At Wilkins Miller, we know that our success comes from our employees’ unique abilities and personalities. Each month, we will give you a behind-the-scenes look at a member of our team. This month, we’ll introduce you to Brian Blakeney. We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know what makes Brian a great addition to our team.

Provide Financial Reporting and Assurance, Consulting, Business and Individual Tax services for clients. Internally, I play a role in our Firm’s Quality Control environment for our Accounting & Auditing Practice.
Q: What makes you good at your job?
I relate well to people of all backgrounds and specifically can make clients comfortable about the work we are doing for them.
