holmquist, CPA, joined Edge like the many accountants before him, with a strong background primarily focused on tax & accounting, helping small businesses, and advisory services. He has worked with a large variety of businesses and individuals with tax preparation. His specialties in the past have included dental, healthcare, farms, small businesses, etc. He enjoys working with each client and building relationships to educate his clients on potential tax savings and strategies. Scott had an inside track on joining the Edge team based on his long-time friendship with Edge partner, AJ Rheinschmidt, CPA.
Scott originally hails from La Crosse (actually a small town called Genoa), Wisconsin, but now calls the Fox Valley his home. He attended college at University of Wisconsin- Green Bay and obtained his bachelor’s in accounting. He interned with Baker Tilly, a national CPA firm, for 3 years in college. After his internship he worked with Baker Tilly for 2 years and rose through the ranks to become a senior tax accountant.
Eventually leaving Baker Tilly, Scott joined a firm in Green Bay where he was given the opportunity to manage his own book of business and build a solid foundation of tax clients. Scott believes that a client is much more than a tax return and that every opportunity and discussion should not only be geared around finance and tax, but that the final product is based on each individual client, and their specific needs. Tax and accounting should not be a cookie cutter approach, rather a customized and tailored approach for each individual client. With this client-first attitude, Scott is going to fit in with the Edge team!
Scott and his wife, Cassandra, live on the East side of Green Bay and love the Titletown area. While not at work, Scott likes to hit the golf course or watch his favorite Wisconsin sports team in action. Outside of tax season, Scott enjoys helping his wife with photo shoots, as she is the owner of Cassandra Lee Photography in Green Bay!
