Doug Pounder, CPA
Doug's public accounting experience is extensive. Originally with a national public accounting firm, he was principally involved with auditing, including certain large SEC clients. After returning to Charleston in 1975, Doug became heavily involved with income taxes, attending various specialized tax programs. Doug's extensive background in auditing provides him with an excellent frame of reference to assess and evaluate "what the numbers are saying" and provide clients important feedback about their financial position. Doug's experience with income taxes (from preparation to tax planning and projections for all types of business entities) results in a professionally prepared and accurate tax return and the ability to offer important tax planning advice.
"Beyond the technical background, which can be suggested by other professionals, is my commitment to timely, quality service. I'm a product of the discipline of The Citadel. Further, I played baseball at The Citadel under the legendary coach, Chal Port. Coach Port had a saying - 'excuses do not change man's scorn for the loser and love for the winner'. I offer no excuses - only timely, quality professional services."
