"I enjoy being the trusted business advisor to my clients and putting myself in their shoes. They reach out to me for guidance on the issues that keep them awake at night. 40 years in public accounting has given me the experience to help clients tackle a vast spectrum of issues and to make strategic business decisions."

Bruce is the founding Principal of Brown Schultz Sheridan & Fritz. In 2018, BSSF named him CEO Emeritus.
